    No reserve, so whatever the highest bid is, is the price it will be sold for.

    Looking at the other bikes sold, I bet someone will raise the bid, but still, thats cheap. I was going to get one of those, before they started taking them, away around here. Plus they are SOOOOO small, so I just bought a Honda 50, MUCH more fun!

    My neighbor used to race those. They're retarded small. Kinda funny to see his 250lb redneck dad tear ass down our road on that thing.

    In one of the adds I was looking at, there was one that was 45 pouunds! Must be pretty sturdy to hold 5x it's weight (250LBS)

    Whats the difference between a honda 50, and these 49cc bikes? Why did they take them away from where you live.
    LOL I'm not the biggest guy...5'10 or so, 170 pounds...so it wouldn't be as bad as some other people.

    For the price...even if it's 100 dollars...plus 120 for shipping (they;re located in Canada) it's cheaper to buy one from there, than locally...

    Input?

    For the price I can't really go wrong (unless it grows high...but the one for 4.95 has only 1 day out of the 4 days it was up!)
    I'll talk to my mom soon.
    What do I need in order to get something off ebay? is there a site that teaches you about ebay? All I know is watch out for buyer feedback...

    If you have a Ebay account, just bid. I also have a pay-pal account too pay for my items.

    Fixed shipping is $120 to canada, and $150 to america. That is in US dollars. Standard shipping rip off. Don't buy it.

    I don't know - sounds like a deal at $5 even with the shipping.

    Why is it still a rip off? They're the only ones I found from B.C. Canada, and they have a really low price.
    Even if shipping is bad, its still a good deal? :confused:

    A honda 50 is

    A. Much bigger
    B. 4 stroke
    C. 3 speed
    D. tons of aftermarked parts for them
    E. Suspension
    F. you can actually fit on the thing.

    The take them away here, because its CA. And there so small, cars cant see you. Heck, id buy it for a few hundred bucks. These look to be the medium sized ones, not the teeny tiny ones.

    So these ones are just a frame with tires and drive/power train bolted on? No suspension?
    I think these are the tiny ones, they have 10" tires and aren't very long. Unless you have an example of the teeny tiny ones?
    How "much bigger" are they? Could get a honda, but they are much more $$ I think. what kind of aftermarket parts? is it a "road" bike, or dirtbike?

    I like it, probably because i'm younger though.
    Those ones you posted aren't bad, but i'd rather get a big one if I was going that route.
