Default Rupp Go-Joe Mini

I have a Rupp Go-Joe mini for sale...

Its a rare little item, there are alot of the full size go-joes around, but not the minis. this one has a 5 hp craftsman engine on it. I've had two collects both tell me that it is worth easily 1000 because of how rare it is.

My son was riding this around the yard this summer and had a blast with it, hes just outgrown it now.

Email me at munkingdom@yahoo.com if interested or have questions

Its too bad you sprayed that blue paint all over the seat and tires. I'll give you $200.

Its funny how rare some stuff has become. I sold a Money wards mini bike that I have had about 8 years. it ran great and rode fine. the guy that bought it was a collector who planned on restoring it since it was the most complete one he'd found (had all its chain gaurds & stuff) it didn't matter how nasty the paint was or the seat. he said that all easy stuff. hard parts are the real bitch to find.

So can you email me some more detailed pics of the engine bay, the front end, and any cracks or damage to the fiberglass? Also do you have the original seat? It would be used as a pattern to return it to original.

Thanks

i don't have the original seat, thats what was on it when i rescued it and i sprayed it blue just cuz of how bad it looked when i got it...it looks 10x better than it did.

I looked the rupp over today, it has a few cracks in it... nothing a fiberglass repair kit wouldn't fix.. the frame is solid. i have more pics of it taken today. If you would like them send me an email address and ill send them to you.

I pulled the engine today and this weekend i am putting a new clutch on.

For the era of this rupp.. it is very solid

I believe I have seen a full size one at the New Lothrop car show this past summer. It looked like a inline 3 seater, it was red too.

I had never seen a Go-Joe until now and was curious what else Rupp made (besides snowmobiles) and came across this site http://www.ruppbikes.com/RuppBikes.aspx
They have a forum there and it might help you out to post something over there.
Neat machine you have there.
