Hello pocket bike planet, im a newbie from chesterfield va, i go to jamesriver high school and i work at Mcdonalds(only 15 y/o dont judge me lol) and i sometimes help around at my dad shop, i have recently recieved a pay check and i was looking at a x19 pocket bike on craigslist for $150 dollars, it seems to be tooken apart and the fenders are in ok shape, so i have a few qustions, are the frames on these things any good? A guy that works at my dad shop have a 01-02 cr250 that he wrecked and said i can get the whole bike for $235, he even offered to help me work on the swing arm and getting the motor in and ect, i was planning to use this bike as a sang drager to race in the motor cycle class at slades park so if anyone have any ideas please help me out, i suppose to go check out the x19 today or either tommorow after school.

Welcome to the planet. the X19 frame is not very sturdy, you're going to need to reinforce it and possible fab up a better swing arm. cr250 is probably a better deal if you're looking for something durable, but will cost you way more to rebuild. Good luck!

Welcome to the planet! Glad to see that you got your acct working and able to post now..

As for a X19 the cr250 wouldnt work in that frame. There has been members trying to fit those motors into the X15/18/19 frames. No one that ive seen has completed it. If you could complete it you would have to re-fab the frame to be able to handle the power out of the cr250 engine and move the fuel tank higher. if you wanna drag bike i would look for a x15 or x18 4speed with clutch then get a 150cc or something for a dirtbike and put that in it. Swheels is a member here on the forum and he has a killer bike. That thing is fast. Tons of mods on his.

Youll need $2K+ to do what he has done.

I have a X18 that im working on now. I got the bike for $200 and ive put another $250-300 into it and 2months of work on it. It still needs alot of work. If you like working on bikes and you have tools and time then i would fixer upper. If you dont have tools then i would buy a good running one and youll need to buy tools to work on it.

"80% work and 20% play" i got that from EPR.

Whatever you get i would read up alot on this forum and get to know how the bikes run and what breaks on them etc.
