Idaho Anyone parting with a cheap kids bike?

Recommended Posts

My soon-to-be 6 yo daughter has been bugging us for her own dirt bike for quite some time now, and she has basically given us an ultimatum: She either wants a dirt bike for her birthday... or a Barbie Dream House! She is abnormally tall for her age (4' 2") and could reach the ground on anything from a 50 to a 110, but every CL ad in the area seems to have a typo, specifically following the dollar sign. :D My best option at this point is a ttr 90 for $650, three hours away. We just can't swing that at this point.

Does anyone know of, or have a kids' bike that is in a minor to major state of disrepair for cheap? I'm not afraid to delve into a big project like this, as long as most of the parts are there. I just need something to get her started, preferably with an auto clutch, but I won't be choosy.

Please help me keep my little tomboy from crossing over to the dark side of Barbies and princesses!

The pw's are almost too tiny. She sat on one a few months ago and her knees hit the bars. Although I might look into that as a last resort and/or a flip sale. Thanks!

I have an old mx100 yamaha for $400. Actually runs and rides pretty good. Not exactly a powerhouse but perfect for almost every kid in the nieghbor hood.

      Hi, all. DRZ-400S rider from Kodiak, AK here. I'll have a week to burn next week and just purchased ferry tickets to/from Homer so I can do a solo trip on the mainland. I know it's a little late in the season, but does anyone have any suggestions for places I can go? 
      Some places I've looked at:  East End Road (Homer), Crown Point Mine Trail (Kenai Peninsula), Hatcher Pass, McCarthy/Kennicott Mine, Chicken, Denali Hwy, etc.
      I know it's a little late in the season, so some of these areas may not work (McCarthy/Kennicott comes to mind).  It will be my first time riding a motorcycle on mainland Alaska since 1999-2000.  Any suggestions/advice are greatly appreciated!

      Anyone know of any good shops that offer vapor blasting or water blasting or vapor honing. It's all the same thing just different names.
      Looking to have some aluminum street bike frames done so need a place that can handle larger pieces. 
      Some where close to Seattle east side Tacoma that you might recommend. 
      I found the motoshed in queen Anne but they can't do larger items.
