Ike bought a chopper mini bike frame from the mid 1970s for $20 while buying another car! Today we pair the mini bike chassis with a $20 yard sale Briggs and …January 15, 2020 at 10:13 am #108400Bullet Bikes _
Does anybody here know much about these Briggs flatheads, such as the last year they were made and the model years to look out for, on my local market I found a 3 horse 127cc that look to be from the early to mid 80s for 65$ does anybody know if it’s a good buy? Thanks to anybody that can provide infoJanuary 15, 2020 at 10:13 am #108401Paul C. Reilly
Only you guys find $20 frames that are rollers. And $20 motors. $150 puglys and 3 Coleman mini bikes complete for $450. I am a deal finding master and I don't find those deals.January 15, 2020 at 10:13 am #108402shartne

Had one as a kid in the 70's got it at sears for $110 I been a Briggs builder since I was a kid, just got an 90's variable HP (3 -10) 206 cc industrial. it has a quick change governor (still have to open the case but no clips just slides out) and with the gov. removed it's 10 hp bullet rod and piston bore is 4.10 in (bigger then a stock 350 ci) and runs up to 8k rpm Going to add NOS this summer, yea it's on a go kart and had it up to 70mph but we need a rack and pinion steering real bad.

Do a race cam on the budget but welding on the cam lobe. I saw this on another episode and I think it would be cool on this thing.January 15, 2020 at 10:13 am #108407TheBladerules1
would you ever be up to a build like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spZtQK37xKw just dont use car tires use ones meant for a bike when they turn yes lots of build your own parts but that the fun part in know you don't have a good lath to turn your own parts but i guess that's where it will be fine just for testing purposes and see how it goesJanuary 15, 2020 at 10:13 am #108408Irving Cobian
love these old school briggs engines! this makes me want to rebuild my Deathtrap! a stripped down 50cc scooter with a briggs, turned into a trike with a Toro lawnmower rear end and no seat, it was fun hahaJanuary 15, 2020 at 10:13 am #108409Casey Phalen

So sick!January 15, 2020 at 10:13 am #108417Timothy Milam
Yes definitely a sissy bar, kids nowadays don't know what was cool for back then. We probably shouldn't tell them about adding pegs to front axle either, are using black pipe threaded into exhaust. Then adding a pipe reducer to increase exhaust up to next size to make it pop.
Nah, they'll probably fall off, and burn themselves, and get their pants leg hung up in chain too if we did. lol Plus tell their moms on us if we did, then their dads be at our houses wanting our folks to pay for their ripped jeans too I betJanuary 15, 2020 at 10:13 am #108418BabydoomXx
