    Default Minibikes, anyone?

    Just curious if anyone on here is into mini bikes/go karts. I finished up my first one a couple months ago, a 1970's Sears Roper but I also have a Manco Streaker that I'm putting a Clinton Panther 2 stroke in and I'll be picking up a go kart soon to fix up and modify.

    I've never indulged, but I've wanted a jumbo sized street legal dirt bike for a while. You can't ride the things anywhere in NJ, sucha an ahold state. A dune buggy or like it on the small side is also of interest. When time allows.

    Where is that photo taken?

    That was up at my family's cabin on Lake Sacandaga in NY. They draw the lake down through the summer so the beach gets really big in august and september. I brought it up for my 12 year old cousin to blast around on, I tend to get stuck in the sand...

    I believe they still call them enduros.

    There is a group of 15 to 20 riders that go through my neighborhood every once in a while on small motorcycles. I believe they are customized small motorcycles similar to the Honda Grom. They pop wheelies and perform tricks on them.
    They look like they're having a blast with them!

    Personally, I want to get either a sport bike or sport touring bike. For years I rode motorcycles, but several years ago I got into a money pinch and had to sell the one I had.
    Got the bug for another one now.

    I have no idea. I just need a big one. And it would have to be something I can ride on the street.

    Why not a Honda CT70? Those are street legal

    That looks like a mini bike. I realize that's your chosen topic, but I had in mind a full sized dirt-street bike. I'm nearly 6'4", I want something I'd feel comfortable on.

    I have no money. When I buy something it's going to be much cheaper. Not anytime in the near future, far too many things on the clipboard.

    I know, just a joke I'm 6'2" and I ride a z50 from time to time though!
