Laugh My daughters first Thumper

Hell yeah, been wanting to get her one for a minute now, got 3 kids, shes the oldest (6 years old), i want to keep this thing for a long time, have all my kids learn to ride on it.

This little Honda is great, 2001 XR50R, has some nice mods on it,
Big Gun full exhaust, jetted, Uni air filter, BBR throttle assembly, BBR tall bar set up, stiffer rear spring, Honda tall seat, etc,

It REALLY does start up on first kick, EVERY SINGLE time, needs 1/2 choke for a few seconds and is ready to go, got A REALLY REALLY good deal on it from a neighbor who never used it (still has the original tires on it from 2001), even with 150+ pounds on it, it still goes about 40 mph, this little bike is FAST for what it is


Ive been trying to get the wife to say yes to getting one of these for the kids for a long long time, she was always bike blocking me big time, so i just went and bought it anyways


Just one issue tho, since my girl is only 6 years old and weighs 50 pounds, she cannot start (kick start only) the bike by her self, its a combo of not enough speed/power to crank it over, so i have to do it for her, will have to work with her on that, otherwise she loves it, rides it great and cant wait to just ride !

Looks super clean.

Has your wife agreed, or are you in the doghouse?
