    And the reason it's so cheap? The word Zongchen perhaps.

    I've often thought about someting similar (Japanese, not Chinese) for towing.

    Sounds a bargain BUT, they do not hold stock so it would appear and they do NOT register the bikes with DVLA either.

    What looks cheap is not always a bargain, none sold so far !

    By looks of it you have to pay up front and cannot collect..........................

    They are far from road legal too. Wheels must be covered over their entire width by arches/mudguards. Also worth bearing in mind is that a lot of the cheap ones don't have a differential in the rear axle, this leads to severe understeer in corners especially when the road is wet or contaminated with oil or even snow/ice.

    Hate quads.. they are right up there with trikes in fact

    You have all the disadvantages of bike ( cold, wet etc etc ) and all the disadvantages of a car ( sitting in traffic, unable to make progress )

    On the other hand, they have none of the advantages of either bike or car transport !

    The buggy is ok as it has the ability to carry shopping and water barrels.....
