Default Mini bike throwing kids

Picked up a monster Moto 80cc minibike for the boys last christmas. Recently while the boys are riding it will lock up and throw them over the handlebars. Yesterday I saw it happen with our 10yr old. He was trucking along and we heard a loud clunk noise (engine stopped). The bike immediately stopped and he didn’t, went flying. Glad we make them wear helmets and only ride in the yard.

Any idea why this would happen? I’m thinking its the engine causing this? The bike started and ran just fine afterwards. Engine has been leaking oil pretty much since we got it, but I keep oil levels where they should be. I’ve seen this happen twice now, so we’re parking it until I can figure this out.
