I had no idea how deep this somewhat unknown sport is, I am impressed by some of the bikes. I have one question and please don't kill me here. why do some guys spend unbelievable money to build bikes almost the same as like a kx 65 which you can get brand new for 3k. I do think the customs are bad ass looking I would love to see some in action. I live in northeast florida anyone know where you can see these kinds of bikes roosting? I live near pax trax in bunnell and i know they do pitbike races from time to time, do bikes like the ones in the 50 of the month thread go to races like pax holds?

anyway this is a kick ass site for 50's

we build bikes like that because we're stupid. lol but in pitbike races you have to have horizontal motors with open frame. can't have a frame or motor like a kx65.

I think I had better run now. I have way to many expensive hobbies already, I do see the draw to this. I wish we had some more tracks near me that were geared for this use. I just bought a crf 450R and got back into motocross after a pretty bad wreck 3 yrs ago. I thought this might be safer but i have been looking at you tube videos, I think these can be equally dangerous maybe even more so.





is there a website on this owc and ace tracks? something with pics of the track

Right broken tibula.

Broke two bones in my hand.

Broken right arm.

Broken right collarbone.

3 concussions

Torn PCL,LCL, and MCL in right knee.

and Broken right ankle.

My right side is just effed up lol. now heres the list of minibike injuries.

Pitbikes are a sickness. You get a bike and all you want to do is get something better for it. Then $4500 later your sitting there with your finished product thinking where the hell did all my money go.......



hahaha
