Add a zero :)

Still a good price - will you be swapping the donkey for a 110cc item?

I think I'll see what the 50cc performs like first. Supposedly, they do 40+mph as standard as they were (according to internet info) not restricted in the first place?

I'd certainly like to look into what size of cylinder can be used on the base engine as it's a four speed unit.

Here's the bike upon collection, just removed the tank (full of fuel) and the saddle and into the back of the Cee'd:

I like those SS50-esq little bikes.

 

I wouldnt want to pay more than £500 either for one though and it would have to be a fair weather bike.

The way I see it, is that as long as the frame is OK then there's lot's of options to choose from.

 

It'll only ever really be used by myself and the GF going for a bimble around the back roads on sunny days, she'll take the Nanfang and I'll be on the Super Cub.

 

The Nanfang is so dinky, it's honestly like a BMX bike!  :mrgreen:

Well that's me just back in from the shed, where I stripped the steering heading bearings down and greased them up.

 

I'm not joking, when I say they look absolutely identical to a set from a bicycle!

 

Loads of grease slapped in (original state was very minimal) so should be good to go!

 

On the plus side, replacements should be very cheap indeed!

I really like those SS50 alikes, what's the going rate for one? I quite fancy a minimal set of wheels, I don't have the strength to ride a 'big' bike anymore, but something like that would be ideal for having the odd bimble. Just have to fit saddlebags for the dogs! :)

Prices are all over the place.

You can get a brand new one from £900+ (OTR @CBRUs) up to £1500. eBay will show some of them. There's a new Euro 4 version coming out this month.

Used examples tend to be advertised anywhere from £550 to £1500.

My target price was £500 and the bike was advertised for £700. I was lucky that this one was basically still brand new at 6 miles.

Just keep an eye on Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree and search for either Nanfang or SS50.

I called Cheap Bikes R Us in Milton Keynes and asked how many they sold. There's only just over 100 of them in the wild, so fairly rare bikes.

There's a young lad on one of the Facebook groups, in Kent, that's got a pretty messed about one that was looking for £400, I think?
