    I got my first China bike running today. I ran into a few problems and had to drill out the fuel petcock (I'll add a new one soon), and grind the drive sprocket a bit. I'm not done with it yet, I'm going to do a splatter paint job, add a full exhaust with expansion chamber, get a genuine Dellorto SHA carb, and eventually rebuild and port the engine. bicycle3.jpg bicycle.jpg bicycle2.jpg

    Nice bike, would say welcome but you beat me to it.

    Nice clean build. Best of luck with it. So, you needed more wind in your hair than the 380 SL provides?! :evilgrin:

    Even when you get it like you want it you'll find a way to make it better.

    Welcome to the forum. All Caloi bikes I had seen were aluminum until I saw yours. Great choice.

    Thanks, I actually traded with a guy on Craigslist for my old 24" BMX! I really like the bike, very solid and it feels exotic riding something from Brazil.
