    Finally I have found one that is not beat to death. They're very hard to find in decent conditon and it's close so I don't have to worry about $400+ shipping costs. I would like to start racing them. I know if I raced full sized bikes I would kill myself in 2 years. I used to own one. I should have never sold it. Anyone else already own one?.....D

    it's actually a bit under priced so far...there is a huge demand for them...but people often get them confused with the little mini bikes you can buy at any dept. store now days....it's like comparing a dept. store Mongoose to a Foes...D

    That's nice. I have two 50cc cafe racers, a Sachs and a Guazzoni. Mind are kind of rusty...

    ysr's are cool! i've watched a couple local races - looks super fun. i'd love to give it a try. i seriously contemplated getting one in my sportbike days - great low-risk knee dragging antics. buy it!

    thats not actually a mini moto, its quite a lot bigger (a midi moto?)
    Its also slower than the polini mini bikes and stuff like that.

    Hey Donnie the YSR's are fun.
    a guy i use to roadrace with had one with a CR80 motor in it and man that thing was scary.
    Anyway, google up a japanese firm called Moriwaki if you wind up picking one up.

    Those were all over the place back in high school. I thought they were cool, but too much money. I know people who put way too much money into them.

    I would look at craigs list. I bet you could find one there for cheap enough. I'm going to save up for an FX Bike myself :D
