They are no where near as small as a minimoto,
the seat hight on my bike is about 80cm.

cool, im all set to do a day at Geoff Mayes place in Norfolk this summer... he hires out 125 kwacka crossers for 110 or something, im just waiting till the weather clears.
ive been all road bikes till now, ive ditched the road bikes a few years ago and fancy a crack at motorcross/enduro.

looks like great fun.

Re: Anybody here into Pitbiking / Minibiking?

I have a nice 125cc. I don't know if i have any pictures of it perse, but here it is basically in brand new shape.

I've gotten some modifications, but i hope to either sell it for a 250 four stroke, or invest on some better rims and a new exhaust system. These bikes are ****ing incredible though. They do so much for such a small frame. Mine easily goes 50 - 55 mph. Before that, i was riding my old 1975 Honda CT-70 minibike. That bike could not be killed. It's been taken down three generations in my family. From my dad to my cousins and me, we've all broken bones on it, but it still runs.

Il have to take pictures come spring time i guess!

Nice bikes guys!
