RUPP Mini-Cycle 1970 Owner’s Manual

This original Rupp Roadster was left in a barn in working condition. Found and restored some 30 years later, it is a working collectible. The model year is 1970. In 2006, under a layer of dust, it appeared to have very few hours of use. The Rupp Mini-Cycle was purchased from the original owner. It had been well-cared for. Having kept it for less than a year, I changed the fluids, tested it, detailed it, and used it less than one hour. It was a pleasure to restore, but needed to be in the hands of a collector.
