    Pennzoil Kart body - Rick Mears number 1

    I recently bought this body and it had a junk frame. The body is in excellent condition and all graphics are in great shape too. I believe that Pennzoil had issued a number of karts for their dealer network, but really don't know much history. Some were issued with different drivers...

    My Gilson- MW progress.

    Been a while since I posted anything. Cancer and chemo slowed me down, but back among the living and spinning the wrenches again. The Brittany Blue one below is mostly original and just about done now. Need to modify a new brake band to fit the Gilson brake set up. Have H60 that might go...

    Montgomery Wards ZCQ-13995B / CESTAD Find

    Thought I'd start a thread on the trike I got recently. Although it resembles the "T555" MW trike (ZCQ-13395A) it is not! This one has a Tecumseh 8HP (HM80) with lighting coil. It appears to have been very well taken care of. The front fender is undamaged & has the original mudflap. The...

    Can we verify that this is a "Bulldog" 3 Wheeler?

    HI Gang I just scored this one off of eBay. It was advertised as a MW T555…. but, it's not. Sorry about the bad quality…. Looks to be a "BullDog" of 70s vintage with a fairly big Tecumseh in it. Anyone know more about it? I saw a couple of Bulldogs on the internet that had shorty...

    Clueless on make and model!

    I'm re-doing this one and you may recognize my preference for reptile upholstery as seen on the Project Log thread! (not sewn yet!) I found this in Amish country with a Tecumseh H35 that had blown a hole through the crankcase, disintegrated the piston, and scored the crank and rod real bad...

    Montgomery Wards 525 Build

    This is my first mini bike build. I picked this up in Sept. not knowing what exactly what it was until I got into it and came to this Forum! It's not quite done, as evidenced by the, un-sewn as yet, alligator upholstery! It was originally "Brittany Blue" and I found a GM color that was...

    Hello, New here and just finished a Montgomery Ward 525 swing arm mini bike in Brittany Blue. As luck would have it I just found another identical complete chassis and fork assembly for $45 at a swap meet. However, it was missing the hard to find oil impregnated, flanged bronze...
