Hardknocks Bobber. Almost A True Bobber.

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..

    Looking cool. For less than $1500, I think it’s worth it. Another bobber to ride when yours is down.

    i am a dealer for these bikes they are fun and fast and sell well,, we pinstripe them or custom paint them, and people love them, great quality, buy them online or from a local shop. the owner kelly has been trying to produce this bike for 3 years, it was worth the wait.and if you finagle the paperwork properly its street legal as a moped. headlines read “local bar terrorized by mini bobber gang”…
