Default Falchion R/C Motorcycle

What's the deal with this motorcycle?

http://www.raidentech.com/w3388-motorcycle.html

I cannot find any reviews or pics of it without the bodywork on it, does it have any replaceable parts? (motor, servo, speed control, etc...)

I bought one on Ebay and plan to convert it to a brushless motor/ESC with my own transmitter, receiver and servo. It is a cheap knock-off of the Nikko bike and is not very good out of the box:

I doubt that parts are available, but you can buy two bikes for around $100.00 if you want parts. As far as the bike itself, it is not bad. I took all of the cheapo stickers off of mine and it is setting in the garage waiting for the electronics and hopefully bearings. If you want an inexpensive Ducati, I would suggest the 1:12 Silverlit. The two are similar (not in size, obviously), but the Silverlit has better quality:

Thanks Alpha,

Can you post some pics of the Falchion with the covers off so I can get a look at the internals?

Thanks,

I am going to be doing something similar - the one I have are badged - Nasaki in the UK.

Not going brushless, just controllable.

The inputs are either - on or off, which makes it very difficult to control well.
I have started a thread [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_8371708/tm.htm]HERE[/link] and will be posting the strip down and rebuild pictures.


Need to see whats inside, sizes and how much space, to see what I can get to fit it.

EDIT:
Have to agress the Silverlit 1/12 are very good quality and found some really good prices too.
I bought 2 of the 1/5th scale, so I would have spares - just in case.

Hope you got sorted out - noticed the date on this was a while ago.

Just ran across this article, kind of wished I saw it before I purchase one of these bikes off of eBay. Any updates on this project? Just got mine in so haven’t had but a few minutes with the cycle, can see right off the bat how lame the controller is, one thing I will definitely change will be the radio and ESC. Let me know how you made out or if you canned the project. Thanks!!!
