My next mini bike restoration project

Hi guys after restoring a 8" wheel mini MV AGUSTA mini bike a few years ago I have been keeping my eye out for of these little bikes

There are plenty of the little Indian scramblers around and then I can across this little beauty it uses the same 49cc little Franco moto Moroni engine and it's the same 8" wheel model the tank decal states its a Omer Tango mini chopper all original matching numbers one thing missing is the front mudguard

At the moment I'm debating colour scheme ect do I chrome it out like a mini harley or go all mate black with very Bling red wheels and tank have I see

I'll keep updates and pics as I go some one will want this to sit next to there full size hog lol

Speaking of minibikes. This is the minibike I have wanted since I was six years old. I finally got it when I was about sixty. They said it was only a passing phase. LOL!

USA Motors / Westbend 820 two stroke
Yes, it hauls ass!!

I got it over the net. I got the frame and wheels then after some searching I found the engine on the net as well.
Nothing like the 50s era go karts and mini bikes.
Back then it was a great way for a kid to learn about engines and mechanics. That good old responsibility of ownership too.
When I was growing up my family did ok but having extra money was rare. I did have a go kart and then a mini bike later on after wheeling and dealing, working pulling weeds and stuff.
Then I got stopped by a cop that gave me a ticket and I had to go see a judge who told me he would throw my ass in jail if I was caught riding it on the street again. I was riding it in a new housing complex that had no houses yet only streets. No people and no cars except for the cop of course. I guess he did not have anything else to do except scare the crap out of a little kid. I have disliked police ever since. Nice going Officer Dick Head!
