CRC Industries, Inc. has teamed up with certified minibike fanatic, Joe Sebergandio, creator of the Joe’s Minibike Reunion event, to build a custom TACO Frijole minibike powered by a vintage 3.5 hp Clinton engine. Designed by Sebergandio and built by his “A Team” including famed custom car and bike builder Bernt Karlsson and minibike legend Evil Ed, the bike will be unveiled at the CRC booth at the 2015 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) trade show in Las Vegas.
With CRC color-matching custom Axalta red paint, modified engine work and incorporating actual CRC product on the bike, “this custom CRC minibike will take you back to the late 60s and surely put a smile on your face when you see it!” said Joe Sebergandio.
“As kids, we all either had or wished for a minibike. I am excited and proud to have the chance to work with the team at CRC to re-create that childhood fantasy and re-kindle that fun time in our lives!” he said.
The custom-built TACO will be on display at the CRC Industries booth in the North Hall of the upcoming SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Over the next year, it will be shown at various events attended by CRC and, ultimately, be given away to a lucky winner in 2016.
“CRC is proud of the opportunity to partner with Joe Sebergandio’s highly skilled team to custom-build the CRC TACO Frijole mini,” said Louis Fresta, vice president of sales and marketing, CRC Automotive Division.
“We’ve seen photos of individual parts, but it will be at SEMA that CRC associates as well as show attendees will see the completed minibike for the very first time. Naturally, we’re very excited to see the finished product that is the result of Joe’s vision and the collaboration of some truly talented people,” Fresta said.
