Well the bars dont give him more then 25 for, for the sprocket, that thing retails for 29.99, so if its in nice condition, dont give him more then 25 for it. If you are looking for dirtjumping bike, then i would go with the general lee. Old series though, this years model is made out of high tensel steel, so i dont reccomment it....
