    Hi, I'm Jake. I live in southeast Texas and have a wildfire 66/80cc kit on a 24" Huffy Good Vibrations (lol it vibrates alot) cruiser. I wanted to introduce myself and see what y'all think about my projects. My Huffy does just at 31 mph with a 32 tooth sprocket and stihl leafblower muffler because my original curved pipe exhaust was stolen. I used to have the Wildfire 80cc on the wildfire but As soon as I could get tools in my hands, the motor and controls was off and onto another bike. It did about 33-35mph when I put it on my dads bike (26" Elite Convertible 6) but he technically owned it cuz it was on his bike and so he decided when I can and can't ride it. My huffy was broken and in a shack that, after 2 years on the Elite, I took it off and put it on my bike. Now it's all mine and just about to get a springer front end and repaint the 1 gal gas tank from purple metallic to black to match. I still have the huge Wildfire and I'm looking into getting the GT5 Pro Racing motor and kit for it. Is this a more powerful motor or is it just bologna and the same as a grubee or flying horse 66/80cc? Any one else near Groves, Texas?? Thank You!

    Howdy & welcome!!

    Noticed your screen name.......my ex mom-in-law still has a '72 Ranchero with a 428 Super Cobra Jet (12:1 pistons), ram air, and hood tach. I was the last one to drive this beast over 20 years ago. It's still in her barn.

    Welcome to the forum. My dad drove a 62 Falcon for a while, but it was not a Ranchero. I'd like to find a nice 60-63 Falcon to tinker with. Less costly than an early Mustang, and you normally find them in better condition.

    Ford Ranchero. I live in Orange near mauriceville. I have three bikes built now. Check out southeasttexas.com I have them listed for sale under motorcycles in their classified adds right now. They are listed under motor cycles under $999.00 in motor cycles because they did not sale under bicycles. If you want to see them or need parts that I may have left over you can contact me on here and I can private message my phone number if you can't find it in the southeasttexas.com adds. rackemblue
