Hi all, new member here but a big fan of net rider already. So much information on here! Keeping my story short, I'm an aircraft mechanic by trade but am currently working an admin role. Basically, I got bored and wanted to keep my hands in an engine so I bought a cheap bike to turn into a bobber. My goal here is to take something that is crap and make it less crap, and do it cheaply ie. How far can I get for 2k including bike? The donor bike I found is a 2007 Arqin Bruiser - A Chinese import from a company that no longer seems to exist. However, previous research proved this bike is really manufactured by Jinan Qingqi - a large Chinese Motorcyle and scooter manufacturer claiming OEM for Suzuki and Peugeot. The model is a QM250 cruiser running a parallel twin for 233cc and a whopping 14Kw approx haha. Now before you laugh, choke, or blow more air out of your nose than normal, please understand a few things: 1. This project is meant to be challenging. 2. It is meant to be cheap. That being said, safety will not be compromised although styling will probably suffer. 3. The engine is mechanically sound bar a few minor cosmetic issues. 4. I anticipate difficulty sourcing parts, however I managed to find the parts manual plus the internet is a wonderful tool. 5. I have a detailed build and budget plan I will be working to. 6. The end goal is to have a registered, roadworthy machine that looks and runs better than when I got it. My question to you guys is: Would this project be something of interest to you, and if so, would you like me to document the build through this forum? Thanks for reading so far, and let me know your thoughts and/or tips and experience. I'm all ears!
