    New old guy here...

    Hey Y'all...Just joined today...I was big into minibikes the first time around in the early 70's. I grew up in Livonia, Michigan, a couple miles away from where the Micreana Bros built the Lil Indians...It seems like almost every guy in the neighborhood...and I mean everybody but the serious geeks (that couldn't yet drive)- had either a Rupp or a Lil Indian..there was field at the end of my street where older guys..maybe 25 or 30 of them at a time, played soccer on minibikes and there were several sweet tracks in an open field where all kinds of guys showed up to ride & race every decent day.

    Anyway, I saw a nice Lil Indian online the other day and went and bought it. I can't tell you why other than it reminded me of a really good time in my life.
