Mini bikes are miniature versions of motorbikes. These are a special kind of power toy similar to specialized, non-utility motor vehicles like chopper mini bikes and go-carts.
Mini Pocket Bike Parts
Today mini bikes are not rough and ready home made machines, as they were when they were first made popular by the dirt racers. Mini pocket bikes are much more specialized, and there are many specializations available. In keeping with mini bikes enthusiast’s needs and requirements, thousands of shops selling mini bike parts have opened up worldwide which most of them are often accessible online.
Mini bike parts include engine parts, frame parts and performance parts.
Mini Bike Engines and Mini Bikes Frames
The mini bike engines are somewhat similar in power (though often different as far as built is concerned) to the engines of the lawn mowing machines. Like lawn mowers, mini bike engines are often four strokes. However, this does not mean that mini sport bikes can be built using a lawn mower engine. This is because the engine shaft in lawn mowers is aligned in a different direction.
However, there are numerous improved and specialized engines available in the market today. Double stroke or two-stroke engines are also available, and the strength of the engines is usually about 49cc, but you can still found some 110cc engines on super pocket rockets.
The mini bike frame includes the outer shell of the mini bike, the seats and other visible accessories. The mini bike frame is important because it holds the whole mini bike together, supports the rider’s weight and most importantly defines and determines what the mini bike will look like. The mini bike’s look or rather, style statement will depend upon the kind of frame one chooses for it.

These are the parts of a custom mini bike that will boost and enhance its performance. Performance mini bike parts like air filter, foot pegs, adjustable brake lever, rear sprocket with sixty six tooth, adjustable steering dampener, soft racing tires, air filter, carburetor with fuel adjustments, etc.
Apart from the essential mini bike parts mentioned before, there are a number of accessories available in the market now to enhance and enrich the user’s mini bike experience.
