Just so you realize the Piranha bike listed is not the bike in the Video that everyone is riding

for $800.00 your going to get a bike thats going to need constant attension and may or may not take 200lbs riders abuse so you will have limitations

SSR Has very decent entry level bikes

ya, i see but you have to admit that piranha bike doesn't look bad.. (for the money) (the question is how much is the reserve ?) ive actually looked around and people actually have good thing's to say about them + it has a gpx style motor :)
We have some close out 08 x2 140 and x2 90, Very solid bike and time tested. I also have a few demo x4 12x14 bikes as well.

Give me a call and we will see what we can do for you.

no there decent bikes also. we are a dealer of them as well. gpx is just a name so it isn't a gpx style it is the same motor just different logo or no logo on the side cases, there made by the same factory in china.

funny you should mention that i went to a local china atv/dirt bike dealer today and they had a used orion 29 there on sale for 850 (she said she could do 800) the thing was basically new the girl said that someone had bought the bike for there kid and he was to small for it so they returned it. im thinking about getting it here are some pics i took of it.

Stay far away from that second ebay bike. I have one and it took a lot to get it up to snuff. And even after all the time and money put into it, it is nowhere near the bike my OGM is. SGR did have the ogms at a fantastic price. I don't know if they still do. Pitster and SSR also have some great bikes for the money.

Please trust my experience on this. Spend a little more now and get a good bike. I got both my bikes from SGR and Jeremiah bent over backwards to make the first one (like in that second ebay auction) right, but it was a nightmare for both of us. At every turn it was crappy parts and incompatible parts and frustration at the poor quality of each piece I came across.

In comparison, when he sent me my OGM it was the complete opposite. I totally disassembled the bike before riding it to locktite and grease everything that needed it and put good fork oil in, etc. Everything that was wrong with the first bike was wonderful on the OGM. Every part that didnt fit right or was crappy quality on the 138 was perfect on the OGM. Everything fit, everything was high quality. I can't begin to describe the difference. I am a good 220 lb at the moment (and that's without gear) and the OGM handles everything I throw at it. Jumping, ruts, whoops. It just works and holds together. There are lots of bikes out there that LOOK like they would be OK, but when you really tear them down, they are junk. Pitsters are also quality, I have worked on them as well. Thumpstar, Medina, OGM and Pitster are all VERY close to the same bikes (yes there are differences, but not major) and they are all well made, quality bikes. Get one from a GOOD vendor. NOT from ebay. SGR, Tbolt are two of the best out there. Give them a call. I have heard Medina also has great customer support.
