JR for President
Big brain fart day had me ordering two headlight assemblies instead of just the one I wanted. What other vendor would see that as a red flag and call to question it? No one I ever encountered on the Internet until Thrifty Scooters. JR& Co. recognize what others do not. Integrity is what wins business and keeps more customers. Your average shabby vendor gets rich quick but blows it in the long run. Thrifty has all my scooter business (guaranteed since I cannot help but tinker with things I should not)and they should be around for along time. Thanks peace, love, dove and 60mpg scootering.
DB-07 200cc Enduro
Got the bike on Friday. It arrived in perfect shape, the metal frame inthe box took a hit, but in a good place where it could not have hit thecontents. The only damage I noticed was that the front axle bolt wasslightly bent, which I noticed only when turning it, but it didn't seemto affect installation fit or performance so I didn't worry about it. Anyway, bottom line, the bike is awesome! I followed all instructions andcarefully put it all together over two days including tightening/checkingall bolts, using loctite including on the front axle and lower suspensionlinks, changing the oil, oiling the air filter and adjusting/testing allcables and electrics. Fired it up yesterday and put 13 slow and carefulbreak in miles on it riding it around the self storage facility. It ridesbeautifully and has great power, sound feel etc. I'm not sure how long itwill last but right now it feels and rides to me just a like a Honda. Infact, I have to say I'm generally quite impressed with the quality of themost of components. The only exceptions are the gas cap and the headlightwhich appear a little crude, but no complaints. One additional thing, Inoticed some websites had a line in the specs for remote start/remotealarm and all listings I saw said "no", but guess what, this one hasboth, including two key fobs with lock/unlock, start, and alarm and theyall work great! You should probably include that in your listings, if you can rely on it. On a side note: the box had a correct color picture ofthe bike, but listed the "ITEM NO." as "RDZ-200-BLACK AND WHITE (DB-07H).On the web the RDZ appears to be a dirt only bike, so once again it seemslike the Chinese are still working on model designations but in this caseit all turned out well. Overall I'm very satisfied, thought you shouldknow. Thx, JTW
Motobravo GK_250 go cart
I'm very impressed by ThriftyScooters' efficiency and knowledge. I Sent JR a picture of a Motobravo GK 250 Dune buggy spline with a brief description of what I was looking for. He came back with a price and availability the same day. That was impressive but what was even more impressive was that he went out of his way to accomodate me by making sure I could get my part the following day(friday) just in time for my w/end outting. Price for part and shipping were very honest and fair. I live in Southern California and there are a few dealers here but none have after sale service like Thrifty does. Shop Thriftyscooters with confidence!

JR is extremely knowledgeable about scooters, and he uses his knowledge in the very best way: to help the customer without price-gouging. He showed me how to fix my own scooter (who does that?) and had the best price on the part I needed (I checked around). My brother in law took his scooter somewhere else for repair and is broke now. Customer service is very important to me, and ThriftyScooters delivers it! My business will always go JR's way!

I needed some parts for my JL250P. The seller I originally purchased the bike from no longer sells them. After some searching, I found Thrifty Scooters. They were able to order the parts I needed, shipped them promptly. I'm very happy. I will definitely do business with them in the future.

MC-95-250 cc Spider Replica
My Red MC-95-250cc Spider Replica I purchased from Thriftyscooters is a real attention grabber. JR has been prompt and helpful in responding to my questions about assembly. maintenance, and paper work. I love riding this bike! I would definitely recommend this company for future purchases. Check out my pictures on this site.
The motorcycle DB-07 enduro exceeded my expectations! I was very impressed to see that there were added features such as the alarm and remote start that I was not even aware of. I look forward to having lots of fun on trails and on the road with this bike. Thank you so much for the prompt delivery and quality of the bike! I will definately recommend you to other people.

Jonaway YY250T parts
For the past month I have been trying to find parts for my Jonway YY250T scooter, after laying it dowm to avoid crashing into a cager that ran a red light. Thrifty Scooters really came through for me, I had been searching the internet trying to find all the parts I needed. Thrifty Scooters had everything that I had to have to repair my scooter. What was neat, was having the boss, JR, personally help me in my quest to repair my scooter, this really means a lot to me. When the day comes to buy my next scooter, Thrifty Scooters will get my business. John Ried
You've been awesome. My Roketa Bali 150 cc scooter was down for nearly four months and in a repair shop where the guys could not find a fan for it. In addition to that they broke the first part I ordered from you, the inlet, but I wasn't worried about where to find one. You keep us rolling and I just want to say thanks.
I ordered a UTV 800 and was taken back by what I received. It was just what I had ordered, even better. Everything came as promised, in great shape and more. I would recommend ordering from JR and Thrifty Scooters to everyone looking. JR thanks for the toy!!
My 150cc MC-04 Roketa scooter arrived in excellent condition and was packed so well that it took me two hours to remove all the bolts and nuts to move the scooter off the wooden skid. After removal, I saw it was more beautiful and complete than I had anticipated. The neighbors and my wife stated its appearance is beautiful, racy, futuristic and sexy. I agree. It would have helped,though, to have instructions on how to mount the trunk box. The rear view mirrors were relatively easy to mount. Now, I still need to add the battery and gas to ride, but I'll bet all the neighbors will be envious of this seventy-four-year-olds mode of transportation! Thanks JR for your support. Bob Hulse

We have been selling atv's for 15years and in that time we have only sold 2 50cc atv's. The reason is that the child quickly learns how to ride the atv and can't even climb out of a gutter on the sidewalk. The 90 cc and the 110 cc sell more to young riders. All 90 and 110cc atv’s have a safety throttle governor. This device is all well and good if the child doesn't listen. The important thing to understand is its all about training. The more time you spend training your child the more pleasure they will have with the ATV and the happier you will be with your purchase.
By training we mean the following:
1. Practice stopping and starting and make games out of it, like stopping on a line with the rear wheels touching and stopping on the line with the front wheels touching. spread out the lines until they have a football field of distance between lines.
2. Making a circular track. This will make your child slow down automatically around corners instead of you telling them to slow down.
Remember if you tell them they will not listen. If you make a game out of it they will learn control on their on terms.
