Default Saw An Old China Girl Motorized Bicycle in Taipei Today

This is the only China Girl I've ever seen in the wild in Taiwan. I've been here over a quarter of a century.

The bike was locked and at the end of a long line of parked bikes. Magnificently rusted, carburetor dangling (the aluminum casting of the out port was broken off jaggedly).

It appears this bike had long service. I saw that there were no leaks in the case or heads or plug. Would love to know the full history.

Unless the motor is seized, I'd guess a new carb and some lubrication could resurrect this girl.
