    Manco Streaker

    For this years build-off, I decided to do this Manco streaker I've had laying around for awhile. Hopefully I picked the right category, I'm assuming its a pre 1989 based on the fact that is has aluminum split rims but I'm not 100%. The plan is to bring it back to mostly original, with the...

    Copying plastic parts?

    Whats up guys. I've got two later model manco streakers that I'll hopefully be building in the next couple months. The issue I have though is I only have the clutch cover and fenders for one of them. The other is missing all of these parts. So I have a good set I could use as a template. Does...

    Speedway Shrike

    Hey guys. Up for sale is my Speedway Shrike. When I first picked it up, it was really rough and hadn't run in years. I tore it all down and painted the frame hunter green.

    I had so much fun last year, I just had to do it again! This is what I believe to be my 1971 Sears roper mini bike. (Please correct me if I am wrong.) I actually picked it up last night for the sole reason of restoring it for this years build-off. It appears to be mostly complete, but man is...

    What did I find?

    I just picked up this roller locally. Did a little research and think it's a Cat maybe? I wasn't able to find a Cat that came with a jackshaft though. There aren't any markings on the frame that I can find. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Tav2 30 series torque converter (aftermarket)

    This is an aftermarket Tav2 30 series torque converter. Not a genuine comet. I bought this for my build-off mini bike this past winter but I decided a standard centrifugal clutch was better suited for the build and no longer need this. It works great and has nothing wrong with it. It has maybe...

    What's going on guys. I need some suggestions to fix an issue I created for myself on my build-off bike. I'm running a predator 212 hemi and I had to use a 15 degree engine mount so the torque converter would clear the frame. I'm running the stock engine mounted tank. The problem now is most...
