The Milk Man’s Midget Racer

1960s Midget Racer

As I was on the hunt for an interesting motorcycle to feature, I came across the most interesting of finds! It clearly isn’t a motorcycle, although it is powered by a Cushman motor. This 1960’s midget racer looks like it could be an absolute blast to restore and zip around it! I imagine size wise it lands somewhere between a go-kart and an ATV. And with the right tires would probably be as comfortable on a dirt track as it would be on road course. I love the plaid seat and its back story! The seller states it was last raced by a guy who went by the name “the Milk Man”, which seems like the perfect name for an all white midget racer! While it is going to need work, there really isn’t a lot to this little machine. You can find this racer here on eBay in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida with bidding just over $1,200.

    It would be a fun project for little cash involved, if it was closer that person might have been me. Now I was at the same cruise in Independence,Mo. last night as the one I posted the dual engine “NASTY” street rod and here another car that is my cool pic that fit’s the story of small cars “Dwarf Car ” that is, I want one.

    Okay, I give up. Where does the Indian come in? How is this a bike?

    Looks like a quarter midget although it might be a T/Q but I don’t think so. The price is not bad for historical reasons other than that you can buy newer 1/4’s for around that price. Lots of fun to race.

    What a cool toy to have.
    Just went to the Dwarf Car site. I have to assume that they are all hand built. Absolutely fantastic. what a hobby.

    My dad raced midgets at the Tulsa fairgrounds after ww2. Never had pictures but had pics of his 36′ ford after it went over the fence. He tolde that if they wrecked the race car, they’d just lock the tow car in second gear and race it.
