[img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/haha.gif[/img] funny, that's what I thought when I bought it, [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/hmmm.gif[/img] turns out there are several different brands. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/stupid.gif[/img] Having more info will help in purchasing the correct parts. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/scholar.gif[/img]

Chris, Looks like a Jc Penney brand, had one. They were called Golden Pinto. Scrape a little paint off and see if there is golden paint under there, if there is, its probably a Penneys brand, made in late 60's-early 70's. I think Bird Mfg. made these for Penneys,or made one very similar. Rupp is another brand similar. Craig

That small coil spring on the fork stem must make it the &quot;Easy Rider&quot; model. I've ridden Harleys with that same style rigid frame for years. I can tell you for sure it isn't a comfortabe ride at all! I cringe and hang on when I see a bump in the road coming up! Ouch, my back!!!!! Cool little mini bike there.

Wow, I thought I was the only one around here goofy enough to restore a minibike. I just resurrected my old Heathkit. Frame is acid washed, awaiting primer and some Lemans blue. My friend put together two motors for it. One stock and another with so much compression I can't even pull the cord unless it's bolted to something! Already had the seat re-covered as well.
