Just sell it and buy a fiddy.
If you want to put money into it, to make it like a fiddy, just buy a fiddy.
Just my opinion.

Instead of flaming you for wanting to save some money, let's look at the bright side - you want a 50. A friend of mine purchased a Roketa (Chinese crf50 knockoff) about 2 months ago and has been very happy with it. You have to realize that you are purchasing a bike that is sold for like half the price of other similar Japanese bikes. After a bottle of lock-tite and going over the whole bike 'just in case' they left anything loose, I was pretty happy with what 500$ gets you. The bike is made for offroad riding, and that is what my friend does with his. It is more powerful than a 50, but not as much as the approx. 125cc displacement would lead you to believe. Would I buy one? Probably if I was looking for something that might need some tinkering and I realized that I was getting a 500$ bike. For stunting, I would stick with a . bike just because of the availability of parts, reliability, and aftermarket parts availability. Hope this helps.
cheers..

The only knock offs that are worth it usually cost more than the hondas such as the extreme's, sdg's, and so on. I am currently on a extreme 125 with a big bore kit. Very durable. Gotta pay to play.

Well I got a knock off that a buddy of mine got from pep boys I think. I have not check what the name of it is really. He used it for stunting on the street with. and all of his friends had use it and ate their $hit. The bike from the videos i seen had been pretty beat up. I got it for 50$ from him and all the is borken on it is three spokes and a stator. which luckly for me josh is nice enough to hook me up with a stator and clayton happen to have spokes laying around and said for me to just come get them. I also have one made by vento which make scooters around the world. It's a pitbull pro with a 108 bore kit that has been looped and low sided and flipped over the front. nothing really bad on it except braking a kick stant and lever. But I did pay almost 2k for it but with all upgrades done for racing on the track with it. I have a honda 50 also that is my sons and that one has had a few spills. Where I am getting at you might get lucky with the knock off you have, plus parts are pretty easy to find for them anyways. If anything some motors are based off a retro 90 honda motor so if you can't find some parts that would be one way to find them. I have found complete motors for the same as like on ebay.
