A Minibike and a Motorcycle Car I Built

These pictures show a minibike and a motorcycle car which I built. The minibike was built about 22 years ago and the motorcycle car was built five years later.

The minibike is made with a 1? HP, 2-cycle motor which was purchased from an Army surplus store. I took it to the County Fair and won first prize. One of the other entrants remarked that if that little old minibike had not been entered he would have won first prize with his entry. The bike is 16 inches tall, has eight inch wheels with tires, and overall length is 30 inches. I can ride this minibike and I am six feet tall!

About 15 years ago I built a motorcycle car from two Model 70 Honda motorcycles. I built a frame and tied them together. I moved one handlebar over to the right side of the dash. It will seat two people. My daughter upholstered the seats and the dash with leather-like material.
