Makes me wonder if parts will be hard to get in the future like a new bike is now
Wonder not..........Just know your fears is slowly becoming a reality.....Back in 08 I was able to get parts for almost any pocketbike made......Now almost all of those parts are sold out without any replacements in sight...................

That's why I have been stocking up for 3 years now. CAM2 has too, we did get some great deals though.

The weird thing is, you can still find the chinese makes, like it you go through made-in-china.com or alibaba.com
They still list them, it's just ordering them and getting them freighted. they're usually around 250 a bike with 5-10 bike minimum.
i'd gladly but a couple. if some others wanted to, i'd be down to get 2 bikes.

^that one says watercooled but im pretty sure it's not

or $150 per unit @ 20unit minimum i'd get like 3 but then the issue would get shipping them and all that mess.

Youre gonna need a wholesalers and importers license with a business name to purchase those bikes...I had one under International Resources LLC but the EPA wouldnt allow me to take posession without dismantling them and selling them for parts requiring me to file for a dismantlers license/reg. cert. but was denied..If you decide to try getting the proper documentation Id check beforehand to make sure youre able to accept shipment without any EPA involvement and for the money youll pay you might aswell branch out and buy international items for rich people and charge them for the service..........Thats the only way I could find getting a return for the money I wasted..........Italian art/furniture goes fast

Besides, with the current market on euro bikes, your better off finding a used euro than getting 2-3 china w/c bikes... I can go pick up a running Blata/GRC/Polini for 400-600$ bucks anytime... just new parts are still very expensive.

If I was going to go for a Euro watercooled bike i'd go for a DM or BZM.
the DM's are pretty sweet but much harder to get a hold of... BZM only makes motors and accessories, not whole bikes. I'm sure they would be pretty awesome if they did... Their L/C motors baseline price around 1200$ US and go all the way up to 3000$. I like the Pasini's aswell... they are rare too though :/.

There is a DM GP1 for sale on the Quebec Minimoto site... 900 bucks with alot of BZM/Zocchi parts and many mods... freaking nice bike.

I have a GRC RSR with 10hp polini reverse in my shed... waiting for the right moment to rebuild it... needs ALOT of love this one, it's a 2006 and the guy I got it from had left it underneath his pattio for 3 years /facepalm. I've been working on my Cags for now because I am on a budget and just recently out of work since the machine shop I worked for got sold off to a competitor and everyone got layed off.. If I get another job soon then hopefully this summer I can get a few hundred bucks set aside for it.
