    Project: Atlas

    UPDATE Bike is painted blue. Friend who works for a body shop painted it for me. It looks like it just came new off the shelf. I am picking up the forks/handlebars/rims this weekend from him (painted seperately). I bought a HF engine, but going to swap it on my doodlebug for the HF blue...

    Pocket Rocket or Mini?

    I'm untrained at identifying. I see Murray written on it.. Is this a real mini or some cheap repro? The seat reminds me of a crotch rocket (no single rear shock). Thanks, Kevin - Hillsboro, OH

    Found buried in my yard

    Nooo, thank you! I never seen a bike like that before (from that decade). Being newb, I wasn't too bad at saying it looked like a Rascal (old people scooter) :smile: Maybe someone can correct me.. it looks more like a scooter that was modded to a bike? Again, great find and thanks for...

    Found buried in my yard

    It looks like one of those old people scooters modified :) Something just isn't right about that bike... could it be another bike that was modified? It looks like the bottom all the way to the back where it meets the upper part might been added. I hope someone can identify it :confused...

    Just got home with a mini

    Morning light pics. Comparing the 3rd pic to the 'Ruppster' bike, his is different than mine. The 3rd pic shows what looks to be a brake (caliper style) hole and 2 smaller holes for the mounting of the brake mech. I am an UNTRAINED person. I am trying to identify characteristics of the...

    Briggs 4HP

    Side of shroud 30212 0812-0 77032801 30 was my interpretation. It was scubbed and kinda hard to make out. Decal shows 4HP.. that is why I stated 4HP :shrug: Kevin - Hillsboro, OH

    A new citizen

    Those citizen tests are involved. People that pass them know more about USA than most Americans do. We think we know our government, but when it comes down to the brass tacks... most don't. Even now, I find myself still learning things I never knew about our government. Props to him passing...

    Make doodle bug street legal

    Ohio - BMV website has details on what/how is legal. Of course, it requires license and registration. You have to get the bike inspected/titled. It requires so much safety crap that your mini will be an eye-sore. The actual size of the mini may not be part of the DOT safety requirements...
