Personally, I bought my son an 84 CR60 when he was 8 and his only previous bike was a PW50 a few years before. The clutch has been a learning curve, but a few trips to the dry lakebed where there is nothing to hit for 5 square miles, and his confidence is high enough now that he is riding easy tracks - just 1 year later.
BTW - the CR60 I got from a local paper for $275, and it's a great pit bike for me too

It is a bit more than the PW, but resale value is great... My 9 year old daughter loves it as well... 7 year old son loves it, hell, I reckon it's fun to crack wheelies on... LOL

The TTR is a cool bike but if you can't run to it then the PW isn't just a poor 2nd, but a good alternative

It is my belief as well that all XRs are bullit-proof, and it is impossible to go wrong there. Bottom line is let your kid sit on all of them and see which one fits them best and turns them on. There is nothing like the feeling you get when you see that light in your kids eyes shine!!
Oh, one more thing. I remember reading that it is better to buy new minis because the resale value of them prevents you from getting a really good deal, and you can always get your money back out when you sell.
