Post Sale Update: this Fox Tracker sold for $930 after 20 bids on eBay.

No, it’s not the Fox you’re familiar with. This Fox was called Fox Corporation, and it was based in Janesville, Wisconsin. It was very difficult for me to find official information on this company, but I’ve seen anecdotes that they offered six different models of minibikes in the early 70s, and this simply-named Tracker was one of the most advanced.

Fox’s other minibikes were quite small, but the Tracker was actually suitable for most adults. It was powered by a 2-stroke 139cc Tecumseh AH-817MB engine that pushed 5 horsepower through a torque converter. In addition, it had Showa suspension front and rear.

This example (VIN: XL755004592) was acquired by the seller in a bad state, but he’s gone through and cleaned up quite a bit of it, including painting of the frame and motor. The seller says “it was running before restoration” but then says it “has not been started since and does not have any fluids in it.” That could be a big concern as many parts for this Tecumseh motor seem to be no longer available. There’s a few cosmetic issues that the seller details, but I felt obligated to share this as it’s such a rare find. But rare doesn’t mean valuable, so let’s see what you think of it!
