#35 - Razor PR200 Pocket Rocket
Image
Can't wait to get batteries in this thing and take it for a spin! Thanks for the trade, Battman! :D
I'm probably going to make this a resto project in the fall and sell it for some xmas cash. I'm not sure how I feel about keeping it for my daughter. I've seen a lot of videos of kids riding/handling these pretty well, but I think I'll err on the side of caution this time...

#36 - Chalky MF Jeep
Image
I picked this up for parts for the Beach Buggy flip... I'm keeping the wheels and harness. If anyone wants something off it, let me know.
Oh, and it came with a free ant farm! :x

#37 - Step2 Gigante
Image
Not sure what I was thinking buying this one, but when I picked up the red MF above, I asked the lady if she had any others. She showed me this thing and I offered her $5 for it... it had about 2 gallons of water inside the body! :shock: I had to drill out a hole with my knife to drain it before putting it in my trunk. I'll slap a battery in it and get a few bucks for it, I hope!

let me know if you need some cut vinyl for the resto on the pocket rocket. I'm anxious to see what you do to it.

Happened to be at the right place at the right time (RARE for me, lol) to purchase a few brand new PW gearboxes today!!
I ended up with 21 total. Mostly #7R. With motors. :D :D :D
I'll make a post in the for sale section when I'm ready to start selling.

Who says you can't polish a turd?
Here's the old-school Beach Buggy I picked up for $10:

Finally got a few hours today to clean it up and make it sell-able:

Now I just have to wire the 2x 6V aftermarket batteries into it and get it the heck outta my garage! :D

18V MiniMoto Honda
Image
Image
Came with an 18V battery (seems to be a single large SLA) and charger. Runs great! A little slow to keep for myself, but it's super sharp so I think I'm going to hang on to this one and see if my daughter wants to try it out in a year or two.
Got it in trade for a Razor E200! :lol:

Thanks, Bruce!
The 20 year old gearboxes ended up getting swapped for some newer #7s when a buyer came to try it out. Thing barely moved with the weight of a kid on it. They need to be stripped and regreased. I think I have 6-8 MF GBs in my collection, now! Time to sell some, I think...

Arctic Cat
Image
$40 with charger and what appears to be a good battery. It's not as faded as the picture makes it look, btw...
Needs wheels (which I've got), a shovel, hood straps, seat belts, something for the hole in the dashboard (a key, I'm guessing?), and a bath.

Thanks for letting me have it! hahahaa!
I ended up having them deliver it for some gas money... he offered when I told him that I'd have to disassemble most of it to get it to fit in my Saturn! :lol:

GATOR

Scored this beauty for $40 with used battery and charger. Looks barely driven!
Had to disassemble it in the seller's driveway to get it to fit in my Saturn... but totally worth it!
Image
I haven't tested anything on it, yet... PO states the battery is shot (which I believe). But hopefully it's as nice mechanically as it is cosmetically!

There's enough "keepers" in my garage, so once I get it reassembled and the battery situation figured out, I'll sell it. I'm going to try to get around $200 for it.

Dune Racer - Hot Wheels Style
$50!! Came with dead battery, charger, owners manual. Looks barely driven and the high speed lock-out screw was still in place!

Debating if I should bother putting one of my new 12v 12ah SLAs in it, or just sell it with a working OEM of unknown strength (haven't been able to test it for duration).
What would you do?

Build a load tester!

If you buy bulbs new you'll have $70 into it. If it saves you from buying 4 batteries its paid for.

Search "home brew load tester" if you need more info ;)

Been ages since I've put any of my scores/flips up. So, here are a bunch of random pics of the more notable rides that were briefly in my garage so far this year.

$120 RZR, hells yeah!!

But we had to sell the Silver to make room for the RZR :(

Not as productive as the last couple years, but definitely some high-value targets!
