That looks like fun. As short as I am, I don't think it would be too uncomfortable

I wouldn't get a 4 stroke pocket bike, not worth it. Get a two stroke bored out and you will smoke that 110 pocket bike easy money. Might as well go with a crf50 bored out to a 108 or larger and really kick some ass. I raced around with a 108 over the weekend compared to my 88 and you don't need anymore engine unless you are on a real track and not a mini track.

seen plenty of 88cc kits for the CRF50, but how much work is in getting the 108 out of it, seems like thats getting pretty extreme for the case to have a decent lifespan isnt it? the 88cc kits have a new top end to go with it, is that all the 108 takes? Id like to get a street designed one to already have fair suspension, where the CRF is ognna be real soft for the dirt, and also just get it already with street slicks, not knobbies... gettign into a lot more cost by time u get the street parts in.

Anything beyond 108 you start running into reliability problems, 108 uses the 88 race head and you need to add an oil cooler to the bike. It can cost a fortune to build one of these bikes up. Yeah you pretty much have to replace the suspension as well.

However, if you go china, you can get a motard setup for a decent price right out of the box. Pitster Pro offers some nice 150s.
