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.

Everything I have is pretty common and can be found. A mighty mite is a rare machine anywhere. And to see 4 in one place is out of this world.

they are all in the condition shown in the picture. a buddy bought all four from someone a few years ago as projects and never got around to doing anything with them, i had a truck he wanted and he had a few things i wanted and these mighty mites so we made a trade. i more then likely wont be doing much to them until later after i move into our new home with room to store them.

i still have them and saw the paper work for them yesterday , the registration is for the wrong year and here in washington state theres a 3 year wait for title creation on a vehicle without one. the two i plan to keep are the ones that the titles have been started on, with the wrong year which hopefully i will be able to fix. im waiting to bring them home when i move to my new place in idaho. and now ill have to check in on creating titles for the other two in idaho.
