What are all these rumours about Chinese bikes not lasting. Here is a photo of my Huoniao hn125 that I take on the club runs from Matlock. Ok, I don't like taking it through water, but doesn't look bad for an 11 year old bike

It is hard these days to get a decent cheap hack. In fact what people are asking for some bikes I’ve seen is nothing short of ridiculous, but if they manage to sell them at the price they're asking then fair play.

Doubt there are any wuyangs left out there, but me and my mate got one each, literally new for about £300 each or less, hardly any mileage on them. You could start them up with the key fob from twenty yards away. Most fun little bike I owned, just the carb what let it down, but I heard the innova carb did the trick..cracking little engine.

Don’t know if it’s been mentioned, but some ntv650’s can be picked up cheap, great bike if you live with the poor legroom from seat to peg.

You can also pick up the odd Transalp 650 for a fair price.

Last cheap bike I got was a sh125 for I think £650 about three years ago..... I put some new shocks on it, serviced it and sold it to my mate not long after I bought it for £650. Just bought it back on Saturday for £650.

I think cheapest bikes come up for sale on here.

I've just picked up a 15,000 ml Innova for the princely sum of £00.00. As in free. Tough work but some ones got to do it.

No it's all in one piece thank you very much.
Do you think it would be rude to ask the bloke for some money to offset the service parts I've had to buy for it?
