Default OLD bike, need your help.

I just got a (Kraft?) R/c bike. I don't know anything about these 1/5th scales. Idon't have the radio or battery cover for the bottom. Any ideas on where/how to get them?

It's pretty cool, i like how the servo shifts the battery from side to side in a turn. Ican't wait to run this then set it on the self for display.

I have opened it up and put a crystal in there. I would still like to get the orginal controller though. It runs okay but needs gears, as you can hear a stripping sound sometimes. Its pretty fun. Where could i find parts for this? Thanks guys.

I also have a 1/8th kyosho HOR. They are still produced. This bike is a kraft? and is from the late 70's early 80's? I'm having a hard time finding any info but thats what i know so far. This is a 1/5th scale. Its a huge difference next to my kyosho HOR. I will take a pic later of them side by side.

You can see the size difference in the pic next to the remote. Also look at the bottom, it holds a 7.2 volt standard stick pack just fine. Thats a cool part that swings side to side. This also has a 550 can motor too.

Sorry, my eyes are not what they used to be. Eeerrr, can only suggest posting that pic on moto-5.com and rcgroups. Never come across kraft myself.
