I have been working on a Powell project for aprox 2 years and would very much like to add this very important bike to your awesome collection of powell mini bikes. Here is a brief history of the powell in question. It was sold to Willie Garner of the Trans-Dapt corp. on 07-26-67 number 30 of 38 sold to willie would called it a SAAPE pit bike. There are only 2 that I know of to exist as of this email. Attached are a few photos of the before and after. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Doug Sandburgs Powell Challenger minibike. It has a Briggs 5hp but it puts out around 8-10hp. It used to burn alcohol and I was told it developed about 12+ hp. This bike really flies. It is a blast to ride.

Stan Evans's Powell Challenger
Stan Picked up this Scooter at a Police Auction for $9.00.
He started with the frame, forks, wheels, handle bars and seat bracket. He fabricated the seat, chain guard, clutch cover and kick stand. He added a 5 HP Brigs Engine and now has $70.00 invested. Not original but a nice ride.
