Second hand motto for kid wanted

I'm after been pestered to either get the young lad who's ten, a phone or a bike.
On reflection I know I will be giving up Sundays, fixing and fluting around with it. But I don't think turning him into another phone zombie will do him any good.
Anyone have a small trialy starter bike for sale. I haven't got such a big budget and it will probably get wrecked as its his First. So well under a grand cause its gonna be getting gear and all soon.
Worth a try here. Open to suggestions thanks

Re: Second hand motto for kid wanted

Look at PW80 yamaha, I've bought one for my 11yo (not selling it though). Its a great little yoke, simple to maintain and lots of fun. Powerful enough even for an adult to ride.
I bought it for 600 euro, it was a bit scratched and I had to clean it up, but its all part of fun. Lots of parts for them on ebay so maintenance is cheap.
If you're anywhere near Galway you're welcome to come and have a look.

Thanks. I'm on East coast, but that sounds perfect price and size and what I want for him. I'll get one like it. Better than him becoming another iphone cabbage��

If you want a phone for him I can send you a decent Samsung one for free so you can spend your money on a bike for him
nothing fancy but looks new and would be ok as a first smart phone

That's very decent to offer thanks. . But I'm holding off on him getting hypnotized by one of them...
Thanks very much though
