Looks like they basically took an auto pocketbike , and put rear pegs on it . Then took off the rear taillight and made a custom round 12 bar , that really can't be that strong . An auto pocketbike already has a hand brake for the rear .

If you are going to buy one , price out 110cc four stroke pocketbikes first . Or go to pocketbikeplanet.com and do some searching and ask for info .

I'm guessing these guys already knew how to stunt and these are their toys . Doing circles on a pocketbike isn't as easy as it looks . You can learn all that on a fiddy .

A used honda crf 50 with a 88cc kit , and a hand brake , and a rear street tire is gonna be worth more money than that x18 in the long run . The 88cc kit would give you some power .

Once you learn a basic wheelie on a little bike , you can progress on to other tricks . You are gonna be in for a surprise if you think you are going to hop on a little fiddy and do a nice wheelie in an hours time .

And if you call this company , i would ask which style bike they woud send you and what type of engine , and what type of clutch (manual 3 or 4 , semi auto 3 "like a honda 50 , or a auto centrifical clutch .

In the video on their site , the vid is from 2007 , and the bike looks like an x-6 . That bike is an auto clutch . And i believe you could have gotten 3 different motors . a 50cc , a 70cc , an a 110cc . all four strokes . I dont think they make those bikes anymore .

In the three pics they have on their site , those are x-18's and those are 110cc four stroke , and are manual clutch .

I was looking at those too. It's about $900 total with shipping. So is it worth the money? Or just get a used 50-110.

you can get x18's all day for 600 shipped or pick one up on craigslist for cheapness if you are patient

Give them time and a few rookie drops. They'll be wishing like hell they bought a Honda 50, LoL.........Been there, done that, sold the X18 and bought a crf50....Smartest thing i've ever done, hehe.....=-)

Those rear hydraulic brakes dont hold up too the rookies either. Brake control means soo much, to a newbie who has NO control, they ride the rear brake wayy to much. Those rear calipers get hot and the pistons seize up inside them. Then u have to find another and all that BS.........Its amazing how easy i can find honda 50 parts though. Just snap my fingers and WOW, they are everywhere, hehe....=-)

Yes sir, and having so many aftermarket parts to chose from is the other advantage to owning a Honda 50. There literally isnt an aftermarket part for those bikes that you cant buy...Now try buying all those aftermarket parts for a mid-bike, LoL.....And on another note........You get what you pay for. Who cares if i have a $600 front end on my crf50, LoL......You can bet your azz it'll take a beating and get back up and ask for another one....=-)

thr front ends on the mids are fine....change the oil in them and theyre sweet....my **** does good ....theres alot of aftermarket parts for the mids ....see what you gotta remember is that a mid has the parts based off of other factory models so most of the parts can be upgraded no problem....my engine hasnt blown and the frame hasnt bent **** rolls straight as it did from day 1
