I have been looking for answers for a while, and I’ve gotten two completely different answers as to why it could be. One is some sort of Harley Davidson collaboration, and the second one was that it is a Kymco. What do you think?

Yes, the engine looks like the Kymco 125; the rest looks like it's from the decade small HD look-alikes were the rage.

Yep. Chinese engine. Good luck finding out which one. The same Company will make 1,000 engines and have 1,000 different names.

For a second there, I thought you had that rare Kieth Black super secret racing engine. lol.

There is one of those cruising around SW Wisconsin. I thought it was a garage build/hack.

I recently saw one of those for sale on Wisconsin and Illinois Craigslist. It's definitely a Chinese engine on a Chinese bike.

Unfortunately, due to how Chinese firms operate you can have hundreds of companies making the same exact bike. On My Way Motor is one company. Saferwholesale in Canada and Chicago also imports the things.

It kind of reminds me of the Harley Sprints produced mid 60s to mid 70s. I think Harley went in with an Italian company to build these bikes. Seat and frame on yours looks totally different from the stock Sprints I've seen but I see some engine similarities.

YUP, It looks like it has traces of Honda I don't imagine it runs, if it does, good luck but just ride it in the driveway.
It looks like a hodge-podge of various brands of Chinese bikes, I could never entertain the idea of owing a Chinese
bike, too chintsy ! Got lots of respect for Honda and I rode an M50 made by Suzuki for a 150 miles, I liked that bike.

Hello Mr. Porkster

Actually I like Chinese food, got a place up around the corner 'Wok an Roll' Hell maybe they got something right for
a change, I never got sick from eating Egg Foo young or beef an broccoli or wanton soup an brown rice or a dozen
other plates they do up, I just won't buy anything else from them, like bikes, toothpaste, dog food or wall board.

Me rika Chinee food? OMG! I've never been so offended in my life! Even Mel Brooks would find that statement offensive. As soon as I finish my Global Human Acceptance Studies homework, and have dinner that my Mom made, I'm coming out of my basement and am going to protest.

I'm going to fire up my Ying Jouw Baka Soo 50cc scooter and ride it to the end of the driveway. From there I'll take public transportation to the corner of 'Porky and Raciest' so I can protest (at least till my Mom calls and says I have to come home). Who's with me?

I'm pretty sure I can see the plate on the side of the steering neck that contains all the info you should need for ID. Simple vin search should provide the answer.
