Great price for one of these off-road bikes. Cheapest I could find elsewhere was around £300+

** They also have a Mini Moto Pocket Bike for only £79.99 + £19.75 postage

Pocket bikes are all the rage these days, and if used safely, are incredible fun. These pocket bikes are tributes to the Yamaha R1 Super Bike, but aren't made by Yamaha. Instead, they're pocket-bike replicas of the Yamaha R1, miniature motorbikes that are a fraction of the size of the real thing, but much more fun!

The Replica Yamaha R1 Super Pocket Bike boasts a powerful 49cc two-stroke, air-cooled engine. Safety is important for all pocket bikes, so the Replica Yamaha R1 Super Pocket Bike has a strong steel frame construction and powerful disc brakes, front and rear, for heavy-duty stopping power. Our pocket bike has 13 wheels with tubeless wet tyres, a chain-driven drive system and an electric key start, with a hand-pull back-up starter. For fuel, it runs on one part two-stroke oil to 25 parts unleaded petrol. Mix it yourself in the bottle supplied

Features at a glance:

Strong steel frame construction
Rear hugger (splash guard)
Foldaway foot rests
Under seat chrome exhaust pipe
Three gauges - speedometer, gas and signal odometer
Ignition key
Horn
Front and rear lights
Brake and indicator lights
Kickstand
Includes basic tool kit for assembly
Includes mixing bottle for fuel mixing

Safety Rules:

Over 14s only (under 18s should only ride with adult supervision).
Not road legal use only on car parks, private land and pocket bike tracks.
Always wear protective gear helmet, gloves, knee pads, etc.
Pocket bikes are designed to be used for racing only. Not for use on public highways.
Pocket Bikes are not designed to carry passengers. Never ride with passengers.
Avoid large hills. This may overheat the motor.
Avoid curbs, cobblestones, grates and other bumpy surfaces.
Never ride your Pocket Bike in poor visibility. The Pocket Bike is not equipped to be operated in dark or low light conditions.
Before each use, verify that there are no loose or missing parts, and that the brakes are working properly.
Don't ride in wet or icy conditions. Wet weather impairs traction, braking, and visibility. The risk of accident is dramatically increased in wet conditions.
Ride responsibly at all times.
Never tie or hold your dog lead whilst riding your pocket bike

Surely this is one of those products where you DON'T want to buy the cheapest one on the market.... Cold for this reason.

Now that looks like a bargain I would love to play around with. Nice find.

Cold for me - where the hell can you ride it and be legal?

"Not road legal use only on car parks, private land and pocket bike tracks."

Now this is a Proper Chav toy.

a good bargain considering it comes with 13 wheels. Ive just looked on ebay and the extra 11 wheels would almost allow you to break even AND get a free pocket bike.

Not as good as my GO-PED though...

It's a typo. it should say 13 inch wheels :thumbsup:

This is what happens if you get caught on one, it gets crushed

You can get Mini-Moto's for the same price delivered here, and some better looking ones too like ]this one
the full list of their Mini-Moto's are ]here

Just confiscate it and sell it on, why spend money crushing these things? I simply don't see the point, especially with cars - what a waste of CO2 spent making it that could have been saved by just auctioning or selling on the car.

This seems like a cheap way to get a motor and some wheels for use in other projects though ... like some form of adult lego technic / scrapheap challenge mashup.

Their mini motos start from £114.95 + p&p - where does that make it cheaper than £79.99 + p&p?? If you're comparing prices to the main one in the post, the Yamaha replica, it's a Pocket bike midi moto, not a mini moto - see ]here

.
that's what happens when anyone weighing more than 3 stone tries to ride one

I remeber when these chinese mini motos first came out, i payed £300 for one. Now the full fairing models are only £80. They are not of great quality, but when you get one, make sure everyhting is tight, possibly change the sparkplug for an NGK, and even try running it on a good quality 2T oil at 50/1. Mine was pretty quick considering, some advice though, dont take it apart as the plastic manifold cracked as soon as i did this. and screws and bolts round easily, just be happy with it. They are serioulsy looked down upon within the minimoto community as they have the expensive blata, polini, pasini, zpf etc models that can cost £1000s, but you can have just as much fun on one of these. Go to minimotoclub.co.uk to find out more. You should ride on a track,

( I personally dont think people riding in empty fields, car park or other areas is a problem, but the law and curtain twitching kill joys do)

BTW the model at the top is refered to by the un informed as a midi moto. It isnt, it actually is just a fun bike with suspension. There are no racing classes for them to my understanding. A true midi moto is basically a slightly taller and more powerful mini, like the blata origami b1. Also, if your a little more serious about getting a mini moto then there are some better chinese mini/midi moto bikes out there based on water cooled polinis, blata origami, blata elite. I remember a nice replica of the polini 911 which had parts interchangeable with the real thing.

But if you just want a more practical fun bike then pit bikes are far better. They have reliable 4 stroke eninges based on honda cub engines also, and have front a rear hydraulics, manual gear changes etc.

Chavy toy! YAY! ...

Before I buy it there are something's I would like to know
1)what's it's top speed
2) does it have any gears
I only have a private drive which I could ride on, there is a car park but there's a police station right next to it, would the police have a problem with me riding it there
