Number 1, $99.99 with coupon.

I don't use GPS for stuff unless it's really rare and they're the only ones who have it.

Yup I have the coupon, good deal! Also why don't you use GPS? Is it more expensive?

They're not the cheapest, plus they hit you on shipping & handling whereas a lot of things on that popular auction site have free S&H (for example).

You're asking the forum to find you the cheapest deals for each of those items, but you're going to have to do the legwork yourself.

Otherwise, use the forum discount (10%) and drive on.

EDIT: FIFTY BUCKS for a twist throttle?

Sorry! I didn't mean it that way. Just wanted a little help.

Do you happen to know what's good for a minibike of this size in terms of sprockets? I can't find much on the internet and i'm not very experienced.

Oh, I'm not offended. Just giving you a hard time or the brutal truth.

As to your question, are you interested in re-creating the standard Coleman bike or making it custom? And what kind of riding are you intending to do?

Where'd you get the bare frames?

Probably making it custom. 95% Off-road driving on dirt roads and in the woods. I got the frames off craigslist from a guy who bought them and pulled everything off for different projects. Frames are brand new, just painted a different color.

Also, i'm not looking for anything crazy, just a bike to ride around the shop after work. So when I say "Custom" I don't mean crazy, just a little fun.

Amazon and Ebay is where I get stuff when I have to buy. I scavenge a lot and trade a lot. If you are a fabricator, you can adapt stuff from old riding mowers, ATV's, motorcycles, or just junk.
