We bought a 1970s Trail Horse GTO mini bike on Facebook Marketplace to try to get running and flip for profit, and we got burned big time! The vintage mini bike revealed usual amounts of jank while we were going over it- hose clamps on the brake cables, a jerry rigged throttle assembly, and chunky oil, but the real issue was when we started it up!
The mini bike hadn’t run in 20 years, and we think we know why it was parked. When we started up this vintage Tecumseh HS50, it made the worst knocking noise! We rode it anyway, and we cruised and raced it with two other vintage mini bikes. The ride ended… badly. Check it out!
