H25 Tecumseh 1969 birthday boy


Well-Known Member
1969 H25, this True mini bike from the factory version engine turns 52 in a few days on November 7th. Took alot of internal parts and a very expensive hard to find muffler to get it back in shape but came out really nice. $800 plus the ride.

What brand and color single stage automotive urethane did you use and what is the heat rating?
I use Nason Fulthane which is a product of Axalta. No idea of heat rating. It’s a color I have the paint supply shop I work with mix for me custom. Thanks for your interest
Hey Marcus, how are you? Took a look back at your motor. Man......that's a beauty. I'm guessing you're probably going to make what..........25 cents an hour for the work you put-in on it? (little joke there, ha) I sold my last Lil Indian project frame to Zoom a while back. If I still had it, I'd probably jump on that. Just my opinion, but if it runs as good as it looks, it would be well worth the money. I'm guessing some may think 2.5 horses aren't enough, but I'd have to respectfully disagree. I think it's plenty enough to push those little wheels fast enough to potentially send any of us to the hospital for an extended stay. (ha) In fact, I'm currently working on a 2.5 HP Honda GXH50 for a project. Soon as I get far enough along, I'll post a pic. Anyway, stay well, and good luck with the sale.
