My 8 year old nephew is much interested in bikes and cars. He helps me out in all my activities with my bike right from cleaning to repairing. I wonder to his age, he keeps asking questions on automotive aggregates 'what is this? what is this for? what if not this? what if this fails?'
One fine day I was browsing some UK used bikes website as I'm travelling there shortly, and my nephew pointed a kid bike in the advertisement and asked me 'Can you get me such a bike?' when I turned towards him, suddenly he said "I won't drive fast as you do!"
This is the first occasion he placed me a request or asked me something for him, for which I said "Sure dear, but not now. Once you grow up let me get you". I could feel the disappointment from his face, then the topic changed and hope he forgot (may be) about the same.
Suggestions from each of you are required on the list below,
1) Is it adviceable to get him a bike at this age? BTW
he rides bicycle pretty good from the age of 5
2) If yes, any kids bike readily available in India (No to my knowledge) or
3) Which is the best engine to fabricate a kids bike locally? (speed should not exceed 25~30kmph, no matter what so ever the mileage it delivers)
