117K views20

    Our custom mini bike build is finished! We built a full suspension mini bike from scratch in just a few days, and it's ready for a ride! In today's episode, we build a swing arm, build brackets for our front brake, mount the fuel tank, seat, engine, exhaust, and everything else we need to ride this 212cc mini bike!

    Shock: the shock we ordered and set the bike up for was very poor quality. When we find a new one, this link will be updated in a newer episode.
    We used a fuel tank from a Honda Z50R, we used 1.25" tubing 0.083 wall for the upper frame rail, and 1" tubing 0.083 wall for the rest of the chassis (the build isn't completed yet but we wished we had used a slightly thinner wall tubing).

      This is probably a weird question but do bikes of this size and age come with titles?

    2. Warren Krywko

      Falling rate suspension is the issue. You need rising rate.falling rate means is gets softer as it compresses.

    3. The Old Fart's Channel

      Name it Fudpucker.

    4. Dragon Rider

      I use semi truck mud flaps to absorb the shock on my mini bikes and go-karts. They cheap to

    5. dblizz68

      Matching the color of your C-10? Why not call it a Chev-mini or C-teni-mini? And yes, we need a build off between you guys.

    6. Eddy

      They definitely need to make a cafe racer

    7. Hebu The Lone Wolf

      2 shocks one both sides like on Honda Monkey could work. makes it stiffer and u can angle them better. the current angle is bad. it should be on that angle when its compressed and not when its resting. the angle when its compressed is extremely taxing on it and wont last long, most likely the shaft is gonna bed or at worst case snap in half

    8. Mannequins Mazzara

      19:10 smoke?

    9. fudgun

      Should be able to use shorter chunks of rubber with washers. That way you get SOME vibration dampening without having to worry about the chain so much.

    10. Brandon Hewitt

      You guys really should've left the swing arm long. I thought it looked cooler & it would've rode alot better. Cool build

    11. Edward Weisenburg

      Attention k Mart shoppers there's a sprung spring in isle one !!!! LoL ๐Ÿ˜‚

      I would love to see a big wheel mini bike/ 3 wheeler to mini bike

    20. Bob Mal

      One of your future video projects should be to build a mini bike lift table for building future bikes. Your plasma cutter could make some cool parts for it and it would not only benefit you guys but also subscribers who want to build the same thing and get off the shop floor.

    21. Moldy mold


    22. SportbikerNZ

      Sweet project!

    23. aalecustom

      it looks sku good boys. But you must have moved the rear spring. The angle of it is completely wrong, it should be more perpendicular to the rear swingarm when pressed together. it will make it stronger when compressed.

    24. Chris Ross

      If theres to much engine movement from the rubber mounting beneath, could you put a couple rubber mounts on the top also? (Factory tank mounts)

    25. Diji


    26. DSR

      Really like the videos. Just hard to find 30 minutes to watch a video

      It's a baby cafe racer. Kinda like a rat rod version of a mini bike also ๐Ÿ˜‚. Rat Racer

    41. MIKE Lavalley

      Maybe aa ltl shorter rubber engine mount made from stiffer rubber,and it might take care of the "Dancing Tillotson"...maybe? Lol. B Safe Guys.

    42. Ron De Joux

      KAREN , I think.

    43. Carson Hendee

      What battery did you use for this?

    44. Isapongo ?

    45. Oliver Tait

      Hey guys I am really interested in the z 50 in the background I am wondering if it could be for sale.๐Ÿ˜

    46. Frederick Giordiano

      They have discovered why most dirtbikes have a shock linkage.

    47. dan marshall

      Name it Tonda. Honda/Tillison

    48. LB Venter


    49. Kevin

      Bob...just Bob

    50. Tyler Shea

      Should have named it Karen

    51. Giovanni Tiziani

      call it Antonello!

    52. Brad Taylor

      The shock not only has to support the weight of the rider, but also half the weight of the mini-bike and the mass forces imposed on the shock during compression. I'd be surprised if that little shock will work. We will see.

    53. Daniel Darch

      You should call it the mini monster Keep up the good work guys

    54. Leon Battersby

      Call it frank after Frankenstein

    55. watahyahknow

      nicest would be to put the axle shaft for the rear fork through the back pulley of the cvt drive , that way the chain coming off the pulley goes straight to the rearwheel and shouldnt slack with the suspension all the way in , though youre way should work too m my way can put the wheels closer together it will mount the motor solidly to the frame though donna you know like this woman i know ...... the one with all the nice features .......

