    Those are not the correct brake handles and as far as the clutch goes let it soak in pb blaster a few days and I usually work them off from the backside and sometimes they flat gust don't come off and you either ruin the clutch or if the motor was junk I've cut the crank and done it that way and as far as the foot pegs the black ones on omb are correct for the bike.

    So, the remains of the original red peg rubbers should not be there? strange :)

    I may just leave the clutch on for now, if it's that hard to get off.

    The throttle cable wasn't like present day cables. It was a lawn mower throttle with no return spring.

    sure would like to see a high resolution scan of that one! :)

    The throttle also works backwards, compared to most old mini bikes?

    Here is a close up of the correct brake levers and throttle. Notice the cable is pushed not pulled like Richard said

    Interesting...in the blue Action brochure above, I can see the two bolt clamps on the levers, just like mine has. My guess is that they sourced parts from several different places over the years. I see no evidence on mine that the levers were ever changed. I also noticed that the footpegs on the scooter in the brochures are light colored, as mine are...not black.

    Fortunately I'm working on a $100 bike, not a $10,000 bike, so it's not quite the end of the world if either I get it wrong, or someone thinks I got it wrong.

    Look closer at those handles the strap at the top and bolt at the bottom so only one bolt per handle.

    I see two on the pic in the flyer...but since I can't find any like that to buy, I'll probably just get some of the generic replacements. No biggie.

    Anyways, my new used engine shroud/starter came in the mail today, so I put it on, and no spark, like I expected. made a wrench for the flywheel nut thingy, pulled the flywheel, filed the points and adjusted them, and soldered the coil wire back on (it seemed loose and corroded). I finally saw a little glimmer of spark from the end of the plug wire, so I put it all back together. put some gas in it, gas drips out the carb, of course. But after a few pulls, it fired up. yay.

    I need to put one of the chains back on, then I can see if it will move under it's own power.

    I also put a kill switch on it....I wonder what they had originally? this one had an old doorbell button kind of dangling from some old wire.

    The clutch sticks in the "go fast" position, which makes riding a bit exciting. The throttle seems to work, more or less. The brakes work, more or less. The carb needs work. The kill switch works.

    hmmmm....I was poking around the internets, and found this thread

    http://www.oldminibikes.com/forum/wh...ification.html

    that shows what appear to be the same brake handles mine has. Interesting.
