Question Where to buy pit bike locally?

Looking to pick up a pit bike locally "TODAY". Anyone know where I can grab one. Looking for a cheap chinese bike as I enjoy lead poisoning.

I found one in Alvin but would like to find one a bit closer to me if possible (The Woodlands).

Woha, really? That's literally less than a mile from my place. Selling them from the road? As I've seen various folks selling stuff at the intersection.

I'm willing to go up to $800 but would like to find something cheaper so I have extra $$ for any mods/upgrades I might want. Harwin is a great idea.

You could get a used kawi or suzuki 110 for that price on cl and still have a better bike than a new china knock off.

We paid about that for a 2007 Honda 100

I think Tractor Supply sells them new (at least they did - we bought a couple about four years ago), but they don't last long.

This little fatty bike is fun as ! Also, does not last very long. You can't wreck it. I think it's about $600 brand new.

My concern is ride height on the crf50. Never actually rode a mini before :P I'd like it to be half comfortable for getting around at the track with my leathers on and also interested in tearing up some parking lots or local trails.

That's why we have a Honda now.

After years of repairs and replacements and repairs, we realized it's not worth it to buy the cheap ones. Though, the kids did enjoy tearing them up.

Just keep looking for a used crf100, then. It's big enough to be powerful, but small enough to be fun. I almost can't reach the ground on it.
