Re: Just got my first BIKE BUG!!! Need help..?
Bike Bug....just don't fall for the Texas guy who wants 25 dollars for an "info packet" before he will sell you parts.
eDJ has one. I had one. They are Tanaka engines, and parts are readily available for them.
The primer bulb gets a little stiff from sitting, but usually softens up once you use it a bit. Will need new gas fo'sho'.
The drive wheels are not as ferocious as they look on tires, but a skate wheel can be used as a replacement, can't remember what size the axle is.
Smoooooth and fairly quiet, will run from a walk to about 22 mph.
Also known as a Sears Free Spirit, and (like mine was) a TAS Spitz.
