The history of Roper mini bikes is a glimpse into the early days of recreational motorcycling in America. In the 1960s, drag racer and engineer R.B. Bud Roper began crafting mini bikes in his garage, pioneering a new era of small-scale motorized fun. Roper's creations quickly gained attention for their unique designs and powerful engines. His innovative use of performance-oriented components set Roper mini bikes apart, making them sought-after machines among motorcycle enthusiasts. While Roper mini bikes were produced in limited numbers, their impact on the mini bike culture was significant, inspiring a generation of riders to embrace the thrill of compact, high-performance riding. This gallery of Roper mini bikes were sold by Sears in their catalogs and department stores during the 1970s.
