Cheap China Bike

I got on craigslist and saw some china made bike for 1600. I want to try and make that a track bike. Its a 250. I have a 600 that i am rebuilding but patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited said my bike wouldnt pass. He said it quickly and surely. Like there is no way in my bike would pass.

Think thats a good idea? Any thing you can tell me about those china bikes and would they make a good track bike?

dont even bother, they are built poorly with parts and will not hold up to what you want to do. Just pick up a Ninja 250 for around $1k and learn to rail that thing through the corners. DONT DO IT!
