This is the future chaps - early Chinese bikes.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/sym-wolf-125-motorcycle/184310996858?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1431.l2649

Back in 2000 ( 20 years ago) the lads at San Yong Motors were cracking these CG125 clones out. Mostly made out of cheese, unobtanium and Wrigglys Juicyfruit foil wrappers most of them ended up in the scrappers before their third birthday. A few however survived.

In another 20 years when the Japs  and Indians are knocking out expensive retro or high end bikes and everyone is riding around on Chinese 脆皮鸭125 bikes because they are reasonably priced and reliable with decent dealer support it will be these early bikes that suddenly sky rocket in price due to scarcity, nostalgia and the show circuit scene.

Remember, you heard it here first.

I know we’ve had a few Wartburgs recently, but I don’t think we’ve had this one yet.

My Grandad, God rest his soul, used to have an estate one of these in the 70’s in canary yellow. He’d “fixed” the brakes himself that well that he used to have to put his arm out across the front seat passenger, whenever he pulled up at the lights! In a sort of “brace!..... brace!....”  crashing Aircraft instruction !!!

I did see that last night - looks like it's sold now.

I'm pretty sure I've seen that one before a few years ago. Don't think yellow was ever a factory colour for BXs but I like it a lot!

I suspect that's a waste gate through the bonnet too. MEGA COOL! The ad reads like a Toys R Us shopping list and of course...

500 squid or offer from somebody who doesn't realise it's had the MoT extended.

8 miles away from me apparently. If I bought it ,I would tidy it up and sell it. Mileage is low, but MOT history shows it had serious structural rust  3 years ago. Mmm not sure.

I'm sorry, what are my eyes seeing! There goes an evening reading up about this novelty.

It's an American thing I think. There was an era when any car sold had to have these, even imported cars, when I went there in the late '80's on holiday I can remember seeing a BMW e34 5 series with them. Obviously there was some serious reworking to enable it all to function.

Quoting the exact reason.why the DVLA should probably be informed

The conversion I believe was one of the first VTEC Metro conversions done. It was done roughly 15/16 years ago and has been through a few owners since. Originally built as a track car it has many battle scars.

 

Do we think it was ever used on the road whilst the incorrect Tax was being paid and insurance wasn't valid ?
