Looks like a good price, but I doubt it would be TMGP suitable.
But I say buy it just for the fun of it.
Ive had a little pocketbike for a few years (some of those days it actually ran too!)
Ive actually used it to start learning about working on engines.

There is really not much use for those. You can zip around your neighborhood and entertain people at the track day. That's about it.

you have to look at it this way. That pocketbike will be a toy for all intents and purposes. You will get toy reliabilty, build quality and overall satisfaction with it. I bought my pocketbike when I was between bikes for 6 months after a crash. It was my moto-fix.

If you buy a 50, you will be getting a miniature motorcycle. It will have motorcycle reliability and build quality.

A 50 can be an investment. Something that is worth putting money into.

Get a Honda 50 and you'll get that classic Honda bulletproof engine.

Get a pocketbike and you'll constantly be turning wrenches and tuning it to get it to run.
