Chinese trials bike.

Postby acemarc » Mon Jan 21, 2013 1:57 pm

Is anyone in Australia going to be bringing these in? I have asked a few importers and it seems none are interested. Desperately needs a bash plate for the exhaust.

Visit a local aluminum fabrication workshop and have one made might be your best option.

Sorry acemarc but you gotta be kidding me..... It looks like the frame will snap in two on it's first rock. :shock:

I know this situation well. I still own a Chinese copy of the Scorpa 4 Tricks which I bought for my son when he was just 10 years old. It had a wimpey 75cc auto clutch engine on it. So we got a 125cc manual and converted over. But after just a few weeks the sub frame started to twist under the extra power. So I had the complete subframe rebuilt out of 10mm marine grade ali. Of course after that I painted it in 2-Pak, put a 24" front wheel on it, upgrade the brakes, proper Trials Bars and had special "4 Trials" decals made up for it. It was a great project but it took far too much time and money. And as my son is 15 now it just sits in my garage doing nothing .....we live and learn :roll:

Do yourself a big favour and buy a bike that's made for Trials.... Otherwise you'll defiantly regret it.


Best of balance.

Thanks for the warning. My nephews both got Chinese made bikes about a year ago. The 110cc has had a broken piston pin, a resulting scored bore, a bent crankshaft which eventually snapped and tires that basically fell apart. The 70cc runs like a CT90 ( the engine even gives off that same CT smell ) starts every time (electric too) and climbs walls. It may also have something to do with the way the older boy treats his bike like a rented mule and the younger looks after his.
Anyway, how about a picture of your project weapon?
Regards, MD

Ok Acemarc

It deserves a much better clean up than I gave it but at least you get the idea.

Things I forgot to mention....
#Adjustable front Bomer Gas Shocks
#Adjustable rear Gas Shock
#Custom built stainless steel exhaust system
#Gold Anodised fittings

Things I'd like to finnish off ....one day :roll: ....
#Proper Trials Peg mounts and pegs
#Rear rim rebuild... you might see a couple of broken spokes
#New air filter cover
#Thicker bash plate
#Gold Anodised handel bar levers

My son and I couldn't resist having a quick ride (after all this time!) :lol: ... You forget just how wicked this bike is. It only weighs 45Kg, pulls like a train and will pop wheelies in 4th gear (with a proper trials technique) and 2nd gear (just open the throttle with your weight back a bit!!).

Anyway thanks for getting me to pull it out of the garage again...I hope you like it?

Thanks Paul..... Do you reckon I'd get a few dollars for it if listed up on eBay?
