Pit bikes?

Anyone knowledgable about pit bikes. I am thinking of getting a used crf 50 or some kind of china knock off like a SSR90R and motarding the s**t out of it. Advice would be much appreciated if you are knowledgable on the subject.

Here is a link to parts sight.

http://www.50caliberracing.com/

Or check out www.wmriders.com. There is a 50 section on that forum.

There are guys around here that stunt them and are very knowledgable about the 50's

I have this chinese thingie pit bike. the guy I had bought it from for dirt cheap had put a stiff shock on it and scooter tires. If you are willing to spend a little get a japanese one they are much nicer, but the chinese made piece of crap I have is fast as hell and can take quite a beating. I would reccomend a 125cc as they are bigger than the fifties and are a bit easier to ride imo a bit quicker too. Do it....

Definitely, I already bit it on the bike. I put on my street wheels. Dude sold me two sets of wheels, 10/10 for street and 12/10 for dirt. Well I went exploring behind my apartment and found a 4x4 trail. This damn thing went on for awhile and was a decent trail and branched a ton. I lost it in a turn, should kept my dirt tires on. This thing is a ****in blast!!!

I want to see pics of you on the bike... How big is it? I have a feeling seeing my fat ass on one of those would be like 10lbs of chit in a 5lb bag.

I'm 6'1" and 170lbs, it lugs my ass around. Mine has a taller swingarm and taller forks, other 50s are much smaller. I already ordered white plastics and stickers to make it look similar to my CBARRR.

They are a lot of fun, I been dragging knees in the parking lot of a church behind my place with the street tires. I am going to get a video of the trails behind the church in a few days. It's pretty cool back there and has some technical parts.

depends on how modded it is, can run from $500-$5000. You can get a new china bike for around a $1000, but it is chinese so expect everything to be in need of torquing and lubing.

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