Sturdy frame for adult weight/size

What’s the best frame out there for An adult size weight around 180lb? I been riding on a stock cat and the frame has cracked on both sides near the rear in front of the rear tires. Is there a brand I can buy right out the box that’s sturdy to support my weight? I see adult racers on cag 49cc size pocket bikes racing around tracks.

The euro bikes are going to be the way to go the China steal CAGs will crack and are dangerous if you push them to hard euro bikes have way more power and in general are way better.

They used to make a frame called The Lucky 7 it was a heavy duty CAG frame I haven't seen one for sale in years 2014 and when I do I'm instantly buying it...

Any of the frames work for 180 lb. Like others have said you really need to look the frames over well all the time. Generally they are supposed to hold 240 plus. I'm 185 and have been riding 25 different CAG frames. Yes the Euro frames are better. You can make a Chinese frame just as good. But would require a welding and fabricating. I haven't tried to do any of that yet. And a Chinese tool based engine will be fast enough for you when modified correctly.

The cheapest way to get a realy good frame is the banshee SHO bike. Very stable, it wouldn't break.

It is also always a question of how much money you want / can spend.

All of those bikes, Blata 2.5 being the smallest, Blata Elite 13, the polini bikes,
All of those are about the same size. All within 6 in of each other. So if you think the elite 13 is too small then you need to step up to the X Series, get a 49cc X1 or X2. Or step up to the bigger x 15. All those bikes are probably 12in longer and definitely taller.
I'm 6ft 185 but I am very flexible so riding these with my knees flared out is easy

That's not correct there are two classes of pocketbikes, one class is mini mostly used from junior riders. Bikes like Blata Elite, Blata 2.5,Polini 910, Stamas Tecno and the other class is midi for adult riders with bikes like Polini 911, Blata B1, GRC gp racing, DM GP 1.

True but 95% of those are mostly unavailable to us here. I picked up a Pelini 911 dream bike. Took me five years to even find one. The only thing readily available are any of the small Chinese cag's or the x-series bikes. That is exactly why I stated the way I did. I also have a Blata 2.5 which took me 4 years before that to find one. Since I picked up my 2.5 I have seen four others go up for sale but they are all $500. Too much especially considering the condition they were in

Are you going to stick with the elite? Or look for a bigger bike?

I bought the elite 10+ years ago when we had a racing club out here.

You can find them in nice shape for 2 to 3 k with a title lost title makes them worth about 800$

Another option is a grom 3500$ is MSRP that's fuel injection...
