    Trailmate "Not-so-mini" Mini Bike

    This is the Trailmate I picked up about a week ago. Its going to be my main mini bike project for the next few months. Its a wreak. Front is all messed up, its all rusted solid.
    Gotta tear it all apart, clean, repair, and replace. I can feel my wallet get lighter already...

    I'm about 6'3" tall, so this bike is just about my size

    More pics as the progress on it goes.

    not much progress, and no pics since I dropped my camera

    So now the front end is taken off and the chain is removed. Rusted solid! But besides that not much done. I did get a new chain and a new spool of welding wire. Spraying every boly with PB Blaster and hoping that I can hammer the axles out. Its all rusted together.

    I will try to get pics with my folks camera tomorrow.

    might be easier to just cut off the bolts and pound them out off of the bike. i had to do that on a mini i just picked up

    Kind of an update, I still have it but I haven't done much with it. Been busy working full time now and trying to fix my truck. Once thts done I'll get more done to this.

    I do have a 5hp Tecumseh for it for now, Still need to find the front part of the torque converter...

    Fun stuff
