I have a chinese 110 Honda knock-off that I use for just a pit bike, but I am about the same size as you and a 150 is perfect. my friends and I have a mini mx track and the rules are 2 stroke 80 or 4 stroke 150. I have a crf450 for when I want to get serious, and it is huge. I would be careful though and make sure there is nothing wrong with it, because I don't know anyone who would trade a japanese bike for a china bike.

I'm 5'9" and rode a CRF230 for 2 years at my local pit bike track due to displacement restrictions. It's got slightly larger wheels than the 150 but most of the guys there were running the 150's before the 150R's came out. Plenty of "big kids" running around on those. I became much more confident dropping down to that bike for a couple of years after selling my CR250R. Great thing about that 150, BBR Motorsports makes a decent amount of aftermarket stuff for it. Heavier springs and such to make it a little more friendly on the jumps. I did bottom out a lot if I didn't nail the landings just right but overall, you should be happy with it.
