welcome Luke!

what happened to your #7? any pictures of it?
#7 is long gone. I bought it in 1965 used for $34 of paper route money. It looked just like the pic in the bonanza history of #1. Mine had a west bend 580 5 port go kart motor. It was bought new at california kart sales in san jose california just a few miles from the bonanza factory. It had a rear disc brake which was caliper pads on the rear sprocket. It had the original gold wheels. with the gearing high it clocked at 61 mph. what a ride for a 13 year old
