good day , just a heads up on a deal my way. on richmond va craigslist is a cat 400x if im not mistaken for sale as a best offer, and the guy does not know what he even has, hope its helpful, thought id let the group know , thanks Richard
You have some beautifully restored bikes! All the pictures and paint code information should really help me get my Cat looking new again.
The one part that I'd like to get original looking as possible are the wheels. I can't tell if they are chromed or painted, or some combination of both. If you have a close up picture that would be great!
And did you do the painting of the frame yourself? I have not painted anything with anything but a rattle can... Any advice there?
thankyou . i guess its no big deal. i got a cool mini, and thank goodness because i almost bought a freaking doodle bug. but i have to say again that one of yours is one very cool looking cat. love to find one like that to rework.cats just seem to be to be a much stronger design than any other.thats why i think il be sticking with them. thanks again.
thankyou sir. im still trying to get use to this site, old fart here and computers are a bit confussing to me. i seen i think it was you answering another question by someone else about a simular thing. but there is nothing there.and it was factory paint i took off , and i used a nylon wheel to strip with like i always have because they dont harm metal at all just removes paint. i even used a magnifing lens to be triple sure and i found nothing. because the place you said was the first place i looked. what do you think happened?
Good day sir. once again thanks for letting me in your group!. i posted a ? the other night but i got no response yet, thats cool, but im sure you would know the answer if you have the time.by the way that is one awsome looking mini bike you have on your page. its a sling shot i think. my next project is foresure going to be one of those.
thankyou very much. new here and it will take me some time to get use to this site. not really sure how things work on here , but learning. im a 36 year go kart restorer always wanted a mini bike but some how always ended up with go karts, go figure lol. i recently got my first mini bike a real barn find, its a cat EL400. hope i can become a member of your group. thanks again
