Doodlebug Mini Bike - Chinese engine

15 years ago

I've heard the phrase "you get what you pay for!".

But I'm considering the purchase of a new $250.00 mini bike from Quality Farm & Fleet. Just something to putz around the yard with (3 acres) and for my little son to ride as he gets a little older.

My question: Does anyone have any experience with these little Chinese made 4 stroke motors? I do maintain my equipment pretty well and would hope to get at least 4 or 5 seasons out of it, at which point I could re-power it with a newer B&S or Honda, etc. The frame looks nice, the welds look pretty clean, it has a cable operated disk brake. I think the value is there at $250.00 if I can get 4 - 5 years from that motor then replace it.

I'd like to hear any of your thoughts on this.
