Post Sale Update: This MTD sold for $1,725 after 4 bids on eBay in Spring Hill, Florida.
Not the sexiest name in the world, but the MTD 368-850C is a rare minibike that rides better than you’d think thanks to the leading link front suspension.
Per this site, MTD copied the Desert Fox with this machine – check out the bottom of this page for some reference photos. The 850C utilized a 2-stroke Tecumseh AH817 engine that was good for 5 horsepower and a torque converter, and the wheels were 16″/14″ front/rear.
This first linked site above has photos of this exact example (VIN: 548493), nothing that it’s been restored “but the torque convert and [fairing] decals are not quite correct.” The seller says that it has the original drivetrain and also claims that it’s “very original”, even though he or she includes photos of it presumably being restored. Who knows, maybe it’s truly original and the seller took photos of it stripped down.
