    They have no VIN decoding filings with the NHSTA they may be EPA DOT or not?
    Converting an MSO to a title is procedural in each state and some enforce the federal regulation and some do not. The missing VIN decoding doc will stop it cold in some states that use it to verify it is what it says it is.

    I contacted the seller who confirmed $1500 shipped to the US...for a bike appearing on other sites for upwards of 4 grand.
    Scammy?

    DF came almost empty of oil and the owner's manual said to drain and fill with10w40 motorcycle oil so that is what I did at uncrating. I also installed a magnetic drain plug (MDP) at that time.

    Today I passed 180 miles on the bike and a sticker on the engine said to change the oil and clean the strainer (300KMs) so I just did the task a few minutes ago.

    I found what I usually find on the MDP at first oil change. It's real fine metal particles.



    Usually the amount is much less at time goes on.

    Looking good and even attractive in a weird way. Any room to make it a fatter bastard?
    It worked on sand? It seems unbelievable it got as a far as the end of the street let alone as far as the beach, 'Chinese-made bobber' seems almost an oxymoron. You certainly don't suffer from haemorrhoids anyway! Just how soft is the soft-tail Barnone?

    No, it was a serious question! But some think I am always out of it.

    We used to bob our road-bikes years ago, but for off-road not on-road use so we kept the rear-springs and sometimes put wider tyres on the back. But sand was impossible except with almost no air and that would rip the treads off when we got back on the road. Some of the lads made bobbers like yours from track-racing bikes and they had slicks on them, 'fat bastards' the yanks we worked with called 'em. My brother still has one in bits in his shed somewhere. And anyone with haemorrhoids couldn't ride a proper hard-tail bobber so I wondered how soft the rear-spring is because yours looks from the photos to have a coil-spring between the back frame members. Obviously the springing helps not just your backside but to keep traction.

    Gotcha, looks just like the springing on some soft-tails. Thanks for that, now I know you too are nuts. Bloody bike with no rear springs, good luck and welcome to bad-back land! Thats why I have the meds ...

    I just looked and found this site: http://www.custom-choppers-guide.com...-choppers.html
    with this pic which is what i was thinking of:
