I think somebody in the States have been trying for a while to get them passed for registration without much luck. The only company, I know stateside is AVA motorcycles selling their upsized version for a fair bit money.

Just wrote them to get the details. A 250 would suit me just fine, if the price is right.

Where did you source he shox from?

Finished spooning on the tires. The rear end is starting to look good with piggy back shocks, Led indicators and new rubber


Are they ok to run with tubes in?

Nice looking little bikes. The Honda CG125 engine these are cloned from is legendary for being trouble free and long lasting. With the balance shaft it should be a smooth running engine for a single cylinder although the design is somewhat noisy in the valve train area.

6 years ago I bought a 200cc Lifan in the factory crate and it has turned out to be a great bike. The engine is an enlarged version of the 125, with the balance shaft, and is still running great with over 43000 miles. The Loncin version will probably give you long and reliable service also.

Most of the gear comes from either Ebay or OOracing in the UK. http://www.ooracing.com/store/index....productId=3981

I am running tubes in Michelin pilot sporty tires. They do grip well compered to the stock tires.

That is pretty amazing 43,000 miles. There are so many choices. We have cheap registration for bikes 125 and under. One option to keep it semi legal is to put a 150 barrel and piston on the 125 bottom end. The other is throw caution to wind and replace the 125 with a Loncin / Zhongshen OHC 250 engine.

They always drag in a crowd.

The tank holds 9 Litres or 2 gallons. You can buy them separately from here to put on another tiny racer.

for CG125 based engines you can fit a 200cc kit I've heard of it being done to CG125's using a Chinese cylinder and piston

I have posted on the AVA Facebook page asking. If AVA have fixed the brakes and suspension on their bikes with no reply.

As for fitting a 200 barrel and piston. I think it is way to much trouble. The 200 has different stroke to the 125. I am waiting for a company in China to get their act together and post me 150 cc barrel an piston.

I have been doing little things on the ACE. Tidied up the rear end by moving the indicators onto the main frame.



Used a shock bush as a cover on the kick starter.


Fixed the sidestand. It use to hang down at 45 degrees for some weird design reason.



The box is filling up of stuff removed from the ACE

good lord I love you aussie nutjobs.

really enjoyed the thread.

maybe you'll have a bit of a lark with the bike and if it grenades and pukes it's bottom end out you won't be heartbroken.

I won't be heart broken at all it the engine grenades. The basics like the frame are really robust and can take a lot more HP than in its current form.

When the engine goes, most of us, will replace it with 250 OHC single. A few mutter about trying to find a Honda CRF150 engine.
