The crate escape

Published: 03 February 2007

MCN's production editor Marc Abbott has taken delivery of a Lifan GY200 enduro bike. 

Join him as the wrapping comes off the crate. 

£500 for a road legal bike delivered to your door (albeit in pieces) is an offer not to be sniffed at.

But the real test of this Chinese Honda XL/XR clone will be how it stands up to the daily commute on tarmac and trails. 

Keep your eyes peeled for further updates, including video of it being fired up for the first time.
