So I've found a crappy 7 year old chinese 125 4 stroke trail bike for sale out the front of some guy's out. The bloke wants 950 for it (dreaming). At first I was gonna buy it because it seemed perfect: A cheap 4 stroke trailie, guaranteed to have something needing fixing down the line, seemed road registerable (had a plate with a VIN number), would be cheap rego, something to put around town with, cheap parts etc etc. Starts easy first kick (no battery for the electric leg to work), idles, runs pretty damn smooth especially for a bike that's been sitting and only started once a month. Dual sport rubber on the rims which is even better, if I could register it I could hop on, ride down to some where out of the way and go have fun on the dirt tracks. Small problem. I did some research on the bike and the brand itself and I can't believe this thing even managed to make it into the country?? Nothing written about it except on the manufacturer's website and on a bunch of chinese wholesaler sites, doubt I could get parts in without ordering them in batches of 100, worse thing is I ran the vin number with the vicroads test and the thing doesn't even exist in the database (maybe I wrote it down wrong). So the only thing the bike is good for is for putting around some guy's back yard which is probably what it's been used for. But my question is this: How the hell did this bike even end up on our shores?? Imported in small numbers by a small bike shop and off loaded at a profit to people who haven't got a clue? I'm just going to get a postie for 800 bucks, much better value for money, only problem is that they're so damn reliable that I'd find it hard to justify rebuilding the motor, even if I managed to blow it up I could probably get one for $100, drop it in and save the effort!! (yes there are the legal issues but it's just a little postie!) Anyone know of any cheap ROAD REGISTERABLE chinese trail bikes that are guaranteed to f*ck up and that have cheap, easy to get parts?
