    Hi everyone!

    i am travelling through Lao with a Kolao Motorbike, which i bought here...

    it is a great bike but since i go home on the 23 of august, i must sell it unfortunately before that... i am traveling up north and will end my trip in Vientiane, but i am looking for selling the bike in Luang Prabang around the 17-21th of august...it would be also possible that i take it on the bus down to vientiane if somebody would wanna buy it in vientiane...

    it is a good lao bike, and i had no problems with it so far, travelled quite a distance and dirty roads and it did very well all the time ;) except for one flat tire and so i just i renewed both tires and also the chain. also i drive without licence since i forgot it at home, has been no prob so far. as i bought the bike i got a card for the bike, it has lao plates, comes with laguagge straps, a basket in the front, etc...

    its not authomatic and i didnt know how to ride a semiautomatic one before, but learnt it fast.

    it says it is a honda, but its not ;) its a Kolao, i think cc100... ;)

    the price is 3,5 mio Kip, i bought it for 3,8 mio and invested in tires, chain.
    but we can talk about the price of course ;)

    if anyone is interested, pl email me or respond to this thread...

    Kolao is not a Lao bike, but Korean. However if it says "Honda", it will not be a genuine Kolao, (Kia), but a Chinese copy.

    well what i meant is that it is a Laotian bike in the sense of lao number plates...
    but yes it is a real KOLAO, it says it on the engine. and yes it is made in Korea.

    "yes it does say honda on both sides"

    Then it is NOT a Kolao, but a Chinese copy. Listen, I live here, I have owned Kolao bikes. They are a legitimate company and would not put a Honda label on it. You are trying to sell a Chinese copy bike; and "NO!", most bikes here do NOT have Honda on some part - not legitimate ones anyway.

    Well, I certainly would not buy a Chinese copy and I would not recommend that anyone else do either. A possibility is that the person you bought it from added Honda stickers. You shouldn't advertise on this site anyway.

    " You shouldn't advertise on this site anyway."

    Where did that come from? As I type, there are three other posts on the main page for second-hand motorbikes for sale in addition to this one. Even if this is a Chinese copy, there is no excuse for attacking this poster the way you have Rufus.

    "Kolao is not a Lao bike, but Korean."

    I can't imagine that Laos produces anything that anyone would actually want to own.
