The ToteGoat, or Pak Jak, I believe was built by a fellow named J.W. Black, of Paradise, California.
From another Board..."
Just finished reading "Off the Beaten Path in Baja" and he was in it quite a bit. He made an assortment of of off road rigs in the early '60's with names like Pak Jak, Burrito, Butterfly and Grasshopper. They were used to explore the roadless areas of Baja by Erle Gardner of Perry Mason fame. In the book he was said to be from Paradise, this was in '67 that the book was published."
Rottweiler Search puppy on board, Sheriff and Fire Radio in Tuffy box plus Scanner, Warn Winch and Hella Floodlights, hand throttle used daily. York OBA and R & M Hot Shower under hood. And a Tentrax taggin' along behind...

I like taking my girl to gay bars... she doesn't get hit on as much and I get the free drinks
yeah its a 90cc. They are both really fun bikes to ride on, especially the tote gote. Looking at the tote gotes engine really shows the quality of stuff back then, I dont think there is a single plastic part on the whole bike.
