2005 Honda CRF50f. 4stoke 49cc 3 speed automatic clutch. Excellent condition, well maintained. Doesn't leak, rims straight, bushings/bearings all good. This is the perfect bike to learn on for kids age 5 to 7. My daughter could kick start it at age 4.

My daughter(now 6.5) has moved up to a 70cc. We purchased a 2003 HondaXR70 as a replacement for her. I installed a honda 50 rear shock to keep the seat low.
My son (now 8) learned to ride on it. And currently rides a pw80.

No rips in seat, grips are aftermarket red, tires are 1st replacement from OEM.
Couple scratches and a little wear on case from boots rubbing.

I have a jr helmet and pink outfit I will include with sale. Listing soon on CL for $800. $700 to RS club members. Cash talks.

Would it be too small for a 6 year old that is tall as an 8 year old?

As a first motorcycle, not not too small. Kids will be able to touch the ground and reach the brakes. At age 6 they are developing the skills and confidence to ride. Kick start the bike, pick it up after they fall, operate the front and rear brakes, learn to shift. Sort of like riding a strider before a "real" bike.

The difficult part of the next size up bike (CRF70 or XC70) seat height is 26.5 inches.

Nakman's boy is tall. He did a cut and turn on the bars of his 50 to get a more comfortable riding position.

We upgraded to the 70 for the larger diameter wheels and better fork.

My son is a tall 8 year old, and on his CRF70 he stands on his tip toes when stopped. I think the CRF50 is 3-4 inches shorter, so it would probably work for a couple of years to get your kid started. It helps to be able to firmly plant your feet on the ground in the beginning stages.

I think Gavin is exactly 50" tall now. He seems a tiny bit tall for the bike, but he's got confidence in that he can control it, so for now it's the right bike for him. I figure he can ride out the season with the 50cc, then we can think about moving up for next year.

Here he is boxing out Farnham on the dirt track... :)

and yes, turning the handle bars forward a bit made a little difference for sure
