Ditto, ditto, ditto. Some of us had a little money cobbled together from our paper routes and bagging jobs at the Wegman's, -- enough cash to get the necessary parts/hardware to convert our stingray bicycles to mini-bikes by simply stripping the bike frames down to nothing but frame and handle bars, ubolting a a piece of plywood above where the crank once was to which we'd bolt a 3hp side shaft Briggs Reel lawnmower motor. 2 go cart wheels and voila. A mini-bike. They were the bomb when we young. I remember not having much money and support of the parents for those sort of endeavors and having to be resourceful.
