- I didn't pay for it. - Rear wheel has spring suspension* (but see later comment in Other Thoughts). - Um, what else... - Working kick stand* (which sticks out to the side while up). - The wheels and steering turn (getting desperate here). * Listed as features on the end of the box, along with the claim of being an authentic replica. - Cheap appearance, cheap paint, cheap chrome, cheap assembly. Cheap. Appearance: - This thing looks cheap. It doesn't look like something I'd want to put on display. - The motorcycle is not centred on the display stand. It's displaced to the right. - It's dusty and dirty. Before being displayed it would need cleaning. - The windscreen is dirty and scratched. - Various other body panels have scratches and marks from the plastic moulding process. - The number plate sticker is peeling off. Paint: - Some of the paint is applied unevenly so it varies in thickness. - Paint edges were not masked out well. The edges are not crisp or straight. - Some of the painted areas appear to have have been dusty before painting, and been covered with dust after painting while the paint was still wet. - In places the paint has chipped off. Some of the paint has come off just with me touching it. - The paint on the back corners has rubbed off. Chromed bits: - The chrome on the muffler has yellow paint on it and a very visible black fingerprint on the underside. - The chromed chain cover has scrape marks. - The chromed wheel rims look like they haven't been trimmed properly or they've been melted during assembly. Hot tyres? - A significant part of the width of the front wheel rim and a small amount of the back rim is missing. Assembly: - It hasn't been assembled well. That wheel rim should have been rejected. - The front brake disk is spinning freely and rattling around. When put back in place it falls straight off again. - The front wheel is free to move a couple of millimetres from side to side. - Plastic burrs on panels haven't been removed. - I wasn't expecting something fantastic, but I was expecting something worth $9.20, something that - The motorcycle is screwed to the display stand. This is a little symbolic of what you'll be if you spend money on this. - I took the bike off the stand. At no rear spring compression the belly of the bike is 2mm off the ground. At full compression the belly is on the ground and the front wheel is 10mm off the ground. - The fuel tank is metal. I don't actually see the point, except in trying to aim at a better market by being able to claim "die cast metal". - The front cowling easily unclips but can't be removed past the front wheel. This is not a $9.20 motorcycle. $3 maybe, or $2 considering the front wheel rim should have been rejected in manufacturing. Even at that price I wouldn't buy it myself.