    56. Matthew Rogers

      name it the dude

    57. John Hill

      Great video guys. This Old Man loving it. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

    58. Elliott Mason

    61. Damien Catapano

      Definitely name it Scrappy

    62. Deven Wood

      the rat!

    63. Frank G

      Are those 30 series torque converters strong enough for 15hp, I know the spec says it isn't but I've seen you putting them on some beasty engines? Realistically?

    64. Jason Crow

      Name it The bigger foot

    65. Richard Medina

      Hey guys! From one fabricator to the next... thats a nice build. Im sorta doing the same thing you guys are, in building something outa nothing, and wonder... would you ever share the work load? Notice i didnt say "Limelight" thats because im not the gatta be on cam kind of guy... but i am the gatta buiild kind of guy... uh example... wouldnt a cantilever work on that pesky rear suspention? It would eliminate alot of need from the spring by placing the initial force in the linkage...Also it wouldnt take up much more space... actually it wouldnt take up any more than what you already are! And, dont you guys think that a top motor mount is necessary?

    66. Nick W

      The angle on that shock lol, come on guys, youโ€™re way better than that, youโ€™d be ideal with like a CRF 110 rear shock and the right angle

    67. richToFEn1337

      @CarsandCameras you should look at a shock linkage like what dirtbikes have for that rear shock there isnt much space to lay the shock down more without giving it that stinkbug stance and a new better air filled shock wouldn't hurt either after the better shock that frame will be able to take on crfs and xr80s

    68. Rougaroux

      I think the name of the mini bike needs to be Hamarabi or HammerRobby. ๐Ÿ˜† Yโ€™all know ITโ€™LL BE FINE

    69. jay six

      Name it monda...

    70. Tyler N

      That spring/shock setup is way too small. Shoulda noticed that issue as soon as you got it.

    71. Matt Craft

      I love the videos yall make. But I can not stand behind Go Power Sports. They dont give a rat's a$$ about customer service or fixing there mistakes or hell replacing a part that is faulty from the manufacturer.

    72. Michael VanGundy


    73. nealp06

      So when Ike starts to tac weld off the battery my iPad fell. Made me jump, lol. The battery knocked it over.

    74. Kennie Lengyel

      I thought maybe u can drill a bigger hole in rubber engine mounts and slide a pipe through that's slightly shorter than rubber mount, so you still have some squeeze to it

    75. PW

      Do you got a link for the rubber mounts?

    76. Brody Jo

      Just buy a Honda 70 shock

    77. OneN Only

      Never seen this man with a full beard and I feel like Iโ€™ve watched quite a bit of videos wtf you lost 15 years without a beatd

    78. mike n

      Homemade street legal would be nice

    79. Matt Mkamp

      you guys should get an old dirt bike like xr 200 and put an 420cc and 40 series on it would love to see how it performs

    81. Dave Z

      Call it Rooster. You need a chicken in the yard.

    82. Renard Shotter

      Do a drop seat 4โ€ cut the back bone and drop it no fear ๐Ÿฅบ

    83. The Trikester

      As to the rubber motor mounts. how do you think they would do on a belt driven instead of a chain driven. I have an Owosso Explorer that has a torque converter system built into the frame kinda. Trying to get a nice smooth ride for the road. Any comments to help. Thanks.

    84. Brian James

      How about Shonda?? Rhonda andShonda

    85. ian builds

      mine's got a trans

    90. Chico

      the suspension must have a second nut to lock

    91. Henry Escat

      I think that spring is TOO SHORT & TOO SOFT!

    92. Henry Escat

      I would cut like 2" off the handlebar length. It makes riding past trees safer.

    93. Henry Escat

      I would totally use those springs.. Just lower the spring mounts a little. It will lower when you sit on it.

    94. rippen outdoors

      u should call it they franken bike

    95. Xander Blade

      Bent spring time

    96. grunt

      I'd call it the hondillac, thing is lux

    97. grunt


    98. David Simpson

      i think for the mounts to work you might wont a couple of the top of the engine also after all old cars had the engine and gearbox mounted with similer mounts

      Come on guys. Using old car battery as a block and welding next to it. Safety 1st. Have you ever seen a battery explosion. Real bad. You could go blind or die. Thumbs down for safety.
