      Nice Diggs. Glad you guys get some enjoyment also. Taco has a much more basic (Taco 22) mini they are selling again - much more aligned with yours, ie basic. Which is good.

        These guys are still selling the Tacos - and a lot of replacement stuff for the Delteks etc. They are just up the road from me.

          Diggs,
          I would call that a 'Taco like' mini bike kit. Or just a minibike kit. The Taco has the handlebars in line with the forks (not angled forward). The rear frame section is also different under the seat than the Taco 22.
          There has been a law suit in the US regarding the unauthorized use of the Taco name. Some are trying to capitalize on the Taco name. Not that it really matters.

            I've found it very hard to get any decent info on all the different brands and varieties that were made/released over here.

            I found a site that was just a guy documenting them, had some great info on it - but I've since lost it and cant find the damn thing again!

              Still at it gents. Magilla sleeps at the back of the garage, but fires up at will. Just rode it today for the first time in a year.
              Hope all is well , and keep at it y'all.

                nice photo, those skyteam bikes are great value.
                You have two parts of brain, 'left' and 'right'. In the left side, there's nothing right. In the right side, there's nothing left.

                    Thanks Gentlemen. Quiet on this site. Is the monkey craze dying off in Australia? It is in the US I believe.
                    BTW, I am picking up a china Dax which I hope to make more a USA style Mini Trail. Much like my Gorilla.
                    Anyway I will post it up when I get it, < month I hope. Cheers
