Hello everyone, I am in China on a contract job and have been looking for a cheap bike out here to use and dump. Today I saw a crotchrocket outside a mechanic shop and pulled in to ask some q's. This one is a doozy for me:
Honda 399cc, single swingarm (left side) but with a highmount exhaust on the right side. The side fairings were off and the bike was cheaply painted and decaled up with no indication to what model. The front end looks alot like this CBR400RR (however even the front fairing was partially off.)
The sides looked like this sides
But the rear wasn't as square as the last pic.
Anyways I found someone who's friend is selling one very similiar to the one I saw. Not being able to speak chinese is tough and they looked blank when I mentioned CBR. The single swingarm may actually be aftermarket... it had some funky ass center cap, the exhaust is def aftermarket... It supposed to be a 98 model. What can I check to find out which model it is? VFR CBR or RVF or mysterious other??
BTW they are only asking about $1200 if that helps. I am going to check out the actual specimen tommorrow. Can't wait!! Any help would be awesome.
