TBR7 Motorcycle Built In A Day, Nope.

Neither was Rome built in a day. However, I too envision an empire of motorcycles for myself.

I may have let a few followers down since I thought I could have my TBR7 built in a day. In my last post(“TBR7 Unboxing Event!“), I only unboxed the the unassembled TBR7 motorcycle.

I only spent a few hours unboxing it, and it looks like once you toss on the handlebars and front wheel, the TBR7’s motorcycle engine can have its first test run. A few more hours after that, get brakes set up and finish up bodywork, the first test ride.

A Couple Of Tips If You Want To Get Your TBR7 Built In A Day.

  1. Search and watch YouTube videos on assembly.

    Some are very dated, and some are missing valuable information, so take older TBR7 assembly videos with a grain of salt.
  2. Hawk 250 and TT250’s are very similar motorcycles.

    So look up their assembly and repair videos and blogs. 
  3. Look up CSC Motorcycle reference material.

    They have some great motorcycles, TT250 was mentioned already, and more importantly, excellent references.
  4. Book mark everything!!!!

    This way, you can have quick links to material you might realize you need to pay further attention to when assembling the TBR7.
  5. Phone a friend.

    Sorry, the dated reference here. But yes, have a second set of hands.  
  6. Once you cut the metal strap that holds the motorcycle box to the pallet, move the whole package to the floor with a second or more people.

    Moving the box to a stable, flat surface will make it safer and easier to work around the box and unassemble it.

If you have TBR7 assembly tips, or for Hawk 250, or any similar Chinese motorcycles, please comment below. The motorcycles are being updated by the original manufacturer each year.

Also, some importers are putting their customs parts on the motorcycles. Which makes some assembly instructions vague for what model you get.

Just Me…Newly Licensed.

Hi I’m Tom, A New Motorcycle Rider and Blog Author.

I am a new rider(Pa Learners Permit at the end of 2020, and I received a Pa Motorcycle License in 2021 after passing a Motorcycle Safety Course).

I bought my first motorcycle, a TaoTao TBR7, at the beginning of 2021 and have been doing upgrades on that motorcycle since.

I added to my motorcycle collection by buying a Boom Vader Gen 2 in 2022, and that Grom-Clone motorcycle has been upgraded by me as well.

I continue to ride my Boom Vader Gen 2 motorcycle as well as my TaoTao TBR7 dual-sport bike.

Fun Fact: I’ve only been on one group ride.
