    *** Pennsylvania Manufactured Minibikes ***

    hello mb1a, There was at least one manufacturer of minibikes here in Pa. I believe the company was located somewhere near Lewistown, Pa. AJaxMini (OldMiniBikes member) was telling me one time about it. I don't remember the name but he's familiar with them. Not sure if he gets on the board anymore...

    Fox Campus Progress Update

    What a surprise to see a couple of my old Fox Campus posts pop up again. I haven't worked on the Foxes since January of this year. I've had some serious health issues crop up unexpectedly and right now I'm dealing with those. Honestly don't know if I will ever be able to finish the Foxes...

    What is this worth?

    Right on cheezy !! When you want to know the value of something you usually go to an appraiser. An appraiser will give you an "approximate value" based on what he has seen other items like yours go for at recent auctions. Since we don't have any certified mini bike appraisers that I'm aware...

    New member first mini (FOX?)

    Markus, I agree with you that this bike originally had the full one piece seat pan / cowling. The battery tray located forward of the seat is a dead give away that the original motor was a Briggs. Either 3,4,or 5hp. However, I am going to throw my two cents in regarding the frame and the...

    An alternative to crimping fork tube ends

    CarPlay, Great idea welding nuts to the fork ends. Makes for a clean and professional appearance. And, if one of the rod end bearings ever does go bad it makes it a snap to replace. I like a person who plans ahead. Ogy

    Differance between Briggs model 80202 and 80212t

    JJt, The only difference IS the four mounting holes. They were used for mounting an assortment of accessories like gear reducers, chainguards, etc. Other than the four holes, the two motors are the same. Ogy

    What the hell did I get myself into?

    Fttam, The answer to your question lies in the second paragraph of your thread. Quote: "I thought I'd see if I could find an old Rupp like the one I once had as a kid and maybe fix it up". Just a word of caution though. I said the very same thing about a Fox Campus bike eleven years ago...

    Funky Fox Front Forks 1964 GoKart catalog

    Good info. Markus, It does look like they tried using a cast aluminum axle holder and what appears to be a set of springs immediately above them. I would imagine that the original set of springs located beneath the rubber boots were still in use. Not sure why a second set of springs would be...

    Is this taco worth restoring?

    In situations like this the question should have been...."How much do you think it will cost me to restore this bike"? Once our members have weighed in with their estimates; then "HE" and only "HE" can determine whether it will be worth it. Ogy

    Cleaning inside rusted forks?

    Hello Runner, If the crimped end doesn't leak I'd stand the handlebars and forks upright and fill the entire tube with "evaporust". It does a wonderful job of dissolving rust. If the crimp leaks you can temporarily seal it with RTV silicone or something similar. My forks were open at both...

    Rarest Fox Campus Bike

    That's the one Tom. I've been working with Fox Campus bikes since 1963 and I've never seen one with blue fenders, etc. I sometimes wonder if maybe they took some liberties with their advertising and just showed a blue fendered one. But I can't imagine why they would advertise one if they...
