I had dinner at Moms last night and we dug out the old photo albums.

What a trip down memory lane!!

Mom and Dad bought my brother and I this CT70 brand new, these pictures mostly were taken on the first day we had it. One of my first rides I slipped back off the seat, pinned the gas,bounced off my parents Datsun, bounced off my grandparents Cutlass, then hit the ground. You will notice all the. Linkers and mirrors are missing from the afternoon pictures. :-(

The bonus picture is my first kiss, also the same girl riding double on our mini bike.

My father and his friends in about 1964 or 65 on their mini bikes that they built in high school welding shop class. My father is the one on the bike pointing left. Years later my grandfather bought me a similar bike used out of the newspaper with no engine and my father and I put a 3.5 HP Briggs generator on it. It kept tossing the chain but gave me many years of enjoyment.

When I was in about fifth grade I'd mount a B & S motor on a bicycle frame and hook up a pulley to a tire with direct drive, no centrifugal clutch. On a rare occasion, I'd get it going somehow by pushing the darn thing and drive a block or so. Yes, no brakes at all and I'd reach down to the engine to give it gas......

We had them here on Long Island Tim, we used to call them "Motobikes". Stingray frames worked the best. What it took to build one

1. Good Stingray frame
2. 1.5' piece of 2x2' Angle iron drilled and bolted to the frame uprights
3. 3hp B+S, or Tecumseh that you would mount on the angle iron via 2 of the 4 mounting holes, minibike throttle
4. Mount a large pulley (usually pulled the out of old Dryers) on the rear wheel, with small pieces of wood/metal to hold the bolts going through the spokes (yikes)
5. Fan belt pulley on the engine

When I tell you these death traps hauled ass, big understatement. But a ton of fun
