    Manco build

    Been a while since I've been on here, but things went pretty well with this build and i finally got to race it this past Sunday. It's got a stock GX160 Honda engine with the governor removed. Clocked it at a top speed of 31 mph after i built it. I discovered that i need to go to a 420 chain, so...

    Manco build

    Picked this up from a buddy, and am turning it into a little short track parking lot racer/fun bike. It's all stripped down now and painted black. More to come!

    It says Garelli but im not so sure, any ideas?

    Same engine was used on the Indian Mini-Mini MM5A. Also made by Italjet.

    1973 Alsport Tri sport TS290

    I have one of these waiting for me to go pick it up along with some mini bike stuff. What engines were on these originally?

    Mini Bike I.D. needed.

    From what i can see doing a fair amount of searching, it looks like the red bike is a Manco Trail Cat Model 250. Model 7 had folding pegs and different fork/bars.

    New guy here with I.D. needed on a couple of frames.

    Having a hard time figuring out exactly what that green one is. The seat mount tabs are like the ones on the yellow and the red bike, but the fork is like the one on the blue bike. I think i've narrowed it down to Bird (probably Falcon) because of the seat mount tabs, but i don't know what...

    Mini Bike I.D. needed.

    Cool! Thanks! Can you see enough of the purple on behind the red one to make a designation on what it may be? Sears Roper, perhaps?

    Stumbled across some more info about the green frame. Looks like it may be either a Sears Puncher or Bird Falcon, because of the front suspension. Do the same things hold true for the tubing diameter being 7/8" (Bird) vs. 1" (Sears)? If anyone is holding, i could use the complete brake mechanism...

    Got the Huffman stripped down the other day. The pic is before i started. I need to chop off the welded nut and rod sticking out of the left side of the frame, and get it smoothed out, then it's off to sand blasting. i have the fork sitting upside down soaking in PB Blaster so i can try to get...

    Mini Bike I.D. needed.

    Hey all! A buddy of mine has these minis and we're trying to I.D. them. The blue one is similar to the Puma/Gemini that i saw a few posts down and has a Torque A Verter. It looks bigger over all than the Puma, to me, though. The fork is a little different, also. Not sure what the red one is OR...

    Thanks! I'm sure they're probably rusted in there at least a little bit. Time to break out the PB Blaster!

    Do those forks come apart? if so, do you know how they come apart? i'd love to be able to pull them all apart and get them cleaned up and/or rechromed.

    YES! That looks just like my frame! Is the bracket under the seat really wide?

    Perfect! Thanks!

    New guy here with I.D. needed on a couple of frames.

    Wow! That was quick! Thanks! What are the differences between the Duck and the Drover? Do you know the tubing dimensions of each? I assume these were both made in the 70's .

    Well, those were supposed to be thumbnails, instead of thumbnails and huge pics. Ugh...sorry...

    Hello everyone! I've got a couple of mini bikes that i unearthed and would like to see if anyone knows what they are. I've done a fair amount of searching on here, but haven't come up with anything on the blue frame. I think the green one may be a Bird, or maybe a Sears? Sorry for the crummy...
