The mini bike is something that everyone should experience at some point in their life, whether it be a vintage bonanza mini bike, a rupp, or a new Coleman CT200 or TrailMaster MB-200. This 1970 Fox Condor is a perfect example of a barn find mini bike that anybody could have found. In this episode, we get the old Tecumseh 4 horse (HS40) running, we take the bike for a spin, and we share our tips, tricks, and thoughts on buying your first mini bike!
Thanks for Watching!

My friend across the street has some generic one. Some other kids in my neighborhood have coleman's and ATVs, and then there's the dirtbike gangs and the bmx hooligans. I'm not allowed to have one because they're not street legal. That's fine though because I'm already about to buy a classic car anyway, so getting won't won't be much use now.

Down here in ga.. you wont get any mini bike or go cart for 150 dollars Be prepared to pay at minimum 300 for a rolling mini bike Go carts are worse 300 for just the frame with nothing on it Also be careful of RESTORED Mini bikes or go carts restorred down here means bondo to hide severe rust and pitting and a rattle can paint job and a price tag of 600-1000

I hate those diaphragm carbs, they are always trouble and hard to fix and sometimes hard to find the right repair kit for and on that bike there is no need for a diaphragm carb because the fuel system is gravity fed, the only benefit to those diaphragm carbs is you can run the fuel tank lower than the carb and they will work upside down which is important on something like a chainsaw or weed eater.

Great Vern and joy your stuff then watching for a few years tip about 30 weight motor oil did you find an old engines is non-detergent the dirt falls ass expansion with you no overtime it looks great on you pull the dipstick out even though it’s 30 years old there’s a lot of additives that are gone overtime you should never start an engine with Old oil just because it looks good, it really it is not. Flush your engine with Marvel mystery oil, do not start it, but fresh 30 way to Oil in it, then start it

Nice to see a flat head engine project happening. I have a 305cc Briggs that I'm considering the Aisin 300 supercharger install. Can you guys help me with proper camshaft, carburetor ect ? Model 195412 Type. 1137-01 Code 9401261B Any and all help is highly appreciated. I'm building a cruiser bicycle trike using the rear chassis from a club car golf cart.

LOL, those mini-bikes cost about $150 in 1973. Not much depreciation on that one.😁 Heck, I bought a brand new Honda CB 350 4 cylinder for $1597 +tax, in 1974! That old 4 horse sounds like brand new. Usually those older Tecumseh's would wear out rod bearings in a hurry if you didn't stay on top of oil changes. The rod knocking was usually the first thing you heard coming down the road on a well-worn Tecumseh!🤣 *EDIT:* Incidentally, those old diaphragm carbs were simple and easy to repair, unless they were exposed to water (or ethanol later on). Any ethanol enhanced gas will turn the diaphragms to concrete.😜

In my area 150 for that is a steal. Thst bike looks mostly unmodified except the carb and is in great shape. I just picked up a 1971 speedway stinger for 125. Flat tires, rear tire rubs on the scrub brake, no suspension, forks have been broken and welded what looks to be 3 or more times, wrong engine, leaking oil, broken kickstand. And that was the best one for the money that i could find. Got it home and poured some gas in it and it fired right up after sitting for 5 years.

Suspension is the word, is the word, is the word that you heard It's got a groove, it's got a meaning Suspension is the time, is the place, is the motion Suspension is the way we are feeling

I 69 or 70 JC Penneys sold a mini bike called The Golden Pinto and It was 149.00. We had about 10 kids in the neighborhood with mini bikes. We had too much fun. Honda Mini Trail was 312.00 . I bought a 1972 Honda SL 100 brand new with my hard earned money and it was 525.00 still remember that day. Now I am 62. Never had so much fun with so little. Life was simple and safe then.

Hey @CarsandCameras I had a question about how to tune a mikuni carb on a stage 1 (almost stage 2) predator 212cc non-hemi. I’ve adjusted the fuel richness with the needle but still can’t get it to run right at full throttle. Runs great from 0-32mph (0-85% throttle) then it cuts down to idle. Any ideas or advice? Thanks!

Hello. I love your videos. I need some help . I have a 49cc big bore pocket bike motor and I want to hook up a kill switch. We have had 3 different kill switches and they all don't work when we plug them in to the motor. So something is wrong. There is one wire coming from the motor and I am assuming it is a kill switch accessory wire. It has two plug in ports so my kill switches all plug in but do not stop the motor. What am I doing wrong. Please help.
