Hello everyone, I'm new to this site. Thought I could get some answers here. I bought a pit bike. Not sure exact model or year, was told it was a lifan. I'll try to post a picture of this as well. Where do I find parts? Is there a type a honda parts that fit it? Like crf80 parts? I'd like to put a makuni carb on it. The guy strengthened rear end for 245 lb rider and I'm 150 on a good day. So the rear sets real high when I ride it. It doesn't have engine cradle so I'm worried about the pegs being bolted to the motor, can I just but a cradle and put in it? If anyone could identify the bike it'd be great. Thanks! Land vehicle Vehicle Motorcycle Supermoto Transport

You can't really get a cradle for that bike since it's based on the honda style cases.... The picture you posted does not really show a good picture so hard to tell what it is. He must have looped out that bike hard the rear sub frame is bent bad... That is based on the honda crf50 so there will be some parts that directly bolt on...

That's what I thought, but I checked the rear, nothing is stressed everything is straight that's how it's designed it looks like, or someone has a very professional looking creation. The plastics are even shaped in that up tail position

Did you pull the seat and body work??? Because I can almost tell you that's bent.... The seat is suppose to be a tall flat seat, it has a complete curve in it from the frame being bent... But I can be proven wrong... In my attached picture is how most Chinese bikes look... It's a similar model to yours it's a ssr125

Yeah I'm sure you guys are right it's probably bent beyond what I can see, because I've never seen it created like that unless the last owner wanted it that way. I'll take it apart and look. Right now the most worry is getting it all cleaned up and the shock set up. I'll check the frame and if it's bent I'll put torch heat too it for an easy bend. Thanks allot for the help guys really appreciate it!!

The rear shock I would be looking to see what the coil says on it. If it's like 1100lbs or what then look for a softer spring and throw it on... Or measure the eye to eye on the shock and find a good used one.

If you bend the thing back with heat your going to lose most of the strength in that part of the sub frame so you might want to weld in gussets, and that too keep it from cracking or bending again in that area. Cold bending is the only way to keep the strength in the metal.
