old school minis

Recommended Posts

I've built several for my kids because I can't justify spending $500-1000 on little kid toys. if they were racing, that would be different. I rebuilt an old Montgomery Wards mini for my daughter several years ago, and recently acquired a no-name for my sons. Both of these have full suspension, too, so thats a plus. Anyone else run the old minis with a Briggs & Stratton or Tecumseh?

I have a Tote Gote...it came with a Briggs 4hp but instead of refurbishing that I just put a HF 6hp Honda clone on it

I see plenty of the Chinese minis out there, as well as the good ones, but never see the old-school kind anymore. Everytime we take ours out, we get compliments on it. Shoot, if it runs and looks good, I don't care how old it is. Riding is riding, especially on a budget.

Cool that you still use your Tote. I had a 2.5hp Briggs on my daughters mini, and a 5hp on my son's. Its amazing where you can go on such low power.
