Look at this "Yamasaki" XD

Behold, this thing of wonder,
A chinese clone 50cc motorcycle, called a "Yamasaki YM50-88"

 

I must say, it looks quite good, but a Yamasaki? 😂

They even have a forum dedicated to it (in German) at http://www.yamasaki-forum.com/forum

They also make scooters which are quite popular in parts of eastern Europe from memory. I remember seeing one when i was there in 2002 and thinking it was hilarious

To top it off, it looks like the wheels and brakes have been lifted off a 1982 Suzuki 😄

Oh China...always, original.

 

Very suitably,  utilitarian.


Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.

Yamasaki--I love it LOL--combines the names of my two favorite motorcycle brands. ;D

Maybe another Chinese company will start making motorcycles and call their bikes Honzuki. ;D

The wheels and brakes are common pattern Chinese stuff. A whole heap of manufacturers there make exactly the same components. The wheels are a little heavy but not too badly made ( I guess they have to handle the crappy Chinese rural roads) . The bearings SUCK!!!. The brakes are surprisingly good for little bikes though. My first race bike was a very modded chinese made Sachs that had those wheels.


Go forth and modify my son...go forth and modify...

This yamasaki is only 50cc. However the Suzuki seems a lot bigger (perhaps a 500-650cc?). Those small brakes on such a big bike, is a big no-no.

They're ok to brake from 35MPH, but not from 75MPH.

I was referring to the design, not usefulness, since I found it funny that the Yamasaki looked like a Suzuki ;)
