Hi Jim,
I took a lokk at all my minibike service manuals and none give any specs. If you do not have the original sprockets then I can only suggest you buy all new replacenmt sprockets and chain. You can buy #35 or #41 chain size and gear it so that you have a final 6:1 gear ratio. Hope this helps.

Jim,

1) what does it look like? There's more than one Wards bike.

2) Are all pieces there or are you missing wheels, sprockets, etc.

3) As far as gearing, what are your intentions with it?

The jackshaft gives the luxury of being able to gear for a specific use, as well as fudge room for mounting non stock wheels, etc.

Hi Jim and Tom,

Here is the link to the brochure page with pictures of all the model of the Montgomery Wards minibike models

Tom I'm not sure if your is the 424. I assume the 4 means 4 hp. The problem it does not have any specs for the different models. Let us know.

Actually Jay, I do have another ad for those style of Wards bikes, and it does show the 424 as being 4hp, also a 5hp model. There is also another Wards bike that's a completely different style. One of these days you'll be seeing them.

Sounds like his bike will be like mine.
