OMB Warehouse stocks a range of genuine OEM spare parts of mini bikes, from the old and the vintage to the modern snazzy mini bikes including the much-loved mini bike Mickey bike. The name Mickey Thompson after whom the Mickey bike goy its name has been associated with performance since the 1950s when the well-known promoter was managing Lions Drag Strip in Southern California and setting records at Bonneville. However, Thompson’s M/T Equipment Company became an actual part of many enthusiasts’ personal racing programs as Thompson created high-quality aftermarket parts and pieces.One little-known part of that was the Mickey Bike. Mini-bikes entered the American subculture in the early 1960s. Used by mini bike enthusiasts and racers as private runabouts, they were built on a diminutive but durable frame and used a small, single cylinder engine for power. Thompson hoped to do it better and introduced his own line of these original pocket rockets in the latter part of the decade. It is believed that M/T’s five-horsepower versions were all constructed by a subcontractor named Jim Dugan Enterprises (JDE) in Long Beach; they featured a chain-driven Briggs & Stratton engine in a tube-constructed chassis, ape-hanger type handlebars, and a special cast Mickey Bike plate and serial number.
