    Two mini's saved from Junk yard




    The one with the engine looks to be and good project bike. The frame was free. After some research the frame looks to be a RUPP by the foot pegs. Not sure about the one with the engine.

    Nice find, But I do not think either are Rupp's, The one with out a engine looks like a Alexander Reynolds bike. The other bike with a engine I,m not sure, need a better picture.

    The top picture looks like my old Cadet II (perhaps Alexander Renolds). I'm new to this site and I just posted my first comment looking for my old bike. (I think you found one just like it) Is there a front plate on it? It appears (like my old bike that) it used the sprocket as the disk for the brake (that mechanism mounts to that little plate in the left front of the rear tire)....cool find

    The top bike has many, shade tree modifications, the handle bars are so wrong, the scrub brake is a joke. The seat hmm what was he thinking. That mini is gona take much work before its done. The other one is in the blaster and has lots of potential. Think we might go with a smaller engine, maybe 2 1/2 hp. Think 6.5 would be to much.

    wow, just wow. what are the bars mounted on? a piece of sheet metal welded to the trees? and the scrub brake ....am i looking at it right that you'd have to take your foot off the left peg and reach back to actuate it??
