    my buddy brought one buy the other day. Its fun as hell. They get up to about 35 mph but have no suspension. Rattles the sack a bit if you know what I mean...

    they are dirt cheap VS the other pocket bikes out there thats why Im thinking they must suck or something =)

    300 VS 1600-3000 is a big change in price

    If they were fun, and decent, I'd refabricate some suspension. It'd be a real kick to ride one to work. I didn't even look, are they street legal?

    I just watched the Video. I thought they were like on of the older ones, that were taller and had six gears. I know now why they call it a pocket bike.

    Pretty fuckin awesome, and funny, but I don't think I'd buy it. I wouldn't mind one of the larger ones. I rode one of them. They had a 50cc engine stock. My buddy worked at a bike shop, so he stroked it to 80cc.:woo:

    That thing was gutless in the low R's, but spin it faster by staying in the appropriate gear, and it ripped pretty good. It'd probably do 60, cornered mint, had suspension, lights, was street legal, and fun.

    I was confused on the size. If you didn't watch that video yet, do it. ;)

    See, now you're on to something. A Pocket Drag would only take up 1/16 if a mile. What's that? About a block or something? Alcohol burning madness every Friday night. Close off the block and go for it. :evilgrin:

    A devil emoticon would be COOOOOOOL.

    Some of my friends have had pocket bikes for years! Two of my friends just got them a couple weeks ago. The one I don't have pictures of was $400 & this one was around $430.

    They picked them up at the cycle shop off of Chinquapin Rd in Annapolis. As you can see, my friend has already fucked his up... they raced last Friday night at the park-&-ride off of 424. There were at least 5 people there with mini bikes racing! What a sight! :D
