I believe the year was 1971.
That thing look sooooo beautiful.
Looks just like mine did! Memories. Except mine was used. With a rusted tank and a new 5HP engine. Used epoxy on the tank to fix the holes and new bearings in the wheels to help it steer and rode the tires off from it. I mess those days...
I remember back in the early 70's when I was lusting after any kind of bike that you didn't have to pedal. There was a PM article or comparo of about a dozen minibikes and I recall the Rupp being represented. Maybe someone here has a stack of old PM's, seems like it was around '71 to '73.
My friend got a pressed frame Suzuki 50cc street bike. We made it into a "scrambler" because he wasn't old enough to ride legal on the street. I learned to ride m/c's on that bike...
Cool, I used to own a Chris Cycle when I was a kid...back in the early 70's probably. It was a beauty and wish I held on to it...but one does not think well at that age.
After that bike I got a Honda 70, but it was just not the same aesthetically.
If you have any photos or sources of info for the Chris Cycle please send them to me.

That looks like a "Fox" minibike that I got from Santa, back in the '60s.....???? (came with no fenders, no lights, 2.25 Tecumseh motor, and rear "paddle" friction brake.)
