+1 Folks already ask questions about the RSC and Innova here, and are welcomed on rides on those and other, more obscure far Eastern step-thrus of dubious parentage (ask me how I know :) ) Can't see what all the fuss is about really.

I personally have committed many heinous acts of Cub Heresy and am yet to be sent home :D

The riders cubs are C90 Chinese clones as we all know and so they should be "allowed" and welcomed to be members of our club and ride outs,it would be interesting to see how they compare performance wise and will they stand the test of time.
I own a C90 but for the last 6 month ive been using my Suzuki Address and ive been on a Bimble with it and everyone has been very friendly with me.
I think a lot of the parts on my Suzuki will be the same as on an Innova,eg wheels,i could have bought a Innova from a friend for £100 more than the Suzuki but i decided after 26 yrs of riding my cub i wanted a change of brand,i am very pleased with the Address and it is better on fuel and better performance than my cub,the Address has some features that the Innova hasnt,now thats put the cat among the pigeons LOL
The Address has a quick change oil filter,quick change oil filter screen(no pulling the flywheel) and larger fuel tank ,the previous owner Geoff from Preston had the seat modified as like the Innova it was to hard and uncomfortable,i still prefer the cub seat !
Cheers safe riding

Despite some of the comments, and because of some I have decided to buy a Riders Cub. There's an offer on at the moment of £610 in the crate !. Originally I was considering buying one 'cause I needed forks (complete), footrests, chainguard, switchgear for the wheely bin, the rest of the bike to be sold as parts. But now I think I might keep it and use it.
Question is, if I do the former i.e. strip the parts I need and sell the rest, do you think there's a market for the parts?
Also - which colour and type do I get, blue or red, single or dual seat.
order will be placed tomorrow morning, so any comments please.

Riders already list lots of parts on Ebay, so you would have to be cheaper to have any chance of selling some parts. Just prepare it properly, use it, wear it out, then break it for spares. Fogsbody

On the last rideout, (Matlock) There were Innovas, probably riders cubs, a Jialing I believe, A 250cc scootery type thingy, A Kawasaki trail thingy, a 1200cc Spanking new BMW, an beautifully restored Yamaha RD125, a CBF 600, a 1000cc Moto Guzzi California, oh, and a few Cubs.

And a great time was had by all! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
