Intresting Weekend

I've been away to a friends down country.

Surprise to me, He had bumped into a guy that has had a pair of mini bikes in his basement for the last 25 years!

The one is a MTD Trail Flight, All O.G. but the 1971 TEC 3.5engine is bust. Sounds like a connecting rod.

Chain guard is a little rough but can be fixed. Brake cable broken an needs some TLC.

All of the bike looks correct and a survivor ! that needs love.


The other one
, I have no clue what it is and will post to " What is it " when I'm home again, in order to post photos.

It is Teal Blue/Green, forward foot pegged, long'ish seat ( recovered ), Has center spring in front fork, Twin tube frame,
bottom and top - 3.50/4.10X4 tires.

Here is the strange part, Has no mount holes for a TEC or Briggs. Tall front engine mounting tower, from the
base plate, then two small towers at the rear. All looks to be OG paint, so I think it has no MOD'd done.

The Engine in it now, does not belong but, Fits like a glove and dam near looks OE factory.

Here is the kicker, It has a 50cc YAMAHA dirt bike engine installed. If any mods were done to put this engine in,
it is barely noticed ! Such a kool looking Mini. Can't wait to post pics .

Looks like I may be fixing the pair of them, ? bike for my buddy, the Yamaha engine one.

An the MTD, for the OG Owner.

Post photo's later, when I'm back home.

Already took the engine out of the MTD. She's a Gonner ..

Something to do with the lack of oil I think, zero oil in the case.:no:

After taking off the flywheel, I see the engine is covered in oil and it has been doing this for sometime.

Just covered in dirt an oil. This is a sure sign the crank seal was gone and not looked after.

Many parts would be needed to rebuild this one. Crank, Rod, Piston, Valves, ? cam ? .
just for starters.

The other bike will need tires and a clean up, Runs great.
