    Nice find, welcome aboard and please use capital letters when posting.

    Do they all have titles? Any of them run?

    Currently none are running, 2 have had the process started to get titles. I'm just starting with them and hope to get them all running. I also picked up a ton of parts for them in this deal and I haven't even had a chance to check them all out.

    Unbelievable find! Mites are a lot of fun to off-road. Freeway not so much. I have been told to check the cylinders for chrome lining delamination before firing up an engine after a long period of sitting

    Also look for an x on the end of the front spindle shaft by the nut. No x means weak shaft that will break. Seen it happen.

    I guess you could call these one of the famous barn finds but out in the open. This is stuff you read about but never happens to me. You are a luck man. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Oh Carlo, you have no reason to make such comments while having such a long list of vehicles that I wish I only had the OPPORTUNITY to own....
