Regarding your little guy's brake lever reach issue, see the little set screw in this picture? That is a reach adjustment. If you take that in, the lever will come in accordingly. You may have to adjust the cable tension as well.
Thanks for the pointer on the lever adjustment.

He sold it to me for $500. His daughter never used it so it was basically in mint condition when I got it this past spring from him. And, he gave me a friend deal. I'm sure he could have sold it online for $700+ or at least that's what he told me.

Also, the speed adjustment (governor) is a must for the really young ones and/or beginners. These bikes can really zip at full power!

I'm sure all of the models and makes have a power adjustment.
