    That sounds like a lot but a repoped one is 1249.00 with the engine clutch cover and scrub brake. i don't know if they sold any at that price but a original one should be worth more.

    Taco 22 Mini Bikes are back in production, Rupp, Tote Gote Minibike

    oldsledz, and that's not even including shipping, so it's more.

    and you probably would have to pay sales tax on the new one also.

    Were it simply a frame it would be pretty high but it's a roller that's ready for an engine and it's one of the most desireable minibikes around! I feel great having paid $50 for mine but it's a few hundred bucks away from the condition this purple beauty is now in!

    The trouble is that the value of a vintage Taco is in it's originality!

    This one is painted very authentically (I assume you used Joe's color - "powder" coat, not power) but the Azusa wheels and new non-Carlisle tires, combined with the removal of the scrub brake and the addition of the Azusa drum brake (i'm guessing) really lower the value! I know you will say that they are mechanically better but they have no value, and detract from the vintage valuation!

    And comparison to Joe's new manufactured bike prices is pointless - his prices are based on what they now cost to build - in fact they have no other value!

    Yeah that's why the no appraisal rule is in place, the market and the buyer set the price in the end! It's a really nice minibike but I'm more comfortable buying on the cheap off CL or just stumbling across some sweetheart deal!
