The chinese engines dont have the low range box??

the low range is what makes the CT so useful.

No, they don't, at least none that I'm aware of.

I'm using the CT dual sprocket rear on my build. That will increase my gearing options.

bummer, I loved the low range box

when I was 12, in 1978 I got a hand me down 74 CT from my brother.

My best friend had an XL-70
it was a little small, but was so light, you could pick it up and drag it over a log or whatever.

we rode those things everywhere, 2 tracks, single tracks, highways etc

I put 5000 miles on it before I got a larger bike.


we have a chinese dune buggy/go kart, the engine didnt last long.

******** new video promo *****************

Ok guys.... We attempted the TAT this past summer and only 1 out of 5 guys finished the entire trail. Well, we are going at it again this coming summer but we plan on challenging ourselves just a bit more.
I will let the promo do the talking.. For more info here is a link to the "Rigid" facebook page. We will keep this updated.

I'd call you guys crazy - but after attempting it on CT90s - I think you've already established that!

Any ideas on what you'll be building? I'm picturing something like this:

350 "Meatgrinder"

Rigid choppers + TAT

Sounds to me like like a new way to spell:

masochism
And a new way to keep your repair skills highly proficient.
