Do a Google search on “Trek KDR 1000”. You should be able to find something for $500 or less. I have two KDR’s, one with 24 inch wheels, and another with 650c wheels. At 5′ 1″, you will be looking for the latter for your boy. You are right that selection is pretty slim for little people road bikes, but they are out there. You could also do a eBay search for “48 cm bikes” which might work with 700c wheels. Standover height is the most important number you are after, make sure to know what that is B4 buying anything online.
