    Well no one replied so I went and ordered one of the bobbers and it arrived today. I should have it going tomorrow and will do a mini report.

    Very brave, that is a cool machine, a typical 'chinabike', appearing under a couple of names with no real profile or history. I found lots of cool pics though!
    I bet humanbeing recognises it though, give him time ...

    Brave indeed, and nice looking bike for the money! How many bikes is that going to be then? Looking forward to your thoughts on it, we can never have enough reports on new china bikes!

    jape and felix,
    I don't feel so brave about buying the bobber or do you mean riding it?
    This is my seventh or so China bike/utv that I have uncrated with good luck so far. No major problems with any of them. Kinda like getting them in the crate.

    Well, I always wanted to ride a hard tail so will find out in a few hours.

    I'm up to six bikes, just trying to out do ChinaV. Winning by dying with the most toys.

    Off to see if she will start after changing the oil. Just had to install the handlebars and foot pegs after uncrating her.

    She has five fiddles one of which cost more than all my bikes put together so I am the saint.

    I changed the oil as stated in the owner's manual which by the way is not bad at all with just a few mistakes. The importer must have taken the time to do a good job with it.
    It's engine is a 230cc Honda pushrod clone which has a sight glass and a dip stick for the oil.
    It has a resetable trip meter and four way flashers which is nice.
    Seems to run just fine and the ride is not bad even with the lack of rear suspension. I need to adjust the handle bars and mirrors and then I'm off for a longer ride.

    No, she is still a saint! Fiddling while Nero plays or some such mixed metaphor. On an asspciated theme, I knew a bloke makes fiddles, he makes six a year and makes six months wages on just one ... a weird world, considering the awful noise they make!

    Has she got a sister wants to move to Australia? My ex is trying to clean up on the house I built after we broke up. I haven't seen her for twenty years but she heard I was selling up and becoming a nomad, decided she wanted a last dip into my savings!
