Always good to hear of a kid that cares about something other than video games and cell phones, I actually overhauled my first engine when I was. 12 it was an old Tecuhmseh 5 HP HS50 gokart engine I slung a rod through the block on, walking through that rebuild with my Pap ( Grandpaw) and I was hooked.....!
Really hard to get kids interested in getting greasy and learning something about engines and such these day but I think the motorized bicycles are a great way to introduce a kid to having fun and learning to do something with their hands besides pushing buttons.
