Are these worth a ?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ROLLI...spagenameZWDVW

I was thinking about picking up a rolling chassis and swapping out the engine from one of the 50s I got. I got a good deal on the 50 which has a 2006 engine with a 2000 frame. The frame is pretty beat up so i thought I would find a rolling chassis, but I have no idea if these are worth a . Either that or strip the existing bike down and sandblast the frame then powder coat it or something. Any ideas?

I spent the whole week on these little 50s and I am ridiculously addicted at this point. I have skin loss to prove it Should have worn knee pads I guess

How could you go wrong for $150?
It's even got the exhaust system. It's prolly a POS but it's $150.

My mistake, you are correct sir.

In that case it's pretty iffy. If you have a motor but no frame it'll prolly be ok for modest stunting.
I would not, EVER, try to jump it, even a little. Those cheap shocks lack rebound damping and it very likely will pitch you over the handle bars.

dont waste your money on like that rolli ng chassis for a honda 50 is about 300-400 and youll have a good base to build off of.

Ahh... I have read around a bit and talked with some others who have the same opinion as you all. I'll keep an eye out for a true honda rolling chassis. Thanks I might as well strip the other bike down and mess with the frame. At least that way i'll gain a better understanding on how to do maintenence work myself.
