A two-wheeled toy for a change – this fun little 1970 Rupp Roadster minibike, courtesy of Bob & Linda S.

This future pit bike is going to need a complete restoration, but it is an excellent starting point. The Roadster is powered by a Tecumseh HS40-4hp engine, runs drum brakes and 10′ wire wheels. The cool part is that Rupp’s were manufactured in Mansfield, OH. We are going to have a lot of fun with this project!
