the GP chassis are a little harder to come by than the tards, but the nsf is a popular bike...
I have a pitster pro x2 gp, but i have not riden it yet and can not say how it will do...the nsf is a proven bike.

It seems as if they are hard to find for sale... is there anyplace where I can find them for sale at a decent price?

So let's day I have 1500 bucks. Would that be enough to get a bike and be somewhat competitive? Or should I say to have a bunch of fun?

i have seen several bikes that guys have built and sold for less than 1500...
not aware of any at the moment but this is the time of the year that guys usually sell bikes that they have used in tmgp racing...
a good xr/crf100 or a klx110 that could be competitive in f7 may be found for that...
the major expense in converting one would likely be rims and tires...
I just remember that john, gabriel on this forum said something about having a bike for sale, not sure what he has done to it, or what shape it is in, i have not seen it or talked to him about it, but you could pm him and see what he has...
i over spent building mine because i did not know anything about it at the time and i bought all my stuff new... buying someones old bike is cheaper... also check with steve he had one or two for sale and i am not sure if he has one left to sell or not...

Less than 1500 for a bike, $35 for a license, fun to ride....
I need a small mini so bad now!! D:
Oh well I'm strapped for cash, so I won't get one for a long while but I will one day!
