    Hi All,
    Today I will be receiving my (vintage) brand new, never used, still in box, with original purchase receipt, Tanaka Tas/ Bike Bug engine kit. I honestly have lamented getting rid of the first one I had, Though it went to a good home and the horse trade was awesome, I wanted another. I have two incomplete parts engines I was occasionally working at piecing together, but now I have spare parts! This engine will go on the same bike my first Tanaka engine kit was on- a 1966 Schwinn Typhoon Deluxe (unfortunately I will have to remove the front Clam-shell rack again, but oh well...), with a Bendix two speed red band automatic rear coaster.

    those are some simple cool looking little motor bike engines

    wish they were still made new today -- maybe someday again

    also enjoyed the picture of all your riding friends -- happy looking group

    always fun to ride those motor bike things

    would you take 5 dollars for it ?

    yes -- that THING does look to be ridden hard put away wet more than a few times

    but -- can't go wrong with that price
    one would almost hate to ask
    would you take 5 dollars for it ?

    those things are fun to ride
