I hear ya.... Got my first Minibike from a neighbor for, like, $30. bucks.
I went everywhere on that thing. Man.... I miss those days so much, where you could buy small engines at yard sales an stuff. Now it's all plastic crap; no matter.
Here's one of my Bikes I Resurrected a couple of years ago.
You'll get a kick out of it!
