Bike in a box. A winters project a Skyteam Ace

Being in the grip of a cold winter on this side of the world. The garage takes over instead of riding around on icy roads.

An advert in a local motorcycle magazine caught my eye. A Skyteam ACE 125 delivered to your door in a box for bit more than half the price of on fully assembled from a shop. A couple mates have also bought one as well with the idea of modifying them for more speed. Most likely we will go down the same path as AVA motorcycles and put a 250 engine in place of the 125. These things a tiny at 90kg with a full tank of fuel.

Like Mad Ass's. The hot up bits cost less than a carton beer. This make a nice change after European bike prices.

Said box arrives after 3500 km on the back of a semi trailer and cross a small ocean to arrive at my garage.



Yep, there is a bike inside that tiny box.


After removing the packing frame.


Had a laugh at this.


Front wheel on.


On its own wheels. Looks like it ready to go, Not really.


I have the 303 kit from OOracing. With a smaller rear sprocket, CDI and new needle & jet. The muffler has to be hack sawed off and CAT removed (+3 hp) and more racy muffler. Need some of piggy back shocks from Ebay. Well you probably get the idea.

I would check all the nuts & bolts.
-ADD GREASE
-Check tire's for pressure
-Drain oil
-Drain brake fluid
-Replace spark plug
-ADD GREASE x2!
-Replace chain
-Replace engine
-...

It's Chinese =/ Honda!

Still like the honda Dream 50 dual overhead cam engine more!

Good luck with it!

I fully understand the Skyteam is Chinese and is a mixed bag in a quality. I don't plan to ride the bike across country. It is more about having a bit fun during the winter months in the garage.

Funny it doesn't look a thing like the Sachs Madass, but it looks like it has the Lifan 125 OHV clone of the Honda CG125 engine. Those engines, (according to BigMoth..) are supposedly real durable engines. But can they rev up?

this will be good to follow, perhaps a supertrapp silencer? for a small bike like this would really recommend Michelin Pilot Sporty tyres had them on my supermoto they were great in the dry and in the wet.
