    Kevin (fishenough) shortly before he broke my foot peg.

    273974=6850-DSC00352.

    He was showing me how to test the suspension and "SNAP!!!", the left peg broke off. Closer inspection showed it to be an inferior weld. I brought it back to Lifan and they were more than happy and ready to replace with a brand-new peg. There was not even a hint of repairing via weld. Very classy.
    I asked to have the old peg back, but they were sending it on to the Lifan manufacturer for quality control. That is a good sign!!!

    PS - No worries Kevin! You probably saved my life! I had nightmares thinking about the what-if on a mountain ridge or the like. You the man!
