Thinking about getting me a 50, need input

I don't know a thing about them except that they have two wheels, but that wheelie thread got me wanting to get one. Can I get some input on what to look for, price range, etc.?

My girl is getting a 250 and selling her mini for like 700-750$. Its an 06 crf 50 with a big bar kit, a stiffer rear spring, street tires and filter/exhaust. Might be a good choice.

Welcome to the jungle.

You can find a stock one for 500. I paid 750 for mine with pegs, big bar kit, I shock rear spring and street tires.

I've seen better deals on here as well.

+1 on what everyone has said so far. You can ride a bone stock 50 but the first mod you'll want to get are tall handlebars so your not hitting your knees on the stock ones. Then be ready for some serious fun.

Thats what I would personally do, because buying the mods indivually adds up, but some people want to know the bike hasnt been abused or want to personalize it themselves. But since Trinis is street legal, that would be a major selling point for me depending on price.

My phone is dying, so I'm going to have to look into all the offers when I get a charge back on the phone (probably around 7pm).
