looking around for one of the small surrons for a friend.
Half of the bikes listed look like scams. do these scum actually get people to send them money somehow? How?

X160

X160 for $2100 asking. This is the Surron with smaller wheels, motor, suspension, and battery. My kid rides one. Can be lowered even farther with a different rear spring.

AFAIK, Luna never imported/sold the little version. The Segway X160 was the only way to get it in the US.

If you need help lowering it, I have info on how to drop the rear shock. I got a lighter (250#) rockshox spring that is more suitable to a kids weight. Bought a shorter one so the shock sat down in its stroke. There was a gap from the spring to the shock collars when you lift the bike (negative preload?). I would slowly turn the collars every couple mo as the kid grew. He just grew to the point of running no preload and has the bike at full height now. I do wish I could figure out how to fit a steering damper on a single crown bike fork. Keep thinking I should just drill/tap the frame and lower crown for a cheap piston damper style like how road motorcycles do it. I also cut 3cm off each bar end - stock they are too wide for kids.

Is that really the going rate for a clapped out, scraped up, non-running 23 year old XR650? O.o
