My 5th Predator Hemi in a new Gilson frame with OldMiniBikes band brake on motor, Hilliard clutch.
Bike broke in nicely, ran smooth, idled great. Then after about 3 or 4 hours of easy run time on
non-ethanol premium canned fuel........ it wont stay running at full “choke off” position.
Can keep it...
I have a recently rebuilt Gilson swing arm style mini-bike for sale.
Got it as a bare frame.
It uses the original jackshaft with a new sprocket on the rear wheel.
Has maybe 3 or 4 miles on it as you see it.
The wheels were upgraded to 8 inch billets with new tires. Has OldMiniBikes band brake...
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...
Fine tuning this project now.
The original HM80 runs great and had the 7 amp lighting set up on it.
I wanted electric start SOOOOO, put in a brand new 11HP Tecumseh,
retro fitted the flywheel and 7 amp set to it and added a starter and battery.
Its got a switch panel on the front fork...
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...
Looking for any comments or experience re-carbing with this motor.
I have been working on a MW Trike on another post:
But, I thought I'd post a couple of pics of what's going in the trike...
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...
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...
Does anybody have pics of these mini bikes?
I'd like to do a fat tire project next and have seen cool versions of
each, but I'm not a historian on these and would like to know what I should be
on the look out for…
Here's my pile of parts entry….God help me!
This one's going to be a real mutt….. The original Gilson front fork was demolished, otherwise I'dve
restored it. So it'll be a hodge/podge of the following pictured parts:
Honda CT110 front fork
71 MotoSkeeter 350 handlebars
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...
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...
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...
