There is a severe housing...

    1970s coalman mini bikes and new coalman mini bike share one detail in common.

    I forgot to mention The sprocket in the picture that I bought was an aftermarket oversized sprocket made for a coalman, it has more teeth than an origenal. An OEM origenal may be made differently.

    1970s coalman mini bikes and new coalman mini bike share one detail in common.

    I have one of the 1970s coalman mini bikes and ive been searching for a larger sprocket option since I don't have the origenal motorcycle like motor. I plan on using a highly modified briggs inteck 206 over head valve motor. The old sprocket this bike has would be way to small to provide the...

    The governor keeps the motor at a safe rpm, some governors do have a bit of ajustment avalable but increasing beyond this provided limit blows up the motor.

    Hear is what I did with one of these, this started life at that same bike. The Auranthetic Chargers must have sold somewhat well because they pop up every now and then. I can name many rarer brands. I have seen 3 of these in person; Mine, another gass converted one with a big block and a...

    Mini bikes on dirt bike trails , an Interesting idea I mignt persue soon.

    I'm not sure what type of regestration is required but I do beleve its an ORV regestration. ( a regestration for off road use only) I may have some issues getting regestrations due to the bikes not having vin numbers, I may have to apply at the dmv to get vin numbers. The next hardest part will...

    Mini bikes on dirt bike trails , an Interesting idea I mignt persue soon.

My bikes are fast with good power and...

    Freak-Bikes, Homemades, Customs, Frankenbikes & Oddballs

    That motor would be overkill for a go kart let alone a bike. I mean that bike would be scarry in stock form and if you modified the motor (billet rods billet flywheel and reground cam) It would be on par with a drag bike.

    With that wheel you could ditch the crappy scrub brake for a far supirior rupp drumb setup but it might take some modification to work in that frame.

    Rupp Roadster2 - ReMod

    so what is wrong with the old motor? is it just not running or is it smoking? missing parts? black widdow motorsports now carries the 20 over piston for the hs40 motor and dyno cams can re boar the block for you.

    How fast is your mini bike

    also if an entry fee is charged you can save up the money to re pave a section of worse pavement for the drag bike later. so the event without the drag bike funds the return of the drag bikes win win. considering there are no drags now anyways yourn not loosing anything buy trying this idea.

    How fast is your mini bike

    The problem isnt the location, they are being to picky about the pavement. Gomas has been offerd as a location but they claimed the pavement was to rough. Its not! that place is smooth. The pavement is irrelevent to 90 percent of the participents, they could do this on dirt for all they care...
