If the bike doesn't have a VIN, you will have a of a time getting it street legal. NSRs don't have a VIN, just a production number and I would suggest an NSR over anything. But once again, the VIN is an issue.

Denee (username Denee) on this forum bought one of those Chinese 125's, street legal. Ask her what her experience was like. I think she kept it for a few months as a toy. She said it vibrated too much to ever try it's top speed, prolly around 50 MPH.

You'd be better off with a maxi scooter 150 or larger. They are soooo much nicer to commute on than a crappy 125 or 200 china bike. And they have underseat storage.

I got a Cag you can have for $75.

All it needs is a new tail section, it was raced a total of 6 laps @ Katy - then I gave up and got a Blata.

Where did you get it?
I was looking for the shop that sells them so I could go and check out the different models to see which I wanted. I am just looking to run around the neiborhood on them and in parking lots. Wanted to buy two. One for and the wife and one for the daughter.

Thanks...

Ordered it online, planned on racing it in the tmgp series - but it was too small and too cheap for racing. The tail section broke when my brother decided to ride it in the pits, and looped it.

It 12`ed and broke the tail section.

I never bothered with it as I got a Blata. The Cag's never been started or even sat on since then.

Which was since April.

Yourz for $75.
