Call em and see if they will wave the VAT or if it qualifies for a VAT refund at the border. They are a big outfit in Canada, they can tell you how to get it to Farmington.

Canadian tire has some of the worst customer service I've ever dealt with, they wont have a clue... :102:

I have not seen this one in person, but I was looking at some of their other bikes and the quality seems really bad. The welds were sloppy and did not look strong, and the build up of the bike didnt fit the frame. It wont last long, its just a bad sales attempt to reach a new market (us).

I would not let the cat that knocked Darthvader's 68 z50 off the shelf ride this P.O.S.


That said, if someone had $800 to burn, it would be fun taking it offroad for a day and destroying it, then trying to get a refund at the store. I bet it would work, some 15 year old kid at the store making min wage probably wouldn't even care.

For you Americans on the site, here is what we Canadians call Canadian tire

- Crappy tire
- Canadian trash

Or the new one:

China Tire. Pretty much every single item in the store is made in China. You wont find too much made in Canada there anymore.

Not that any other stores are any different

You certainly cannot plate this bike, it wont have a VIN tag

that said, for $1000 you can get a nice genuine CT that is worthy of being plated and will last a lot longer than the POS

Haven't seen this bike in person yet (I've been to 3 of the local CT stores since finding out about its release). Looks like a low-end PRC clone. Can't knock the price. Looks like you are on your own for PDI and sourcing repair parts.
This would make an OK bike for tooling around on some light trails or riding through the pits at the track.
The bike is a very plane jane, stripped down version of the CT. It lacks some of the features I find appealing. Chrome fenders, flywheel cover and chain guard that "flow" with the lines of the bike, KO style speedometer and retro style candy/metallic paint and decals would make this bike much more interesting to me.
I'd still consider buying one. Start by disassembling the bike. Install (minimum) grade 5 fasteners. Lube and adjust all pivots and bearings. Loose the decals in favour of some Honda ones. Ride it without worry of scratching, denting or desecrating a cherry (and collectible) original Honda.

As much as I love Canadian Tire, its flyers in the Sat morning paper & going there by myself without the wife & kids...I wouldn't recommend one of these. A few I know around here have purchased the Baja line of motorized toys & they are highly prone to breakage, especially any of the plastic pieces. They are the 'Bic lighters' of motorized toys. When its all used up, you throw it away. I was kinda looking at the kids 70cc dirt bike for my daughter with the hidden agenda of cannabilizing it for parts, motor, etc...but I beleive these bikes & the brand are at the top of the PRC junk pile...that swingarm speaks volumes of future potential hazards. Not to mention, it put together there, by their staff....whom I wouldn't want putting my kids bike or my BBQ together.....jeez people, get something far better like the Trail Buddy..you have a reputable, specialized vendor/service & parts outlet with individduals who care about their reputation and their product line.....Canadian Tire isn't about these bikes, its about their volume of sales, like WalMart. I do beleive these Baja bikes come with a document wording about whom/where to contact for parts..good luck. Also, with no batt, I don't think blinkers would be possible & I'm not sure about a title, so road going is out...their larger CC 'enduro's' don't the signals for street duty..
Just my $0.02 based on my exposure to the Baja line.... :peep:

Hey some chrome fenders and new badges would make for a fun beater bike.!:24: Maybe now I can ditch this 50 pounds of crappy tire "money" I've been hanging onto!!!

$100 more and you could get a new 2009 American Lifan with a 1 year warrenty and it would be street legal. Also would have came with a 110cc and e-start and lots of locktight :)

As for a VIN, I am speaking of a VIN that will allow a blue plate title. I suppose it may be possible to trail plate the bike, and at least have an ownership for record of title in your name. I certainly would not think this will ever be a road legal bike.

Watch the e-bay reviews of this bike posted above, or go see one in person.

Loose fastners and peeling decals right from the store. That said, for an occasional trail beater it might work for some period of time. I'd still go for a real bike, for $1000 you can find a used XR70, and I'd sure go with that before this thing brand new.
