Yes i do... As for costs, the bike i am getting is about the only option for me, i have around 700 total for a bike, title fees and plate fees and all.... That eliminates a lot of bikes, and this one falls in that range... I am fine with working on it, its fun to me... I honestly would rather do a complete buildup on something like this than find out down the road how the PO Mickeymoused crap together....

And it has more than enough stuff that can keep a guy tinkering.
I know there are deals out there, i have seen quite a few of them pass thru my hands because of not having the funds.... I have the funds for this one, and im willing to do the work... AND the seller is willing to hold it for me till i get back in town...

The bike you want to get is NOT a deal.


Sorry for being blunt. But a ragged out ChinaBike isn't a deal at $200. He doesn't have to "hold" it for you. No one else wants it. Hold on to your money until an actual deal comes along, instead of blowing it on this science project.


I'm done with this; plenty of people with much more experience than you have tried to hold your hand. You really don't want to listen.

Bogie , for your sake (and ours) , I hope the seller sells it to someone else . Otherwise you are buying a huge headache. Just save up some money and buy a worthy bike . You should not have any problem finding a bike ready to roll for $1000.

Good luck then . Judging by the motorcycle choices you keep making , we'll never ride together.

You can't go wrong with these guys, great tracks, people, and food. I try to do at least one ride a year with them. Will do the July ride this year.

and THAT, proves the point.

Try this analogy: If you're standing on a train track, and you hear a loud whistle, and the ground rumbles, and you look down the track in the direction you are facing and see nothing, DO YOU FEEL SAFE?
