He'd mentioned his grandson took the bike for a ride in a field or park. What I think actually occured, was that the GS had a shot on the bike, then fell off and didn't want to ride it again. This, I'm assuming is where the front indicator was broken.
Sounds like a more feasible explanation. Makes you wonder why sellers lie about stuff like this. It doesn't take Inspector Morse to work it out. :lol:

Looks tidy enough. 8-)

It cleaned up nicely but was looking a bit miserable when I first saw it. Enough to make me think twice about it actually.

Why the guy didn't give it a quick once over, I have no idea. Same with the feeble excuse regarding the indicator. I'd suspect it was related to the out of alignment front end, or, that might prompt further investigation.?

I still need to do a bit of final adjustment on the head bearings but I'll probably pull it apart and make sure there's plenty of grease in there as well.

Next thing is to see if I can find out what size of increased cylinder can be used on the 50cc engine without requiring machining etc.

Then there's some lighting modification where you swap a yellow and a black wire around to make the lights work from the battery, rather than the stator. Supposedly this improves the light output ...? That's according to the company that sells the bikes new.

Any ideas if this 70cc barrel & piston kit would go onto the Nanfang with the 50cc head?

If not, what should I be looking for?

Someone passed me on one identical in Perth. Looked and sounded OK.
