Sky Team Clone bikes

I now work for a dealer that sells Sky Team. We have two in stock and I have ridden one of them but there are two we don't have that I do want.

Here is the one I have ridden:


And here are the two I want:


and

Does anyone have any experience with these? I hear they have a strong presence in Europe.

The one I rode--CT clone--is a lot of fun but I only had it in the parking lot at work. Should be a blast in the city or in small towns. The 125 engine pulls the little bastard very well.

The fat tired beast is very similar to the one Pitster Pro sells. Do you know what company makes Skyteams?

Pitster Pro sells SkyTeam bikes. I know they are Chinese made.

I was just curious if they were Jialings or whatever. The Pitster Pro pit bikes have proven to be reliable as a claw hammer and wondered if their CT-70 clones and the fat tired thingie were made by the same company.

The 125 street bike is slick as snot. Any idea of what they'll retail?

I've seen the white one for $1699 and the yellow for $1999. Personal I wouldn't pay anywhere near that.. Wait to pick a used one up for $400.

How about the silver 125? That's the one that's giving me sweaty palms...

cool bikes. Blue loctite is your friend. On the ct70 just get some real (slightly larger) tires for it and you are golden. Some states wont plate the ct70 even though it is almost as big as a zuma... and faster too. Change all the fluids to real ones first thing. Oil and brake fluid. Put real clamps and better hoses on the fuel lines and you are good. I think skyteam switched to the zongshen engines but I might be wrong. You can bolt up an xr50/xr70 clone motor but make sure it has the stator that can power the lights. If you don't like kick starting you might want to pass as the starter motors fry if you look at them wrong. Be gentle on the kickstart too and only do it from tdc. No experience on teh 3rd bike.

If you can find the Sky Team website it's fun and hilarity 'O plenty to navigate. 70's style pR0nO music always good, too
Couldnt find a dealer list anywhere though.

A Honda Mini-Trail is the first bike I ever road in about '69. I credit them for imprinting my DNA
It would be awesome to tag-up one of those 125 versions as a ninja city street bomber . Again, like to find out more, but can only find
chinese contacts that say you have to order 34 atta time.

Moto-Scoot in Milwaukee posted on Craigslist Chicago a few days ago about reserving your Ace Cafe and the price was right around $2k.

emailed them yesterday about the Ace 125, No answer yet will keep you posted, it would be a hot seller if they used the 250 motor in one as well.

I work for a bike dealer in Seattle that sells the SkyTeam bikes. The Ace is a recent announcement.

I am a huge TW200 fan so the chubby tired one is looking really tasty. If the other clone motors can be bolted up then if the standard motor were to go belly up then a new hot rod engine could be swapped in...

I know this is an older thread. I just emailed Skyteam back and forth a few times. I was told that they are dropping the CT-70 clone. The big balloon tired TRex is out of stock with no date as to when they will get some in. The one they have available is called the CBR 125. Looks like the Pitster Pro mini monster and looks like a mini riot. The cool café Skyteam Ace, I was told, won't be available in the US for about 8 moths. It is being sold in the UK I think and some other countries.

Pitster Pro has the CT-70 clone, the Sherpa (the ballon tired bike), and the Mini Monster on their website. Also a deluxe CT-70 clone with bigger wheels and tires and inverted forks. I am trying to find out if all these are available.

After riding the bikes, the CT-70 clone had engine trouble(starter/clutch/transmission) and both the CRB and CT-70 clone had issues with rust on chrome.

I wrote them off as a viable option even though I really would like the fat tired bike.

I don't think the fat tired bikes have much chrome. That's a good thing. I live on the Big Island of Hawaii now, and everything rusts here in the Puna District.
