I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

An easy and fun choice for children to learn the fundamentals of riding. The compact 49cc SOHC single-cylinder engine is tuned to produce responsive, easy-to-control low rpm power.  The three-speed transmission has an automatic clutch for easy operation and a neutral-only starting system to prevent starting in gear. The adjustable throttle limiter allows supervising adult to adjust throttle opening to suit the rider's ability.
