Are you looking at the air cleaner? Or the big can muffler on the fender?

The black one is a 1970 rupp black widow. It was built in Mansfield ohio.

It's mostly original parts. But motor is a new hs40 tecumseh.

I thought the black one was a Rupp. It is the muffler on the red one behind the oval air cleaner. NICE STUFF!

   when I go digging in the back of my sheds it usually ends up with a huge pile of sh&# and grease up to my elbows.  Very nice collection you have there.

That's spring fever when you end up just going in the storage shed to look.  :smilewink:

 

Now, I've got to say two things:

 

One, I didn't know you had that many sharp looking Cubs.  :thumbs: I think I forgot.  I'm impressed. 

 

Two, how in the heck do you keep your shed looking that nice?  If I dug in the back of my tractor shed... well... ya'll wouldn't want to see the pictures.

That's the only thing allowed in the shed. Tractors and minibikes. No parts. No half tractors. Nothing else. Me and dad are the only ones with the keys.

I did notice the original is missing the fenders. Dad may of taken them off for some reason....

We share the tractor collection. We pay half for each tractor and the restore. That way we can afford more tractors.

All those tractors minus the original have been taken completely apart. Same blasted and everything replaced that is even questionable with oem parts. Bolts and nuts are reused if they are good. A lot of the nuts have been replaced with stainless nylock nuts just to make it better.

The original was half restored by someone else and we never messed with it much.

In the spring I am going to pull one out and turn it in for tractor of the month

The black widow was one I lusted over as a kid. I had a red and green roadster back 5-6 years ago I bought as a pair. Both were original and in very good shape. But needed space so they were sold.... Wish I had kept one.

Being 30 I missed the minibike craze. But my dad grew up right in the middle of it. So when I turned 5 he bought me a minibike then I a ct70 and on up. I cut my teeth riding on vintage bikes. So I have a love them. There are 5 other bikes sitting around plus a slew of frames and parts. I have a 1969 rupp roadster I want to restore but the gas tank for it brings 500 bucks on ebay!

Even as an adult riding the minibikes brings a smile to my face. The black widow still runs great and pulls my rear end around at 35 mph.

The big red one has an 8hp tecumseh and will pull you down the road 45 mph and will climb a mountain. It adult sized. You can ride a wheelie on it too if you are brave! This one started out "restored" but I've ridden it so much the paint is scratched and chipped. It needs redone again but I'm not ready to park it.
