Welcome to the forum


We would love to help you but you didnt specify on the type of bikes you're looking to buy.

Are you looking for gas or electric?

Gas
Ebay or Amazon...Make your purchase with a viable credit card like Visa / Amex.One that offers buyers protection so youre covered in any event..

Shipping a chinese made bike with flimsy and fragile acrylic bodies dont always fare well in the shipping process no matter who you buy from and if you are smart when or if theyre delivered you'd open up to inspect the items right in front of the driver because once you sign the bill of lading and he drives off or you put gas in them the warranty is basically null and void and your leg to stand on vanishes right before your eyes.......

If the driver becomes irritated n such about you wanting to inspect the items before you sign;-simply say I can call your boss to see if its okay also to wage a complaint against him.He will be glad to comply after that most times..

Good Luck

Quality bikes???..Are you prepared to spend over $4 grand for 2 brand new bikes and wait atleast 30-60 days for overseas shipping?..

If so;- here ya go link is below but just know getting parts for them here in the US isn't easy anymore either so if you blow a clutch or break something youll be awaiting shipping from either Germany or Italy,,,,

You do realize soon European manufactured pocketbikes and pocketbike racing will be extinct in the US...right?

Buying a coiple used ones will net you nothing but headaches if youre not mechanically inclined or adept to the innerworkings of pocketbikes.

one thing you have to think about is do you honstley want your children on a race bike capable of speeds of 45 mph pluss with no experience the race bikes have crazy power china bikes are good for starting out then work your way up

If your children want to start with the pocketbike sport, then it is best to go there where is driven as you can also do a test drive.
so you can see if it makes the kids fun.
It's not all about the bikes, you need protective equipment, tools and some spare parts should always be included. Also, you should clarify in advance where can be driven, because every 2-3 hours drive to get to a track is not funny.

When you want 2 euro bikes used + spareparts + protectice equipment, then calculate 2-3000$

Get your kick with 2 stroke mix

I think he is underestimateing pocket bikes because of their size I am under the idea that maybe he thinks pocket bikes are something like Power Wheels for his kids to play with in the driveway he has no idea that one of those souped up suicidal racing Euro bikes would like nothing more than to come out from underneath some poor unsuspecting kid at 35 miles per hour plus sending them to the hospital or worse Lol I agree with you that he should go to a track and get his children proper training on a mini moto before just running out and spending thousands of dollars on one...

He may come online and prove me wrong but here's a short video of me riding on my flimsy Chinese pocket bike...

She will have to heavily insure them and roll them in bubblewrap I guess...

She seems pretty dead set on getting a couple of minibikes for her kids but it seems the ones she wants may not truley exist......



One thing shes gonna learn is even the HIGH DOLLAR stuff these days are still Made in CHINA or built with parts made from the chinese...Even her high dollar appliances in the kitchen and the car she drives.......LOL

Re: Im trying to buy 2 pocket bikes

I might try to get into talks with the execs at Polini and maybe Neimann Marcus to help spawn an idea dedicated for just the 1%ers of the world......LOL

I can just see it now...Gucci branded Polini's with real 24k gold trim and Diamond encrusted DM's trimmed in platinum..LOL

Theyd be a huge hit in Dubai....

Re: Im trying to buy 2 pocket bikes

Them kids are Not ready for a Euro bike, to much horsepower, a sure trip to the hospital. My Euro GRC -GP Avatar bike has 13hp, and they don't run that long either. They are racing bikes not ride up and down the block a 20 mph bike, it would destroy the engine. I just rebuilt the BZM engine in mine, $1,000. For $300 each buy that 4 stroke 40cc pocket bike for them to learn on. They look like Toys, but there not, even the China bike are Dangerous.

Empty Pockets Racing: The difficult we do, the impossible takes longer.....

When you can buy pocket bikes, first compare the store.
