I saw this kit on Amazon for a resonable price and have allways wanted to make a large scale bike.

The seller was in Hong Kong and when i recieved the kit it many parts were damaged or looked like been warped thought heat.

After many emails the supplier was unwilling to replace the kit but i did get a refund so I have made a start on it trying to repair the kit as i go.

I have just completed the frame and photos will follow

This kit has been binned and used for spare parts as it is too badly damaged to complete.

Ordered the kit from Hong Kong the supplier thought it would be enough to just wrap it I paper so when it arrived a lot of parts were broken. They wouldn't send a replacement but did refund my money
