Wow about 4,000$ usd for that hero bike !

Looks cool though !

Oh for the days of the clean low mileage hardly used Japanese 2 stroke enduro bikes you could get for 3-400 bucks like these I was washing the mud off of here in the 80s,

Twice as powerful/fast as any lifan of same cc, way more reliable, all they needed was a bore job and oversize piston every 9-11,000 miles which cost about 90 bucks, cleaning of the exhaust chamber, and clutch pads if you were too abusive on the clutch,

If you were brave and didn’t use the bike on the dirt you could throw a velocity stack on it, up jet carb, a bigger chamber and could make like 30 horsepower out of a 175-250cc engine and bikes some as small as 125cc you could put a motocross top end, carburetor and exhaust on it and make near 30hp

I was dumb, I sold them cheap because I got them cheap, I wish I would’ve hung onto one or two of them from the dozens of 90-350cc ones I had/worked on before the Internet came in with craigslist, eBay and then prices went through the roof

It would be cool to get that hero bike, toss the lifan off of it and put a nice built Japanese 125-250cc two-stroke engine on it,
