not worth it, to get a good one worth having you are going to pay in the thousands for a italian bird. I would get one of these and motard it. I have street tires for the gap. You would need a damn good pocket rocket to keep up with the type of bike I have.

I was going to get a pb at first, but these are better bang for the buck.

Yeah, those are what you call throw away bikes, because you get to throw them away after a few uses.

If you are dead set on one, look for a lucky 7 or a Cag

Look locally, not worth shipping something like this. Honda CRF50F or XR50 is what you want.

Torquing and lubing... Sounds like a normal Saturday night to me...

My pit bike is a 1969 Heathkit minibike with a 5hp briggs and stratton lawnmower engine.

I used to ride it all the time, but the other day I couldn't get it running cuz it sat for a while...

Hopefully I can get it running again soon so I can take it up to the track in two weeks.

BTW the thing has a banana seat and a MONSTROUS rear tire for the size minibike that it is. I put a big harley davidson sticker on the rear fender as a joke because its loud, handles like chit, and is slow

That this is awesome! So does that have a clutch?

Stay away from those little pb's. I bought one when they first come out for $500 bucks and it was the worse thing ever. The welds sucked, good luck keeping a pull starter, and the carbs stayed f'ed!

It has a clutch, but not one that you activate yourself. It is a centrifugal type, with the springs and weights inside. One time it basically exploded and shot parts all over the place and I had to ghetto-rebuild it

Not with me now... I will take some this coming weekend. The thing is hilarious... I just need to get it running again. I will probably have to ask some of the TWF gods for some assistance I don't want to have to take it to a lawnmower repair shop.

You ever seen one of those movies where the guy rides a bike through a rope and gets clotheslined? Yeah, that just happened to me. I am going to the hospital, bike is fine except for a broken brake lever. I am pretty rashed up because I thought a little bike and going playing in the dirt didn't require a jacket. My neck and arms took some nice burns from the rope. Watch out on trails kids, you never know what f**ktard might put up a rope to take you out.

I'm back from the hospital, I got some stitches in my right arm. I am well bruised across the arms and neck from the rope. I will get some pics up in a minute, will have to get some of the stitches when I clean the wounds tomorrow. If I ever find the f**ker who put that rope up, I am shooting him.

Yeah man that is super dick. I bet he often chills near there to try to see people wreck. If you catch him there, bring a baseball bat

Glad to hear you're not too f&*ked up... healing.

You'll find him you probably have some little adolescent bastards walking thorugh your neihborhood that are the likely culprits. Just catch them doing something bad and make em piss their pants then everytime you see em make fun of em for being panty pissers.
