Default My Sporty and My Mini

I am getting rid of my sporty, the clutch broke apart, and got into the transmission and engine. (No Idea how) popped holes in the outter and inner primary. Something else also cracked and it will need to be replaced. I have been quoted at 4-5g's to repair it. I have been given advice by a lot of people in my area that it is better to put money into a BT then a Sporty because it would be "Wiser". I am not too worried about riding much right now because of another bill I just got, but I dont plan to give up riding cold turkey, I bought a used beat up mini bike for 35 dollars, I got a few pictures of my niece on it, she liked it, Here they are. Yes this is off topic a bit, but she's a biker in making. She reached for the bars while I was pushing her across the sidewalk.

I want to also thank everyone who has helped me with questions I have had. I will post pics of whatever bike I get next.

Cute niece. Sorry to hear about your bike. You can get a brand new 1200cc Sporty crate motor for 3,600. I know that's a bunch of dough. But cheaper than the repair. Good luck.
