Hi guy's new to the forum and biking at 61 years of age.
I'm in the process of training for my CBT however as usual I jumped the gun and have put a deposit down on a bike.

This is where I get roasted.......the bike in question is a Keeway superlight 125 custom.
I know fucking Chinese....anyway I toyed with the idea of second hand Honda Shadow but unfortunately don't have the readies for that so took out a quick hp agreement.

There definitely is mixed opinions on them ranging from shit to great value for money, I'm planning to keep it for a year or two before go for my full licence and then a visit to West Coast Harley in Glasgow well that's the plan.

Any out there with experience of this bike.

Hi mate welcome along :-)

I think over the years the Chinese made bikes have improved. From what I've seen they are using betting quality materials and components now. If you are planning on keeping for a year or two I don't think in that time you will have any major issues! I think what they have suffered with badly before is corrosion so perhaps keep it in a garage or under a cover to keep the rain at bay and if you ride in the wet give it a rinse when you can to wash off any salt picked up off the road :-)

I ain't gonna roast you! When do you get your hands on the bike?
