Thanks. To a Mom 16 on a bike is still a baby but yes, looking ahead, maybe so...

Won't let me take a pic outside so for now this is the best I can do. He does have gear- jacket and gloves btw.

Haha. Lots of bike thefts round here. They come in trucks at night and just lift 'em up and off. We are thinking of alternatives as you know I really dont want this in the hallway.

I have not seen the bike yet but the swingarm and the fork look stock. The original owner said he installed a big bore kit to go from the original 50cc to 80cc. A true ringer. :mrgreen:
He also tossed the airbox as well as installing the aftermarket pipe.
He also installed the semi ape hangers as well. :lol:

A 16 year old kid in Japan is limited to 50cc, I believe, unlike the US where they can get a GSXR-1000. :shock:
