Up for sale is a Tote Gote. I'm not sure about the year. but after looking on line it looks like its the early 60's. The model number 600 and the serial number is 1566. It does run and drive. I would say the top speed is around 30 to 35 miles per hour. It looks like it should have a front brake cable and handle on it (see photo). It was not there when I bought the bike. The motor seems to run good. but the recoil dogs don't always what to catch and the recoil is noisy when the motor is running. You can see that the seats have wear on them . but there and no holes that I can see. The tires are weather checked but do hold air. The left front foot rubber pad is gone. If you look at the photo of the front motor rock guard you can see that there are dents in it. The size of the bike is. These are all in inches: 60" long. seat height 29". handle bar height 37". handle bar width 24''. frame width 15''. frame width with foot pegs 23''. I don't know the weight off the bike. There is no title with this bike. This bike is not new but would be great for someone to restore. I can also store the bike up to four months if need be. There is no reserve!!!Make sure you look the photos over good!Let me know if you need more info or photos.  Tote Gote history: "Bonham Goat" or Bonham Tote-Gote were special bikes invented by Ralph Bonham. a Utah based company. They produced the bikes in a couple of different models. Unfortunately. the company no longer exists. Bonham scooters are interesting . They have a special feature of being double-geared. thus. resulting in the unusual drive arrangement over the back wheel. This double gear characteristic yields good torque for climbing hills unlike most of the mini-bikes that are geared for low torque but high top-end speed. Because they were good at climbing hills. the name "Goat" came about. thus the name "Bonham Goat" or "Tote Gote".
