nice look.....summer 2011
Now, how much and where??
i think there will be a demand for this
i would also like to see it with a yamaha 660 lump and a single seat
i bit british 50-60s scrambler look
vid of it here;
I like it. I imagine most owners will ditch the mirrors on day 1.
I'm seeing $2895 as the pcice on the web
They should sell a bunch of them for that!
i have my heart set on their "chopper"
pretty sexy chap doing the modeling, doncha think?
I think SYM was also coming out with something similar, called the wolf if I remember correctly.
Heres a pic:
I just showed my wife the Cleveland and I think one may end up gracing our garage.
Sweet bike but it needs to be a 250cc to really make it in our market. Could be a world wide best seller but not here. It needs to be able to do at least a 10 mile stint on the interstate with hills. I love it but its not on my list because of the lack of power, and Im not asking for much. Ive owned a SYM HD200 scooter and that was the most amazing 171cc's under a twist grip. It could do Interstate roads all day if needed. It hauled my 230 lbs loaded at 70 mph on the flats. I just hope SYM can become a strong seller in the USA, let's say this year and for the first time(If the Lance takeover is worth a shit). Carter Bros at there best before the fire were a pain in the ass in my opinion.
It will end up in mine too. I will be contacting them next week for a reservation. Are you taking a peek here Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha?
Suzuki has already a retro-styled small UJM, the TU250X.
They look like a cross between a 74 CB125 honda and a DT250 yamaha.
That's a chopper?
Ha...to each his own.
I agree that the available bike models have strayed away from this kinda thing ever since marketing decided that we all (in the us) want a cruiser with a stepped seat and pull back handle bars.
the DT series is timeless uncluttered beauty......the CCW ACE reminds me of how my bikes looked back in the 70s.
nowadays, bikes are l;ike NASCAR......only the decals tell them apart.
Sweet, a slow chinese thumper with an american name and almost zero dealer support! ( other than yours, of course )
Here's my bobber by Dong Fang. I think my model is better.
Well my first bike was a 74 CB125, then there was a 76 KE125.
But after that was these...
And because they are simple as a lawn mower, they are what I still ride daily. Although I wouln't wish an old british bike on just anybody...after you pay your dues, it all becomes worth it.
Might be about 8,000 bucks poured into the BSA over 30+ years including what I paid for it. That's a riding bargin!
I have really lost count of all the rides!
if i wanted to say anything about sales, i would have posted in the vendor section.....but i did no such thing.....so wipe up your mess.
let me ask the expert.....a fast single 250 4-stroke that is 100% street legal??
I haven't taken a motorcycle of mine into a dealer for anything for twenty years and won't buy one that I can't fix myself.
I guess some that can't turn a wrench need dealer support.
Every time I go into a dealer for a part they end up ordering it any way so I might just as well order it myself and have it delivered to my house.
I will second that!!!!
