We Bought 6 Vintage Mini Bikes for CHEAP! | Will They Run & Ride??

165K views17

    Ike bought six vintage mini bikes! Two Honda Z50Rs, one hardtail Honda Z50 (an early model, around 1970-1971), one Scat Cat mini bike, and two unknown vintage mini bikes- one chopper, and one bobber. All six of these mini bikes (plus other parts) cost us $1,000. Not a bad deal! Of course all of these old mini motos need work. In today's episode, we work on getting the two Honda Z50Rs running, and we take one of them for a lap around the CarsandCameras Grand Prix!

      Those mini bikes are trick!!!! What a honey hole!!!!!

    2. Grant Koeller

      Running it with dry rusty chain, and exhaust sticking out is foolish. Use wire brush for chain, soaking in kerosene.

    3. Grant Koeller

      The exhaust could break off!! Bolt that exhaust. Stroke up a deal,ha ha !!!!!

    4. mhercaps caps

      wish i had the frame and wheels for free..

    5. Balin Weatherhead

      This is probably a weird question but but did bikes of this size and from this time period come with titles?

    6. G R Dray

    16. Brad Huey

      Everytime I go on there website most of the stuff is out of stock.

    17. King Ave Garage

      Build Break Repeat did a build "cafe racer" on an old school 5 spoke, that John likes. Turned out pretty good.

    18. Phroden Dekia

      I had a chinese rotovator with that same style of switch and was backwards as well.

    19. Donald Romero

      I hate Ike's beard... he looks much better without it...

    20. Dragon Rider

      Old school gasket. Do it all the time. I use cereal boxes

    21. Dragon Rider

      The orange bike carb is a pz22. Love them put them on all my Chinese ATVs 50-125cc. It's the pz19 you don't want, the round bowl one's

    22. Jeffrey Awesome

      You just solved all of my problems

    23. James Armstrong

      That carb looks the same as the one on my Honda XR80. So that carb is probably off an 80cc

    24. Lon

      The Z50 with the side exhaust would be a great start for the makings of a "Sidehack" monkey bike!

    25. Tru North Rough Neck

      Watching you inspires me to start my own channel

    26. Goozer

      That 50R 🤤

    27. Colten Chambers

      The mini bike with the cool wheels is called a thunderbird Phoenix.

    28. Nolan Mans

      Barstool Racer

    29. john beach

      The exhaust on the orange bike makes it look like it needs a side car. Wanna build a mini side car annnnnnd maybe add another engine for the cart?

    30. john beach


    31. Lee Lane

      The five spoke is a Bird Engineering bike probably a Thunder Bird cool bike a little small.

    32. Bradley Arnold

      The one with holes in the wheels you can I’m pretty sure you can buy them at Gault Powersports

    33. Titus Wilson

      I cant wait either to see all these running

    34. News Now Permian Basin

      I had a Scattcat AYT660 as a kid. That one is a 1976 model. The best motor to put on it is a Briggs and Stratton 5hp edger motor with a centrifugal clutch. You cannot put a foot starter on it. It will not clear the frame. You're going to need to use a pull starter like the one that comes with the Briggs and Stratton.

    35. A Resident

      where can i get the glasses you're wearing

    36. James David

      I could watch these like episodes on netflix

    42. Mark Alsendi

      Put a turbo on a go kart please

    43. Kale G.

    44. Sir LurksaLot

      Seems like you guy's track is always muddy

    45. Brett Craig

      The carb on the 125 is a copy of the carbs that came on the early 70's Hondas. I have a '72 Sl125 that is the same design.

    46. Brennan Hancock

      That blue bike is a rare Grand Prix Deckson mini bike, made in Australia, my brother has one, from🇨🇦

    47. Farmer Fpv

    97. AssistanttoRM

      How do you guys prevent the chain from hopping off? Every time I’m off-road or hit a small bump or try and drive the chain flys off? No matter if I use a clutch or TC. 1in live axle, 13s, stock predator gov removed, s30 TC, 35 chain
