I'm just wondering if anyone here still rides these, I used to have a air cooled C1 in 2006 but at the time I didn't knew how to un-jam the carb so I was told that either me or the bike had to go... I stayed. :rolleyes:

As time went by I got hooked to other hobbies especially Mini-Z but then I did miss riding a minimoto, last week a good deal came and I gave it a go.
Now I got myself one of those pre-2007 "Lucky Seven" MTA2 model bikes just for the fun of a little ride around the go-kart tracks. :cool:

I bought the full frame + engine + carb + wheels w/tires and complete brakes for only 30 Euros (~$40 USD). :D
This one actually looks like it has a really tough frame for such a cheap chinese bike, did a good check before buying and it has no bent parts at all.

This is how it looks atm, still need to install some stuff missing.

Meanwhile yesterday, I got another deal of only 25 Euros (~$33 USD) for one more bike, this one was complete but it's the normal MTA2 model. :)

I'm taking out the parts I need for the Lucky 7 bike and maybe I'll have something comming out of what's left of the other bike. :p
Just need to be careful to only go out with it when it stops raining, this weather hasen't been helpful at all... :mad:

Make sure your wearing protective gear (especially knees) when you ride.....

Awesome....
pocket bikes are a panic and now you can "twist the wrist" and not get too hurt if you rub the road....:D
Have fun and keep the rubber side down.......:cool:
