No not yet. We are starting from scratch again. He has a PW50 but it is full auto and no foot brake. We will be on the "BOX" learning how to use the clutch and shift correctly before it will hit the ground with him on it.

When he got the PW50 within 5 minutes he managed to forget to let off the throttle and busted through a chain link fence. So I am a little reluctant to just let him have at it right now. He will be practicing for a while then we will go to a big open field to train in (and crash). As you can see in one of the pictures he is easily distracted and let the bike go down just sitting there. He got to talking to his mom and tried to watch a Harley Davidson drive by the house and forgot all about the bike he was on.

Cool The bike looks great!

I tought my son how to use to the clutch by putting the front wheel at a mound of dirt and had him use the clutch to roll a few inches up and then pull it in to roll back down the mound. It helps them understand how the clutch works.

Nice work.

I been following 'cause my own son is five and we are both looking forward to his motorcycling days.

Also reminds me of the things my Dad did for me...I remember that 'Zuki RM60 like it was yesterday...your son will remember this forever too.

Some time on the box to practice clutch and shifting. He thought it was going to be a hop on and go kinda bike....WRONG. He said his hand and right leg is sore from the clutch and kick starting it. We moved from the box to the ground against the wall for some friction point feel. Thats when the leg started hurting when he kept stalling it.

OH well more practice before riding.
