I'm not a motorcycle guy but found this interesting...
I also wonder what motor oil it left the factory with.

It continues ... with a torture test. eek Guess for $1400 can't really complain about that thing.

They were shipped full when I assembled them 30 years ago. Maybe no more?

I just watched one of this guys video's today, except it was a 200?cc "sport bike" that came fully assembled. It actually looked decent for $2,499 shipped, however I'm sure better deals could be had on quality used machines.

Looks like it had turn signals, headlight and tailight/brake light ... I think that's all that would be required to be street legal.

I watch these guys videos religiously and this is a darn good video on that bike. They torture that thing pretty well. I would rather buy a known bike myself but they did a good job here.

Especially if you get one with tank stickers that look like this. laugh [Linked Image]
