I posted on Jim's last laser plug:
I picked up a lazer 5 and an older bashon on craigslist. $100 I think for the pair. Both were shit. The laser was even more crap than the bashon.
Granted there are some decent parts on the bikes. Brakes, front end, ok seat, mirrors, some nuts and bolts, etc. . I got rid of the laser and decieded to keep the bashon- it's a shifty(2-speed w/ no pedals)
It's the motor and trans I had issues with... And, the lazer was like 6 years old and it was falling apart. Guess they don't use locktite in china.
