Building a Budget Doodlebug Mini Bike | Max Fun for Under $200!

We bought a Doodlebug mini bike rolling chassis! In today's episode, we get our DB30 running by assembling a 196cc engine our of two parts engines. The Doodlebug is one of the most popular late model mini bikes, among the Monster Moto, Mega Moto, Coleman CT200, Lil Rascal, and others. I really like the DB30 because of it's size and handling- it's stiff, but it handles really well. Unfortunately our hot laps were ruined by sub-par tires and a VERY muddy track, but we had fun building and riding this cheap mini bike nonetheless!
Thanks for Watching!

Guys it's kind of long but please read it because I just solved all of your rough track problems. take it from a man that started plowing fields and mowing hay when I was nine and my grandpa was out getting drunk and everybody thought he was doing the work. I live on a thousand acre farm in the Beautiful Green Ridges of East Tennessee. I'm three quarters Cherokee, and one quarter Irish. this is a century farm.this land was given to my great-grandparents 136 years ago because both of them were full-blooded Cherokee. I have lived here my entire life my nearest neighbor is 6 miles and that's my great uncle. Really the only time I was gone was for the 8 years that I spent as a United States Marine corps scout sniper before I lost my leg and my eye half my face is titanium got fake knee and a fake hip and part of my spine. Anyway I've been on the farm my entire life and all you need to fix your land is laying around there. Your lawn mower has hydraulics right? Then why not build a Yard box like for a tractor or a reverse snowblade as I call them that goes on the back and you can drag all of that is smooth as silk it's like a bulldozer with the blade in the back. You could build a 9 tooth which is probably what I would use all you need is a few truck leaf springs and I'm sure you've got plenty of those Ike and a square metal frame you cut the leaf springs in half well them to the metal frame put blocks concrete blocks on top for weight and drrag that son of a bitch around. You can look up pictures or go to the co-op near you and look at the farm implements and go home and build your own the right size for your lawn mower.. does it have a three-point hitch on it on the back with hydraulics? If it does even better that way you don't have to use weight you can use the weight of the actual mower to push it into the ground. Then find you an old king size mattress with springs in it burn that but not super hot don't let it get hot enough to bend the springs anyway throw a bunch of rocks or steel or concrete blocks on top of those springs chain it to the back of hell the cross cart or whatever and drag it over the recently cut down in shaped land it will pick up the rocks and it will powder the clumps of dirt you won't have to touch anything except for pull the mattress to wherever you want to dump the rocks off and just dump them off of it to the side that way you kill two birds with one stone you pick up the big rocks and you make your track smooth honestly you could probably do this instead of worrying about using a blade or a 9 tooth you could probably just take and make a square metal frame lay it flat on the ground and drag it around and it will not a lot of that big shit down and make it smoother and then do the mattress trick and it'll pick up the rocks and make it smooth as a baby's butt.

I used to a mini bike alot like this one way back in the 70s when I was just a kid mine was called a little Indian and yes it was made by Indian motor cycle company they made a line of mini bikes and 50 to 250 c.f. dirt bike's it was there last ditch atemp to stay in business back then it didn't work they still tried of course I should have it would be part of history by now but I didn't I well I was a kid I wasn't thinking like that back then. But I did keep it running for about 10 years back then I whent in the army when I was 19 years old and I left it one of my brothers and I don't know what he did with it from there but it was good. Times as I remender it hours and hours and hours of fun on it I hopped mine up to where it go 65 miles an hour till this day I still miss it

My 1960s Rupp Chopper (I got it in 1972) was almost identical to that bike and an old Briggs 3 horse was enough for that frame given the small tires and no suspension. It was great for riding around on main roads at 3am, hiding from the cops, but I had to keep the speed down in trails. I still prefer "scrub" brakes, they get jenky when wet, but never fail or overheat.

Best Option for simply SMOOTHING loose ground is a scrape blade. But to bust it up and make it movable you’d want a cultivator or a tillage tool. Box scrapes are only good for 1 thing, dragging big loads of dirt over holes/ruts to fill them in. Or just moving piles of dirt in general.

Hi guys, looking at you changing the oil in the old engine, occurs to me that you probably have a fair bit of used oil around, With winter coming and the oil check out GerrysDiy on how he has made simple oil burner heating for his un Insulated tin shed that is so hot middle of winter he works in shirt sleeves. Watch "Fantastic Output - TIN CAN - Waste oil Burner" on AM-posts Great video guys Tony from Western Australia

You need a disc to loosen up the ground before you use the box blade, you should be able to find one an old one for cheap. A drag disc would be best, a mounted disc doesn't work as well and is a lot more money.

Diesel fuel and gasoline mixed together and sprayed lightly will get rid of termites as well as wild plants.weeds.friends.houses etc... You'll have to vacate for a few days and avoid any open flames inside for a few days but it will get rid of them... Once the gasoline evaporates and the fumes clear the diesel will still be in the wood and termites no likie diesel doaked wood at all...

Funny thing is, the front tyre was on right to begin with. Arrow facing forward on top is for traction. Arrow facing backwards on top lowers rolling resistance. Since the front doesn't brake the tyre should be on "backwards" Actual motorbike tyres will have a directional arrow for front and back and are ONLY designed to go in that direction and HAVE to be mounted correctly. Single compound off highway tyres, it doesn't matter. The reason people believe arrows must forward is because on machinery arrow forward on top means arrow backwards on bottom pushing dirt to outside of tyre, arrow backwards on top is forwards on bottom and it drags dirt to the centre of tyre when slipping which "lifts" the machine. On a tractor pulling a plough this chatters and means less traction.
