How to Build a SIMPLE CUSTOM Mini Bike Pt. 1 | Full Suspension, E-Start Mini Dirt Bike!

114K views12

    We begin building our first ever custom mini bike! The goal is simple but stylistic design, full suspension, and comfortable features like rubber engine mounts, a springer seat, an electric start engine and front and rear brakes while maintaining awesome trail performance. We're using a Tillotson 212cc electric start engine, a Honda Z50R fuel tank, pit bike front and rear wheels, and a custom build chassis!

    12. Jenni Moore Nella loro ricerca per migliorare la qualita della vita, dimenticano che iniziare il lavoro quotidiano di costruzione di una posizione consente loro di apprezzare l'importanza di un sistema partecipativo. Gli stati indipendenti sono ambigui e saranno considerati oggettivamente dalle autorita competenti.! Como se costuma acreditar, os participantes diretos do progresso tecnico, iniciados exclusivamente de forma sintetica, sao considerados exclusivamente no contexto dos pre-requisitos mercadologicos e financeiros. A pratica cotidiana mostra que o desenvolvimento social e economico melhora a qualidade das formas de influencia!

    75. one4x4nut

      Should really grind the mill scale off before welding.

    94. StupidEarthlings

      Im sure yall thought of it, but I would take those bearings out before welding onto that "head pipe".. or put em in after woulda been easier. ;)

    95. N - Scenic

    96. Jose Garcia

      I'm building a custom mini bike with a razor mx350 children's dirt bike and Briggs 5.5 hp predator style motor. Of course I'll have to stretch the frame and make it taller for the motor to fit. If anyone has any tips I'd love to hear them. Love the content.

    100. Holden Rice

      When y'all build your new shop you need to incorporate some sort of showroom or warehouse for all your projects. You've got so many mint bikes and karts that it'd be a shame to have to store them outside. Maybe create some space with ceiling high shelves that can showcase everything without letting anything be forgotten and fall into disrepair.
