The motorcycle makes up a big and respectable part of automobile history. They are today incredibly popular all over the world. There are those who want a motorcycle, but just can't afford the massive expense of a full size one since a full size one costs over $25,000. A mini-chopper is what you need. Some say they are not exactly the same thing as mini-motorcycles which are usually slightly bigger and considerably less comfortable. However, for the purposes of this article they are the same thing. Mini-choppers or mini-motorcycles are also known as "Pocket Bikes" and/or “Super Pocket Bikes”.
Mini chopper bikes are available for every person be it male and female. The modifications and styles vary from bike to bike. If you have something in your mind that will set your bike apart from others, you can order a custom designed bike for yourself. This requires a certain level of passion and of course some knowledge. Maintaining and customising a custom designed mini chopper bike is so much cheaper as compared to a real chopper. Also, when the owner grows tired of the existing mini chopper bike, it's also much easier to buy another one by easily selling it away.
The mini-chopper shares some similarities with a motor scooter. They are complete with engines from 50cc to 250cc, horsepower, and gas mileage about the same size and amount as a motor scooter. However, in appearance, mini choppers are pretty much exact replicas of big choppers, just on a smaller scale; about ¾ the size. With both you will find low-riding frames, extended front wheels, and lots of chrome. In essence, you will get on the surface everything you want with a motorcycle, just a tad smaller and at a very much cheaper price tag.
And unlike the less favored motor scooters, mini choppers come with standard shift engines. That will be something to consider if having an automatic transmission is important to you. If so, you will just want to get a motor scooter since all of them are automatics. If you would rather go that route, know that 50cc motor scooters will cost about the same as as 110cc to 125cc mini-choppers. That is not the case with motor scooters with cc's above that. These Mini chopper bikes are much cheaper than the real thing, easier to maintain, and are safer to ride. You can choose to ride either an electric mini chopper or a gas mini chopper. For instance 200cc mini-choppers cost a lot less than 150cc motor scooters.
When you are riding an electric or a gas mini chopper bikes, make sure that they are certified for use on public roads before taking them out to the streets. There are different regulations in different states regarding the use of mini chopper bikes on public roads. You may wish to ask your insurance agent or check with the seller before purchasing your mini bike. Otherwise, check with your local automobile law enforcement agency.
After a proper practice, you may choose to ride the gas mini choppers. Whether you want to keep the old minibike is completely up to you. Gas mini choppers bikes have the capacity to travel at much faster speeds. That means the bikes also require a more expert rider to handle the extra power. They are very much like a standard chopper bike, but that they are smaller in size. Riding a mini chopper is not about racing for chopper fans. Rather, it's about the lifestyle. There is a somewhat relaxed feeling to riding chopper bikes. And that's what help build an intensely and strong loyal fan base for chopper bikes.
In addition, mini-choppers are relatively easy to build yourself, making them even cheaper to obtain than they already are. There are very good instructions and instructors out there who will assist you through the process. There are many good sites and instructions to be found right on the internet. But be careful, because there are also instructions and instructors on the internet that are not quite so good. If you want a cheap bike, but can’t afford the best mini-chopper around there are custom mini chopper manufacturers who will make one to your specifications. All this being said, please take this away: If you want a motorcycle, there is no excuse not to acquire one on the pretext that they are too expensive.
