Here's some pix of new things this week from show and not show. 99 Jeep Wrangler to work on and play with,  New Mini-bike parts to make into one,  New Harley V-Rod!  A Briggs I'm working on to put in a speedex, 10hp. OH, yeah! The blast cabinet together and tried it out. Works pretty good. The light don't work, have to fix or replace with something and sand leaks out all over in the seams, specially down by trap door. SO, guess I'll be emptying and caulking all the seams, like I had to do on my wooden one that I made.

I have the same issues with my blast cabinet. One of these days I'll get around to taking it back apart to seal it and upgrade the light.

As a PS, the Jeep and Mini are both Yellow......must be my favorite color.......Hope not!  MM's wearing into me. Think the Mini is gonna be Red like a Mini should be. Jeep will remain Yellow and rust accents! :smilewink:

Just a note today got the Tec engine carb rebuilt and works well! So that is good. Took rest of Mini apart to clean up and paint. Course gonna be Yellow and red fenders, maybe silver on wheels yet. I took a puter address off a label on fender and be darned I didn't find that company's site. They have lots of neat stuff to drive/ride.  I found the owner's man and a parts man to print off, so that was kinda neat.  I have yet to contact them (by phone only) about whether parts are really still available and how much. Looking at new brake and throttle cables, and maybe the chain guards and a seat depending on prices. If none available, cables should be easy to get from diff source. I kinda wanted to replace the wheel bearings and the front fork pivot bearings, as these are kinda sticky and not smooth. They don't list those. These seem kinda narrow and are sealed. I'm going to just poke hole in one side of them and run some light oil in them and see what happens. Gotta be better than what they are now. Have to fix the rear flat too. Think that is just the stem kinda rotten, leaks out when bending just slightly and cracks all over when you do that.

Minibike is a Chinese made "dirt bug" or "doodle bug"

Came originally with a 2.8 hp Chinese made 4 stroke that is junk. That tec is a nice upgrade for that bike. The frames are nice and solid and respond well to the 6.5 predator engine. I had one with all the billet goodies and no governor. It would top out at 55 mph and throw you on your back taking back.

If you need any parts for it www.ombwarehouse.com is a great source for parts and great people there.
