I thought it was loosly explaned on the first few pages (I haven't looked though, maybe I should before opening my mouth...), but the base bike used is of Chinese origen (sold as an "Odes" here in Aus.

That bike was basicly an older CRF, (I think they had the old tooling for the parts, but I could be very wrong there), and from what I have heard, copyright doesnt really exist in China.

All this is just of the top of my head so if someone comes in and refutes it, they are probably right.

Edit, I just looked, and it must have been a different thread I was thinking of...

It was THIS thread...
