    Hillarious ad on Craigslist

    Have another funny ad. This is a nice truck if anyone wants one and likes Cars (the Disney movie) haha. This one is from the Marketplace. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1051637649230210/?mibextid=3fSFeF

    Brake caliper to fit Cat Hpe Muskin???

    So I looked into this some more and it looks like Cat did use different brake setups on the Slingshots so I was mostly wrong. I found an ad of what I believe was the very first Slingshot (maybe from 1970). I believe the orange "X3" decal was the very first production of the Slingshots. They...

    Brake caliper to fit Cat Hpe Muskin???

    The Cat Slingshot didn't have a disc brake. It originally had a drum brake that went inside the sprocket and mounted on the frame. That's probably why the disc brake didn't work for you because it wasn't designed for one to go on it.

    HPE Muskin Cat minibike factory and tooling.

    If you can't find a set from anyone on this site if you are patient enough some will more than likely come up on eBay eventually. Cat handlebars were the exact same on all models except the Choppers like the Duster or Hustler so the handlebars you need aren't too hard to come by.

    Seat Dimensions Thread

    Hey everyone! I wanted to make this thread with the intention of posting measurements/dimensions of seats used on some old mini bikes. I thought this would be a great reference thread for anyone that is looking to make or recreate a seat since many didn't survive on mini bikes over the years...

    Cat kickstand

    Me and Skipp talked about that sissy bar but I didn't end up getting it because I was unsure if it was an actual Cat part or one someone tried to fabricate. The tubing was 5/8" on his while Cat sissy bars used 1/2" tubing. I measured a Slingshot sissy bar I had to confirm that. The space between...

    Weather/ storms

    Here in Tennessee weather can change from warm to freezing cold in a heartbeat. Last Thursday we had a high of about 60 degrees. Now it's about 0 degrees and a lot of snow and ice!

    HPE Muskin Cat minibike factory and tooling.

    The first digit(s) indicate the year of your Cat. A "9" means your bike is a 1969 Cat 400X, the first year the were sold.

    HPE Muskin Cat minibike factory and tooling.

    Candy apple red is the original color of the 400X so you have an original paint color. Could you share some photos of your bike? Would really like to see what you have! If any patents still exist for Cat minibikes I'm sure they're long forgotten about and would probably require a tedious...

    HPE Muskin Cat minibike factory and tooling.

    I'd assume you're wanting to know the exact dimensions of every part on your Cat 400X or just the frame? I don't know any of those dimensions nor how HPE Muskin manufactured them almost no information is available about their manufacturing processes. A few years back I was able to contact a...

    Cat Chain Guard

    Amazing progress & great samples! You might could take your sample images and find a color palette or maybe an online book of colors and find a color that matches. EDIT: I found a site that you could try: https://www.color-meanings.com/list-of-colors-names-hex-codes/

    FIBERGLASS Cat Chainguard & FIBERGLASS Switch Plate

    And to add on to that honestly if I put an item for sale and the first thing you do is come and complain about the price guess what? That's an automatic deal breaker for me and you're not getting the part nor will I be open to offers after such a comment. If others are willing to buy it for the...

    FIBERGLASS Cat Chainguard & FIBERGLASS Switch Plate

    No the originals are a one wire toggle switch. They would ground on the engine motor plate by connecting to a wire coming from the coil I'm pretty sure. Here's a photo I have of an original toggle switch...

    FIBERGLASS Cat Chainguard & FIBERGLASS Switch Plate

    Oh yeah and I forgot to mention that Cat actually made two different switch plates as well a large one and small one so it depends on what bike @MiniBike Paul has that will determine what switch plate he will need. I don't know of any small plates that are available right now.

    FIBERGLASS Cat Chainguard & FIBERGLASS Switch Plate

    Yep that's also another option for @MiniBike Paul. Just realize those are reproduced switch plates and not originals. He said he tried looking but couldn't find "metal originals" so I don't know if he's looking for a genuine Cat plate or just one to use. If he doesn't need an original Cat...

    Requesting the amount not sending it??

    I'm not entirely sure because it's been a while since I had a request before but I would guess they would have to accept it and then choose where the money will come from (their funds, card, etc.) and then it will get sent.

    Requesting the amount not sending it??

    I believe money requests on PayPal are almost always the same as paying with "Friends & Family" in that if you send the money from the request it cannot be refunded. However, I think the person on the receiving end needs to confirm how the money will get delivered, from where it's coming from...
