When I was 10 years old, I drooled over these things daily. I remember looking in the sales flyers and trying to find one for less than $100 because $110 was just too much!!

Cool Tbird. I've been looking for a Rupp that is decent. Any model. Most people seem to part-them out tho. Hard to find a non-restored one. Or a Kawasaki Coyote.

Ya the bonanza's and rupps are the more sought after bikes. I had a bonanza that was all torn apart, unrestored with no motor and I sold it for $600.

Back in the day, one friend had a 5hp Rupp... one had a 90cc Benelli, (bought from Montgomery Wards ) and one had a 50cc Honda,
All of those bikes were crazy/fun to ride! The Rupp was strong, The Honda was fun just shifting gears!
and the Benelli was almost too fast for being as tiny as it was!

I wanted a mini bike, but my dad insisted on keeping me on 4 wheels, so he built me a go-cart!
it wasn't fast with a 3hp B&S engine, but still fun!

WOW, talk about a flashback! Had a friend with a Benelli. He'd do a wheelie for a mile, while dragging his feet...he went thru alot of shoes Not many had mini bikes, mostly small motorcycles. The craziest one's where the go carts with chain saw engines
