Small bike

Does anyone here know about this little guy?

I need to find a replacement rear wheel. I would like to restore this to what would be close to it's original condition before someone spray bombed it with all that hate. The original owner flatspotted the rear tire. It's solid and molded to the rear wheel which is a freewheel and coaster brake. I think this bike was made by Motif and I have found a similar brand under the Runt Bike name but I can't find any replacement parts supplies anywhere on the web.

I'm pretty sure yours is a Runt Bike. Mine is a Clown bike by Motiv. The wheel parts should be very interchangeable. Let me know if you ever have any luck finding some replacement wheels. I have wasted hours so far and no results.

Those were recalled in 2001, and Wysco ( wysco.com) now only sells automotive parts as far as I can tell.

toyswarehouse.com no longer has the replacement parts

I've got a similar one, also known as monkey bikes or clown bikes. You can buy used ones for around $25 when they show up on Craigslist, so not too worthwhile to repair anything. Plus, they don't normally get used enough to wear anything out.
