Those that ride em will maybe see a few short falls
lots of plastic
Looks like it's based on the honda supercub which might be fuel injected

Is this the end of hardcore postieing
Or the beginning of a whole new phenomenon

Replace rear pads, hone the score marks out of the rear drums.

Fronts are "sealed for life", heck, they don't even require adjustment!
Bollocks I wear the front out first , been a postie over 22 yrs. Since when is a decent brake unnecessary, and if they can put disc's on all sorts of scooters etc in SE asia y not here, would be easier on the arm and wrist muscles and cheaper to produce

maybe the Asians couldn't work out how to put the handbrake on discs
you would know how much it sucks having no handbrake out there
plenty of posties wear out the rears regularly
some posties need there chain adjusted almost daily ,don't know what they are doing
maybe shaft drive for em
Gavo what things can you see on that bike that might not be no good for a delivery bike?

remember the humble ct110 morphed into a usable post beast unlike the old the 2 smoke scooter they tried for a little while
I don't think they are in pre poduction yet

i wouldn't mind grabbing one and taking the frame, swingarm,motor and add better rear shocks ,wheels and decent front end and go for a blast.haven't got and weights yet but i reckon they are plenty light

We won't have to check chain tension with that silly gauge anymore
Plenty of bikes cope without a hand brake or just leave it in gear, cause your supposed to take the key when u leave it also with a disc brake, again no silly gauge to check free play

How do you keep an idiot in suspense?
I'll tell ya tommorrow!

Now we're talkin'. Constant chain adjustment, followed by winding in the rear brake.
Give it the shaft drive off a 50cc mini bike, along with some disc brakes!

Add in EFI for more consistent fueling, economy and power.
Double the fuel capacity to reduce frequency of embarassingly small and inconvenient refuels.

Whoever they are, they sound incredibly skillful and attractive, I've heard that the chain can stretch more just by being in the presence of awesomness...

98kph out of a stock postie

Im not $100 sure but I think it might be impossible with stock gearing and stock rev limiter.
Willis shall fill in the technical details.

Gee joe you know as much as me
nothin technical
your $100 is safe
once the speedo is calibrated all is revealed
on the odd occasion weird shit can happen
maybe a freak bike

i do know that if you run ya 110 postie at those speeds or higher for prolonged periods this will happen

how the hell did you manage to get that out of it?
Would have been really nice to have had a postie that could do that speed when we did coast to coast.
