Default " Joe Type MiniBike "

Hey Everyone,
Decided since getting I would document it's reconstruction.

I was informed on OMB and FBs " minibike nation " that this bike was/is commonly referred to as " Joe MiniBike "
Maybe made at a small factory by a guy named Joe...

So far all I have done is cut two pieces of 7/8" tube at 4" long and weld those up to the frame.
I used this DIY Tube nocther It worked like a charm.
It is weird having the foot pegs this far back ( I guess that is how they did it back then).

I will update as progress is made.

That DIY tubing notcher is a handy tool. I used it last year on my Kart.

It looks like an Azusa mini-bike. It's got the same, or nearly so, dimensions and geometry.

Were you trying to identify the mini-bike or name it? The mind boggles...

It has been identified as a Joe minibike, but I think I will name it Nacho...
I will probably throw a 6 1/2 hp predator in it, since I have long since I have one laying around.
