Hi all. I got a used pocketbike about a week ago and it needs some work and parts. I did get it running and driving after cleaning out the carb, but it still needs work and parts to be back to 100%. My goal is to get it to better than new condition, but I can't figure out what brand or model of bike it is for the life of me. I know it's at minimum 4 years old or so, but I think it may be as old as the early 2000's.

I'm not sure of engine size, but I was told it's a 70cc. I can't find any markings on the block, jug, or head that confirm this. After my research I assume it's a 110cc, since I don't see any 70cc versions sold... It also says Loncin on it in black lettering.

It is ~54" from the front of the front tire to the back of the back tire. The wheelbase from hub to hub is ~40". The tank height is ~24".

The tranny is a 4 speed auto clutch. It still seems to work great as well. Their is a factory appearing gauge that gives me RPM and gear indication. The tachometer is mechanical, and the gear indicator shows up digital as a number.

It looks as if it had a front disc brake setup, but it's no longer there. The caliper mounts are there, and their is a brake rotor, but no caliper, cable, or brake lever. The rear brake is a mechanical drum.

I took several pictures of it, some are better than others. I hope the description and pictures are helpful. Thanks in advance for any help.

Also from what I know they came in 50-70&110 cc motors that shifter is cool Tho I'd like one of those LOL with it being a standard shift I would assume the motor was replaced and possibly its a 110cc but can't say for sure maybe you two can work together because he needs to know how the stock wiring is post on his thread to see

Thanks for the information. Is this thing a pos? Should I get it going a little better and sell it? It seems like a pretty good bike, well at leasts once it receives a little TLC... I build custom cars and while some of the welds are not up to my standards, almost no one elses work ever is.:D It looks to me like it was a real nice unit when it was new, but it just needs a good light restoration. Any idea how old it is or what it cost new?

I just didn't like the rear swingarm setup and yes all these bike from that to the x15-22 none of the welds or bracing would be up to par for guys like us I do lots of builds myself and these bikes to me at least are real easy and cheap to do hell a big motor with all the goods will set u back 8-9 hun that's like a exhaust on my Suzuki or tires for my car lol as long as you don't need body parts or can fix them the rest is all parts you can find for 110cc pit bikes or one of the x bikes and other stuff is just metal we can cut weld bend fab to fix or make better like I said I just didn't like the rear of the frame where the swingarm goes seemed little cheese to me other than that is ok take a look at my pics for what I have done to my x19 to see what can be done with these

Some say they are, but the X18, is probably the best over all bikes for frame strength. You have to change alot of stuff to make them more road worthy. I just saw some new 4 spd manual X18 style bikes for around $800, that's a good price now days.

X18-X22 are bigger than a mid-bike, they are in the Super Bike Class, 1/2 scale I believe.
To me an X22 should be deemed midbike class seeings it really isnt any taller than my x1/x2.............And yes the X22s are big POS's..My frame piece thats bolted to the frame and holds the footpeg bracket on broke off on me and the front caliper broke in half on half of it when trying to do a stoppie...

The x18 frames arent too strong either>>>I remember a few years back when swheels did a head-on with a curb...he says it was at 10-15 mph and if itdid happen at that speed that frame was awfully tweaked....Blitz flatout pyledrived his into the asphalt and the frame survived the crash....

Whats funny is the x15/19 frames are the strongest frames but have the weakest swingarms....And vice-versa for the x18........awhile back I was toying with a notion to modify an x18 swingarm to fit an x15/19......

Theres only 1 x18 frame out there thats the strongest in the world.....A while back UnProracer messaged me asking me if there was a way to beef up the X18 frame for a bigger engine aswell as for racing....he took my advice and pulled it off with phenomenal looking work....You might wanna check his thread out.........The frame has way more strength to it now
