    71 Rupp Spitfire

    Hi folks, Been on the site for a bit, decided I’d share my bike. Started life as a 71 Rupp frame, forks and swing arm. Dubbed the “Spitfire” because it would backfire pretty good with the first muffler so from there the name stuck. We do a lot of ice racing in the winter so I needed something...

    I made some steel extensions for mine, about 3” longer. Work well but I really like the look of this setup. Might have to weld up a long swingarm!

    I’m very curious on the swing arm, did you Chop up and lengthen it with other Rupp swing arms? Also loving the forks. If you don’t mind me asking, what’s your gearing?

    Wow that’s awesome! Cool find indeed, just fired it up, sounds healthy, exhaust is a little messy, could use an RLV. Also I agree on the TC, a cheap 30 series will get my chain height in the right place. The comet centrifugal only leaves the chain about a quarter inch over the swing arm pivot...

    cant complain, needs a few things. Just glad it has a flathead! From what I’ve found after disassembly is that it has a high lift cam, it’s a koolbore 5hp with an 030 piston. Very clean cylinder with nice hatchmarking with the exception of one light score. Brand new centrifugal. Haven’t heard it...

    it’s a pretty neat mini, has a Briggs 5hp on it now, was looking for a yard rider as my Rupp is a bit more of a race mini. Chain will definitely be quite long so we’ll see
