contact flip, dotcom, carbon to find out what they think. IMO get a used honda for 600-1000 bucks instead.

If you're looking to sell them, it'll probably a short term deal.
They don't last / hold up, the build quality is crappy and parts availibility is pretty spotty on some.
By the time you've off enough people selling junk your reputation will be ruined.

May want to look into just selling parts for them instead of actual bikes since as patrick mentioned they are hard to get. Sorry about previous post I wasn't awake yet.

That's my point he may have found a niche market

most of them are clones of a japan bike, parts are interchangable, easy to get. The new ones that are coming out are a higher quality, but they are just assembled poorly(I guess being paid a bowl of rice doesnt go a long way). If you do decide to sell them, you might have customers sign a disclamer, most retail customers are not even slightly mechanical, first bolt vibrates loose, theyl want to call marvin zindler.

The Korean bikes are better quality than the Chinese bikes. Just not better than Japanese bikes. I was thinking about getting a cheap Hyusung GT650R and turning it into a cheap track bike
Like this!... They compare it to an SV650.

the problem with that niche market, at least in my industry, is that every factory in China makes nearly identical products for marketing purposes but none of the parts are interchangeable between the factories, finished products, or with the original equipment they copied.

being the 24-7 MHer that i am. i would have to say on this forum

Denee

and

Solracer

and

Paniro

know more about knock off than anyone.

denee's threads about hers.

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=22668
http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=22815
http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=24719

Solracer Loves his and i have witnessted its greatness. it seems to be about 70% quality compared to like a honda being 100%

Paniro swears up and down they are the greatest thing since warming KY jelly



I have seen alot and the only nice one i have seen in action is Solracer's. all the others i've seen were junk. i got 2 pocket bikes, Thanks Therky42, both were in need of some work when i got them. i got one running now and i gotta say, its fun, but high maintenance

i have had one for a while now. as long as you aren't out to abuse them, they hold up pretty well. i just take mine out to ride around the neighborhood streets just for fun, but don't stunt or anything with it and it is still running strong.

That one has made many podiums and won a couple races, but it was far from cheap.

My wife loves her GT650R...
