Looking into around 1980 ish 50cc dirt bike ( For Fun) but don't know the first thing about what I should be looking for, any suggestions? ( ANd get a bigger bike doesn't count ) I want to spend less then $500

The're supre hard to find for under $800... they're so sought after. I've been trying to find a suitable pit-bike for a long time now. I think I might just spring for a newish Z50.

I found a 1980-1 for $500 obo, new chain, sprocket, and seat. What would be a good offer? Would 300 be too low?

500 isn't too high.. I would try for a deal, but don't feel bad if you have to pay 500.

why not just find something like an old xr80? That should be cheaper!

I was thinking that too.. the Z50's are in high demand all the time, and XR should be easier to find, and it has a real manual tranny with clutch as well.

My uncle has two suzuki ds 80's and they suprised me. Not too big but a fair bit of power for suck a small package. They go about 85km/h too.
