I am looking out for a DT50 for my son ready for his 16th.

The old DT50 form the 80s has drum fronts and I was taken by the later bikes with front discs eg the DT50SM.

Does any one have any knowledge on using a DT50SM as a trail bike.

I am assuming getting spare wheels is simple enough - but anything else I should be looking for?

The Sym or rieju 50 all appear to be generic yam engines. Cheap as chips and very capable off road

I bought my lad a Rieju 50 mrt.
Bit tall for him but he is loving every minute of trail riding on it.Geared it down a tad,but it copes really well with everything.
Hope you get Josh sorted soon.

My Honda PXR50 will be for sale at the end of the summer, but I am using it at the moment.
