The Mighty Chibi Deluxe!

Before I had my first “real” motorcycle, I had a cute little 60 cc mini bike called a Chibi Deluxe.

I had so much fun on that little thing zipping around the farm roads near my grandparents place in Ladner, BC.

I think I paid $75 for it.

I remember the second gear being busted so you needed to really rev it in first, then pop er’ down into 3rd and it would build slowly from there to a wobbly top speed of about 35 mph. That seemed plenty fast at the time.

Looking online, it seems that a lot of people have fond memories of these little machines that were made in the early 70’s. If you’ve got an extra $600 lying around you can find them on eBay!
