Default Coleman Trail Bikes

Has anyone used any of the modern Coleman Tote-Goats? (You know, the ones at almost all the outdoor stores now)

CT200, BT200, CC's, etc??

I just repaired a clutch on one.
From day one the second you started the cheap engine it would want to take off.
The spring in the centrifugal clutch was so weak the shoes of the clutch were being thrown out and trying to engage the clutch, even at idle. Clutch got so hot in 15 seconds of idle you couldn’t even touch it.
I wanted it out of my shop so quickly I did not wait for a new clutch.
I took the clutch apart, removed about an inch of spring, and wrestled it back together.
Worked great, zero repair cost for my buddy, and perma-grin on his son’s face.
At least until the cheap engine, cheap tires, or other cheap parts fail.
You get what you pay for.
Save your money and buy a Rokon.

My girls and the neighbor boys went in on one together 4 years ago. I believe it had a Robin (Subaru) 7 hp engine. They have ridden that thing all over Tooele County. The neighbor boy put a new engine in it 6 months ago and replaced bald tires, but that thing is still going strong. They put 4 people on it at a time, quite funny actually......

There's a guy on Youtube who put a supercharger on a Harbor Freight Predator engine... 70HP!!! Put that in a tote-goat

Late 70s my dad hunted with a guy who had a Rokon. My dad had a Honda Trail 90, with the biggest rear sprocket I've ever seen. It geared it down to an absolute crawl in first gear. He could go nearly everywhere the Rokon could go, and alot easier in some places. Rokons are bulky and no suspension in the early ones, so it was a rough ride wrestling it around the rough terrain.

They used to hunt the north mountain above Alpine back before it was turned into a wilderness area. Ride right up to the granite treeline and hunt.

Remember the days of chained up military surplus Jeeps and no rules?
You could pretty much keep going until the snow coming up over the hood blocked your vision.
I was just a little kid but super lucky to live at the tail end of those days.

How about a Dodge WDX. I'd kill for one of those today.

I just wanted something to cruise around our property for fun. I don't hunt where you could take something motorized so this would be more to dink around the mountain on
