when i bought it about 5 years ago from a mate who is the 3rd gen in the family to run a local motorcycle shop for years it was his first bike he is now 30 odd yr old he said that he thought it was a 25cc. i cant find much at all on the net about it. since i put it on ebay 2 days ago i have had a man from ireland call me wanting to buy it asap.
i dont know weather to hold on to it if its that rare ? do you know any one on here knows about these bikes ?

You might PM bigdarren and see if he will set you up with his buddies phone number. No one is more likely to know about them better than someone who has one.

Holy huge pictures Bat man. I would keep it personally. Did you find anything out from Bigdarren yet?

yes bigdarren replyed to my pm and gave me a link to luke on club atc. i didnt register but sent a email to admin on club atc but email failed came back as failure. so i pmed luke on here as big d said he was called luke on here so i looked up on the list and found 1 luke there were others but not just luke as there name so i hope its the right one.
some people on here are saying keep it dont sell but will it be worth alot of money in years to come.? from what i can find on the net there omly seems to be 2 others that i can find.
my youngest has nearly growen out of it and likes to ride his bro pw 50 and my eldist has nearly out growen the pw so if i sell this that will give me cash to get a hardly used bigger bike py 90 kawasati chineese rubish that i have seen near to me. he is only 8 and i dont think it will matter that much to him if its a chineese bike. or not. but unfortunately it will drop in price over the years that my eldst boy then my youngest have it for. proably for another 5 years till my youngest growes out it. proably by then he will be 11/12 and want a proper moto x bike or my monkey bike (no chance)..
why you say not to sell. please give me some reasons if you owned it why.?

I wouldnt sell it because I have never seen one in person before. By the time your grand kids are old enough to drive you might be able to buy one of them a car with the money you might get out of it. That would earn you some major Grandpa points.

i am in 2 minds cant decide. my mate has 10 atc 70s and 1 big red he had a track 30 years ago where i live and you could pay to ride on them. then he sold up after there were deamed unsafe and banned in the uk for public to pay and ride due to tipping and rolling over issues and insurance. then about 7/8 years ago he started collecting and buying them up again as spaires repaire and tells me they are getting expensive to buy used parts for when he buys a project ones to restore and make good. it was only a coule of years ago we meet up with the kids and had a day in a field on all the bikes maliguti and the hondas. it looked like a blst from the past that day. great times for all. i loved drifting the big red on the oval trak we made up.

I wouldnt sell it because of how rare it is. I have always not wanted to sell something rare to someone I dont know because even if that one thing doesn't mean much to you, it sure does to other people and if the person you sell it to destroys it, its kinda like you ruined it, and you then have to bear that guilt. Something I couldn't do.

Follow me? In the same relative concept of have one of the last things then just ruining it all for a little bit of money.

However, do as you please if you want to. Sorry if I seem like a condescending ass.

last night i sent off a few emails to birmingham motorcycle musuem and dirt bike rider mag and trials and moto cross news and motor cycle news just to ask if they know a value / rareity etc of these bikes or any experts who know about these bikes.
i had 1 reply today and here it is.

Hi Christian,

I’ve never seen one before but judging by this post is isn’t worth all that much…
