Anyone ever had a pocket bike?

Just curious if anyone has ever had one I'm thinking about getting one next summer. It looks like fun and a way to look stupid. Since I'm 6'3"

Buddy of mine had one to. There a blast to ride. His kept having problems tho first paint faded horribly then there was something wrong with the fuel system then electrical until it finally became such a hassle he gave up on it. I think he paid something like 400- 500 off eBay

Honesty, I miss mine, it was fun as hell. I had an electric one that did around 25mph for like 2 hours. I would race my brothers in the driveway, it was fun. That was almost 10 years ago.

I realize their dangerous but Idc. They look like so much fun and I'd be willing to spend 500 on something I could put in my trunk and take somewhere

I rode my buddy's a few times. Tried to do a wheelie and when I set the front end down the wheel was missing. I ended up doing a front flip over the bars and running out of it lol

Got some rash but it was still fun as hell and we laughed for about an hour after that.

I have a xr50 with one of the lifan 125cc 4 speed motors and a thumpstar 125cc.

Both are extremely fun for the investment. If you can get one. get one. i put little scooter tires on it and use it around the pits as well.

I had some chinese 49cc pocket bike off ebay when I was in middle school/high school. Rode that thing everywhere till I decided to take it apart and paint the frame. Never got around to putting it back together.

Exactly like this one. Chrome and all.

That's exactly the type I'd want to screw around with! But maybe more power

My buddy and I them and we use to come home from the bar and rip around drunk, a few spills here and there but no major injuries, nothing more then falling off a skateboard or bmx anyways. After a summer of abuse one got electrical problems and the other kept spilling gas everywhere and we couldn't find the problem. Fun toys if you can find them cheap.
