    WTB -- kids quad bike

    Hi all, Was looking on tardme the other day for a birthday prezzie for my boy, Little 50cc non branded peice of shit quad bike out of Auckland.

    Decided id buy it and when i went on next they were gone -- classified expired (retard me never saved it to a watch list so dont have the sellers info)

    I recalled a thread on here where someone found them via a trade shop but they no longer stock them either !

    Anyone know where to look for these things ... ? they are like $399 from this crowd in auckland, sure they cant be the only place to stock them ....

    Ill chuck up a pic of the ones im talking about

    If they are the ones sold by Savebarn then stay away from them. I was warned off by a mechanic friend who was looking for his boy.

    Thanks Barefoot, i honestly cant remember if it was savebarn ...

    To be fair what i am looking at is a peice of shit, ^^ even from that picture it doesnt appear to be a quality peice of engineering. was more trying to avoid paying a grand plus to get him on it and then decide its not really his cuppa tea.

    There are other options Other Warrior 70 ATV 2013 | Trade Me that seem to be ok

    I know where you are coming from.
    12months ago I bought a secondhand better quality Chinese no name for my boy to test him on. He loved it, but it kept playing up, but it did confirm that it was worth spending the money of something better.
    So now I've bought a new one of these for him and know it will last him for a few years Other Aeon Mini Kolt 2005 | Trade Me

    Appreciate the input, To be fair id buy the one you put up there barefoot, just not keen to arrange transport from all the way down there to welly haha.

    Ive emailed the other crowd to see what they can do on freight down to wellington, hopefully i can have something here by the 16th or i wont be too popular.

    Although the alternative i found is twice the price i think it should last him a wee while longer,
