Question on Bumpers

I have a question on the front and rear bumpers that we can buy out of parts magazine.

My question is my truck had a bumper like this:

But the one I can buy out of the book looks like this:

What does it take to mount the second bumper?

And as for the Rear bumper that can be bought out of the book, do they still require the original brackets? The ones that bend down and there is a LH and RH for each side of the truck. The frame is sandwiched between the 2 brackets.

Click the image to open in full size.

Thank You!

Well I met up with a guy just today that I met a couple weeks ago that has 2 '57's and he gave me the 2 brackets for the front bumper that I need off of his parts truck.

Thank you

My dad got that CT70 new when he was a kid. The CT70 had a few issues last year. It would idle fine but it couldn't move itself under it's own weight muchless with me on it. So I was going to swap out the condensor and points once but couldn't pull the flywheel myself. I took it in to a shop and that guy couldn't pull it off either. It ended up rolling over the end of the crank along with bending it a little That motor was rebuilt 2 or 3 times believe it or not because of all the miles put on it, in a 4 year period I put 3,000+ miles on it.

This winter I think I might invest in a new 125cc engine for it but still of course keep the original 72cc engine. Maybe I will rebuild it someday?
