    must be a theme....i bought a trail horse off a supposed member here....traveled 4 hour one way to pick up....all new parts ready to go....it had copper water line for wheel spacers...no float or needle in carb....nipple valves for sprocket spacers....axle for neck bolt....broken clutch...7/8 throttle beat on 1 inch bars....list goes on....my fault for being in a hurry to get back on road....be careful

    Sorry about your bad luck Skipp.
    I've always found OMB to be the last bastion of sanity in the mini bike world. Check Mini Bike Nation and you will know what I mean.

    I was entertained with the seller talking 90% complete while were looking at it ... I could clearly see it was junk ... I just wanted the front end and I am happy ... thought it would be fun to share it with my friends here ...
