looks like he's selling some minis in good shape... unless you go to a name brand bike, they're all just Chinese and Korean knockoffs of the older Japanese bikes... most of them are honda knock offs, but a few are TTR and KLX wanna-bees.

I had one that was a 110cc mini-racer (called an X-18 - looked like a 1/3 sized gixxer) ... I took off the fairings, painted it all red and black to make it look like a ducati monster.

They have everything imaginable available for them... big bore, stroker kits, cams, carbs, pipes, rev-box, etc etc etc...

Basically, for a used 110cc 4 spd with all the go fast goodies, I was out less than $1k and it'd smoke a 250 ninja around the parking lot (I was working at the kawi dealer in Sealy... and raced the service manager for giggles... then he got on a KX 250 2 stroke that he kept in the back and ate my lunch... LOL).

The only thing is they sit REALLY low to the ground.... so I would go through knee pads and work boots like crazy (you won't even realize your rubbing, and then all the sudden your foot gets really hot... it's kinda funny till you ruin a $100 pair of work boots by wearing them down till the steel shoes through the toes).

If I were going to buy another one, I'd get a "pit-bike" instead of a mini-street... they sit higher, and the parts easier to find... I had to mail order a lot of mine... they're cheap, but they take a few weeks to get it delivered (sometimes they were back ordered ... like when I needed a new brake master cylinder for the front... I ended up getting manual brakes from a bicycle shop for about 2 months while I waited for parts to come in).

Just my 2 cents...
