Picked up an Old Time Mini Bike


Yeah I was Looking at a Few that they sell . One good thing about this Mini is I mounted the Clutch inboard and that guards the chain a Little bit more . I can tell you one thing you don't want to drop a chain off one of these at a high Rate of speed no That back wheel Locks up right now . Yes I had it happen before-two times on other Mini Bikes . The chain that I worry about is the Long one that's going on the Bike Build hmm

Yesterday I pulled off the front wheel . I ordered new Front wheel Bearings the ones that are in the wheel now most Likely are factory and they had rust coming out and sounded rough . They are sealed bearings so I don't want to take a chance of having them Lock up at High Speeds and causing a crash . Once the mini is all Dialed in I want to take My son in Law out so he can run the Mini around a Bit . He is excited about it and He treats My Daughter well so Maybe I will build him one too ?

I use to hit the Ground Running Like most of us when we where young . But don't want to test that out now . Heck the other day I tripped over the Dog in the Hallway I Didn't see Her ? It Took Me a Few to get Back up Ha-biggrin She's ok Like a Darn Rock She didn't even get up Just kept Laying there biggrin

Them Bearing were cheap Like most of the Parts for these Mini's . I was Questioning them Front Bearings when I assembled the Mini they rolled a Little rough . I shot some Lube in them only to have rusty oil come out . I Like when they call Bearings Sealed Bearings . Yeah only Water can get into them .

I took My Son in Law out today to Ride the Mini Bike . We had a good day of it with nice weather around 70deg's . First I Took him by that empty store parking Lot to get use to Riding . Then I found a Place next to the railroad with a Hill to climb . At the Top it had a Danger sign I said ride up there -> biggrin . I can tell ya this you had to hold on real good or you for sure would wreck . Lots of good sized Rocks on that trail Kind of wanted to see how that Engine Runs Down Low when it can get really worked Ha-biggrin

Like I told the Young Man Hold on that Mini Bike Tight ! We had a Helmet that I had him wear in the First Parking Lot . But it was way small for his Head . On this trail you Feel Like you want to just hit it wide open but then there is no way to keep from crashing . You would have to keep it dead on the best part on the Hill and Hold on for dear Life Ha-Ha . I need to pick up a Larger Helmet . Like I told him do not get Hurt ! Because if you do My Daughter will Kill Me !

I told him this Mini Bike is his . I think I am going to build another so we can do more riding . And yes pick up some more safety gear . When riding on trails Like this you don't ever get to the RPM's for that Governor to hold it back . This is were that 212cc's shows it's torque pulling power . I will keep Looking for a steeper Hill to see how it can do .
