    Go to know about that the tank has stickers.Esp that they come off. I was thinking a set of blacked out 10 or 11" Ape hangers and a paint job on the tank once i finish drawing it up. Was also thinking about redoing the rims in a red powdercoat
    Didn't make it to the ranch, decided to ride down to the beach instead.

I'm not a big wrench-turner, so reading that it comes almost entirely assembled does offer me some comfort...

    Also I am curious to see a photo of this bike with a normal sized person on it - I'm not terribly large, 5'10 and around 200lbs...but having seen some of the "Crate bikes" that friends have purchased in the past, I have concerns as to the definition of "full sized" ;)

    How's the power feel on this thing? Not a big speed demon, but would like to know it can get up to 60 or so without having to get off and push...
    Thanks!
    bighabeeb,
    Welcome to the mad house. Good place to learn about Chinese bikes.

    The Cleveland Cycle Werks Heist has the same engine as the Dong Fang Bobber. The Heist appears to be a little more fancy but I like the plain looks of the DF. If I was close to a real dealer handling the Heist then I might consider it but it's a grand more. Don't know much about the Johnny Pag so no comment on it.

    I'll get a photo of me(5'11" 200lbs) on the bike.
    Still breaking mine in but it's not going to be a power house. Should be able to cruise at 60 MPH. It is fun to ride at a sedate pace. If you want more speed then you need more displacement.

    Bar - thanks!

    What I'm really in it for is something I can mod and "Fancy up" as I see fit...add some billet of my own choosing rather than that chosen by the bike manufacturers....pop on a longer tank, move the seat down to be more of a true hardtail look...and of course, some big-ass apes :)

    Basically, for 2 grand, I don't mind taking things apart and teaching myself how to put it back together :)

    Welcome Bighabeeb
    I'm new to the forum as well and just bought the DF250RTB it should be arriving on Tuesday. This is my first bike and I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully I can get the MSO in quickly after the Bike arrives I'll be more than happy to postpics of the Bike when l get it

    This Bike has a lot of potential with a fairly decent tank 3.8 gal. looks like enough space on the frame to put a 600cc engine

    Gardo.
    I'm been waiting almost a month for my MSO and bill of sale so I can get legally tagged.
    Seller claimed they was mailed a few days ago and wants me to release the Paypal hold on his funds but no way will I do that.
    I think the tank holds more like 8 liters (2+gallons). Maybe you can fill yours up from empty to get a true reading.

    Does this engine look like a 400cc CG125 that will bolt in my bobber? Just thinking for down the line.

    Here is link to all the EPA approved bikes http://www.epa.gov/otaq/cert/veh-cer...r-01-26-11.csv

    I would like to evetually set that inot a dat set online that is searchable, but for now you can use the "find" feature in your browsers Edit option from the tool bar.

    Dong Fang has an entry with the NHSTA but no filing for the coding of it VIN and thats an issue in some states.
    you can search for it hear http://204.68.195.151/cars/rules/manufacture/

    that NHSTA database uses %for a wildcard but just entering the WMI will pull up its entry.
