I bought this 1970 ElTigre mini-bike from a friend of mine. These were alot of fun back in the day. I remember when Penneys & Sears used to sell these mini-bikes in the 70s. If you were lucky as a kid, you had one of these models with working suspension. If not you just hit the gas on your rigid frame model & learned to hang on tight!

    Use to have one when I was a kid. Would you be interested in selling it?
    Brings back a lot of good memories of my Mom and Dad.

    Thanks for the comment Donleo.
    This is one that I had sold a few years ago, but I still wanted to post a pic.

  5. Donleo, 3 years ago
    Depends on the condition. All fixed up good condition about $500 if all original

    I just picked one up from a buddy I grew up with. He is the original owner of it, we rode it as kids.

    I had two of these. One in the 70's. It had the full suspension. The second one we picked up a couple years ago., someone had taken the engine out and replaced it with a chainsaw motor. It was slow off the line but had a great top end. Great memories..

    Hi Mikeh,
    Not sure, maybe , they have a parts section and a lot of other minibike info. Or keep checking on eBay and eventually something might turn up.
