hi all

I just bought a chinese scoot called a new era (on the v5)

and thats all I know its in a bit of a state and needs some new parts yet I cant find anything out about the model or any info on new era scooters.
heres the ebay link with some pics.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2007-NEW-ERA-BLUE_W0QQitemZ270444411553QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Motorcycles?hash=item3ef7be3aa1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

Well hello there!

The actual model of the engine is stamped into the side, but it looks like a standard Chinese scooter, and they all have the same engine on them. So whatever store or site everyone is suggesting at the moment for best place to shop in the UK is going to be able to help when you look at their 125cc parts. Similarly, the body style name will be different from what I might call it. With the notable exception of the headlight placement, it looks quite similar to my soon to be ex 50cc that came with the enlightening model name "FEV 50".

Now, is this the actual bike you bought? If so, wanted to mention that big open to the elements air filter. If it rains where you live more frequently than you'd like, that will end up as an issue. Once it's wet, the bike will stop and you will walk. Not so much fun. Wink

Be seenin' you.

This looks quite similar in body style. Hope that helps you begin with the body panels.

The scooter group is referred to as GY6 or Chinese Clone. The make & model is widely irrelevant.

As for any panels, they are identical to a sukida sportman2 (and alot of other chinese scoots but this is a start)

thanks for the replys,

engine stuff was easy to find just typed gy6 into ebay and got what I needed (inc, replacing that stupid air filter)

still having a few problems with the body work as there are no bits for a new era anywhere and the one bit I bought for the sportman (the engine cover) didnt fit. anthough I did trim an inch all around and re shaped it till it fits.

one hole covered engine work done (carb getting rejetted wednesday)
two holes (battery and chasis covers) and seat bucket, underseat panal and both rear fairings to go Icon_lol5
