the only one I've seen is a Chinese copy of the Russian copy of the ww2 zundap/BMW military bike, it looked pretty good to me but I would have to question the quality of the copy of a copy. good idea trying to find someone who actually bought one. test ride one at the dealers. & report back to answers to educate us.

The Chinese have been making these bikes since the 1950's - based on the BMW R71. It is the cousin to the Russian Ural, and was used by the Chinese military for many years. Here is a site with historic info: http://www.vintagesidecar.com/history.htm It is like owning a modern / vintage motorcycle - not the same as owning a modern Honda. It will have attitude, frustrating character flaws, and you will have to learn to love wrenching on it to keep it on the road. If you are a gear head, it could be the beginning of a long love affair. If not, it could be the beginning of a long nightmare. BUT, at least it won't be all clapped out and rusty, like if you tried to bring an old BMW R75 from that era back to life ! Choose a bike that is right for your needs. Good luck!

I don't know anything about it personally, but as a rule, chinese bikes are low in quality and they are hard to find parts and service for. Where do you go for support after the sale?
