I never been excited by pocket bikes (my 16 years old son is, of course). But when I saw this one in Cincinnati at the V-Twin Expo I imagined I could have it in my garage, just for the fun of spinning around the block without having the homeowners association filing a new noise complaint against me. First, it’s much bigger than a traditional pocket bike with a 15” rear wheel and an 18” in the front. Second, as you can see it’s a very Bobber looking motorcycle with its Springer front end, jockey shift and solo seat. Add to this a nice TIG welded 4130 chrome-moly frame in which you can have a 49 cc or 110 cc 4-speed 4-stroke engine. It was a big relief when I got confirmation that there is no plastic on the Hardknocks, only polished billet aluminum components and chrome plated alloy. You can get one in black primer (my choice) or with a choice of custom paint jobs. Price starts at a reasonable $1489 and you will have the satisfaction of ordering from the only American manufacturer of pocket bikes. Available at Kikker 5150 where you can watch 2 videos of the Hardknocks being ridden..
