I actually own one of these, as well as the very MG shown on the box. I may have to get the model. It would be nice if it had the PE spokes like most other new offerings.

Robert, any chance of a picture of your bike? Strangely enough I already had a pm from someone else saying they own a real one of these as well, so I was obviously right about something at least, that there are quite a number of these bikes around. The other correspondent tells me I should fit the centre stand, no problem, still plenty of time for that.

I suppose PE spokes would be nice, and I did say that the styrene spoke clean up was a little painful, but then again, as stated, this is a low cost kit, and personally I like the idea that a kid could buy this on pocket money. I think I am right in saying that it is around half price or less compared to some recent kits of similar subjects that do include PE parts.
