    From the dust of the old husqvarna brand in the italian city Varese ,the buildings were bought by SHINERAY several months ago now rises S.W.M, a italian brand that has been out of bussines for over 30 years and was a verry famous enduro,mx and trial machine builder with several world titles.Check out the galerie on the right side,the enduro s are clearly husqvarna but i really like the cafe racer,scrambler and the silver vase ,it think those last 3 machines using shineray engines ?

    check it out ,picturegalerie on the right

    How am I supposed to read it--it is all in a foreign language Just kidding

    Seriously, while I could not read any of it, it all seems very interesting! Ironically, someone had posted a rant about Shineray not too long ago, about how they do not know how to do business. A friend of mine who is a distributor here in the US, said he used to carry Shineray products, but stopped. While he did not find them arrogant like the poster who ranted here on Mychinamoto, he found that he would make a deal with a rep, get some bikes, and call back a few months later to order more bikes or parts, and he had to start all over again as the rep was no longer with Shineray. It happened a few times, so he simply stopped dealing with them.

    I wonder who will be considered 'management'? If it is Italians, they will hopefully want to sell bikes?

    MASH is offering these as well as a Classic 250cc Ala Qinqqi.
    Mash calls their bike with a 400cc a Five Hundred?


    MASH 250CC

    I had never heard of MASH. Ford had a 500, but I think the largest engine they had in it was a 460 cu inch Kidding aside--motorcycles are often named for their engine size, so it is a little misleading to name a 400cc bike a '500'

    The ad from the MASH 500 is from Belgium,my homeland.In France and Belgium the mash bikes are verry populair,a local motorcycle magazine tested the 500,sorry 400 and were verry postive,except the suspension and brakes working was negative.But i d ont think the engine is the same as the air cooled from swm,for the beginning the engine size is different nl.435,77cc against 399 cc for the mash

    I mentioned on the SWM thread under 'Industry News' above, some of the MASH bikes, at least the smaller ones, are Cleveland Cycle Werks motorcycles which is not a bad thing. CCW has figured out a way to get Chinese bikes mainstream even in the US, which is not an easy thing to do. Their bobber started it all, and then their stylish ACE and MISFIT (I think the MASH 70 and 75??) continued it. They proved that Chinese bikes don't blow up the first time they are ridden!

    Looks like a very interesting line of motorcycles. I think there is a thread on advrider.com also. I love this old style do it all dual sport!! Reminds me a bit of a 1964 BSA 500 twin scrambler I rode in high school.
