Hello.

Anyone seen this mini bike before?

I was thinking it might be an ARCO Reynolds, not sure.

Also, what kind of strange brake system is this?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The frame is a Manco from the trailcat series, The forks I believe are from a Bird made bike., The seat is something you would see on Later Arco/dailex/KEZ and powerdyne (mesinger seat company made). That brake setup is custom, although there were some larger bikes I think that did use them, the bracketry looks homespun.

ok, thanks. I was thinking about picking this up for a new restoration project. However it's too much of a Frankenstein bike for my taste with all the mods.

The brake set up is a stock industrial Airheart Tolomatic MB1 with a floating caliper.
