Default Re: Good Chinese 4 stroke or lemon?

I'm finding that the only way to sell bikes for a profit is to build custom bikes for people, and only build them the way the customer wants. I wait for someone to call me from my craigslist ad, and then if they want a chinese 2 stroke, I can do that, but if they want a 212 predator, I can do that too. Upgrade the carburetor? We can do that. Custom exhaust pipe? Let me grab my welding torch. You get the idea.

There's no replacement for displacement. Bigger is better, and too much is never enough.

I see there's a steep learning curve when importing from China.
Documents, fees, inspections, wait times...sounds like it was a nightmare.

The one thing I noticed was no customer support once they have your $$$, kind of like several sellers of bike motor kits here in the USA.

There are already so many motorized bikes for sale on my local Craigslist I would never consider trying to do it to make a little cash.
