Saw this today..

#1 Post by Gerontious » Mon Apr 15, 2019 8:12 pm

Out for a ride this afternoon.. sunny and warmer than yesterday and came across this, New on a 68 plate. Im assuming its chinese, but have to say, it looked great!!

sadly, I couldn't see the other side as i wasn't prepared to go in some random strangers garden.

Look how they've done the R in Crosby to look like a Triumph logo . There are quite a few of these pseudo Triumph retro lookalikes around and this is not the prettiest I've seen by far . If this is the "Scrambler" version I bet there's a street version and a café racer version as well . It's just an attempt to Anglicise a Chinese bike that I'm guessing may have actually been aimed at the Japanese market . ( Possibly )

That's a South African import apparently. In Europe they are badged as a mash while in S.A they are called Crosby

Commissioned by a French company but yes made in China :wink:

Very nice looking bike though. Would be interesting to see what it looks like after a couple of years in this country :shock:

I wholeheartedly approve of this message but I'd still have a CB400SS out of the lot 8-)

Looks nice apart from the exhaust which looks like a total after thought.

@Joeman and @fastbob

I go along with your comments. The exhaust doesn't do the bike any favours.

If it is looked after and is not neglected in the cleaning regime it will still look fine.........the exhaust will still not look right though! :D
