Posted by: Clark Wilcox TITLE: MOTORIZED BICYCLES: cox bronco
Does anyone have any info/brochures/instructions for a mid 60~s Cox Bronco bike motor. I had one long ago and just got another that is missing several parts. Any help would be appreciated and I would gladly pay for copies of manuals etc. Thanks, Clark

My pal~s motor was definitely bought from AHC, and it was
set up as a roller-drive bike motor, and labelled as such.
The quality of information at AHC (like most places) depends
upon who happens to answer the phone. Checking with Cox is
a good idea, as they can tell you who carries the motor now,
if AHC actually doesn~t anymore.

Thanks for the info, I called AHC and they claimed they didn~t know anything about bicycle motors. They thought he might have gotten a large airplane engine and modified it. Next step is to call Cox and see what they say. Clark

I don~t know about the "Bronco" designation, but the Cox bike
motor is still, as far as I know, still in production. A friend
of mine bought one about five years ago, to mount on a Schwinn tandem.
My friend bought his at America~s Hobby Center (AHC)here in
New York. Cox is a leading maker of model aircraft engines.
The bike engine is pretty much identical to their larger
model aircraft engines. Check a recent model plane magazine
for the company~s address, or run a web search. I~m sure they
can send you a manual.

Thanks for the reply, as a matter of fact it was purchased from e-bay. I got my first motor in 1967 for selling subscriptions to the local newspaper, and used it for some time until the bike was stolen. I~m planning a trip to the Rose Bowl swap meet to look for parts and to look-up the patent number and try to find info or diagrams. Thanks, Clark

I don~t know anything about these, unfortunately. If you find out anything could you send info for my archives? I~ll ask a couple of people I know if they have any info.
Is this the one that was on E-Bay not too long ago?
