Qjaing has done a very nice copy of a Harley-Davidson powered by a 250cc V-twin, but proportioned so perfectly that it’s hard to tell from a few feet away if it’s a 250 or something larger.
CF Moto displayed a 600cc sportbike that if the quality, parts, and service back up were in place, could probably do well in the U.S. market.
A similar sportbike of 450cc, called Highway Superman, was displayed by the Jiajue Co. When asked if the bike would be exported to the U.S. the rep indicated that they had no plans at this time to do so -- and that it hadn’t passed some regulations for sale outside China.
Obviously the show is about new products and old products that still have life in them, but there were a couple of customs that were interesting,
One looked almost like an old-time flatboarder powered by what looked like a 50cc engine, and another was a café-style custom with a bit bigger engine.
Tomorrow the second hall is on the agenda, and this is where all the aftermarket products are located.
