Bike for sale in Shanghai - urgent sale required.

The mighty Haobon 125 is now for sale in Shanghai.

It's only 29 days old and has covered 7,500kms riding QingZhou - Xian - Beijing - Erenhot - Shanghai.

Bike is in spotless condition - never been dropped or crashed and looks like new. It's as tough as nuts, which is what you need for Chinese riding conditions.

I paid close to 4,000 yuan and am asking 2,000 - an absolute bargain. This is by far the cheapest way you can ride in China and the police do NOT check foreigners for licence and/or registration.

I can be contacted via PM, or email at farqhuarforever@yahoo.com.au

Bike is available for viewing and test ride at the Ming Hostel, 450 Jiangxi Rd in the Bund, Shanghai.

Good suggestion Frank, but posting photos is always a challenge for me as the net connections in hostels in China will not handle large uploads. Let's hope this works - a clip from the factory site. The only difference is that my Hapobon is blue, instead of red, and has topbox and crash bars.

Product Name :HB125-8A

Piston swept volume 124 (ml)
Governed power 7.5KW
Max.speed ≥85km/h
Net weight 115kg
Exterior(L×W×H) 1945×710×1110(mm)
Braking mode disk mode/drum mode
Starting mode Electric/kick starting

THe Haobin is gone (sniff, snuffle) - long live the mighty Haobon.

Haobon has been sold to a local bike repairer for a bargain price.

I'm off to Busan tomorrow morning to pick up the Burgie and start the next stage of my journey.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
