That gsxr gets up and moves I bet. I started riding back in 1970 on a honda 50. I made it all the way up the ladder to a 900cb custom. I had a 50, 70, 100,125,250,350,360,450,several 750 fours and a 900. That 900 was the coolest one I had. It was a 10 speed dual range tranny. It started life as a dresser and when I was done it looked like a HD sportster. Here is a link to a site that I have before and after pics of it posted.

Those little mini trail 50's have really gone up in price. A inexpensive option would be one of those little 50cc china knockoffs that are on the market. I bought one for my grandson, it was the 50cc 5 speed quad by Lifan and I only paid 5 hundred for it new.

Those little knockoffs are exact copys of the honda 50 engine. I had a friend who is a honda guy look it over and he can see no difference in the two. If it lasts as long as a honda it will be great. This pic was taken when he was 6 and he is now 8, so he has almost outgrown it now. Next year I will probably be buying him a new toy to replace this one. Now, to sell it, trade it in, or keep it for the 3, almost 4 now, grand daughters. What to do, what to do, HMmmmmm.
