Yeah I made those myself, and they were far superior to the ones Honda sold for them. The Honda kit was about $100 and they didn’t work very well. I had a chance to actually ride a buddies mini-bike before I bought them. There really wasn’t much too them and I thought maybe I could fabricate them myself. They were attached just underneath the foot pegs where I made mine to attach to the rear axle. The Honda design made it real hard to make any kind of a turn. It would take a country block just to make it turn around. Attaching the training wheels to the axle was the ticket. For all the bright ideas and smart engineering that Honda makes they had the training wheels for those little bikes all wrong. I think I had about $8 invested in the wheels from harbor freight and the steel was just lying around.
