Buying a Chang Jiang 750 for other parts of China:

Big Bill's Bikes has restored CJ750 sidecars for clients from all over China and have been seeing an increasing amount of customers from other cities especially Shanghai, basically because of an increase in the expatriate community and also because Big Bill's Bikes is one of the few shops that sell these sidecars at a fair market price with absolutely no financial discrimination to foreigners. We also send lots of parts to Shanghai so talk to some of our friends in Shanghai and you can ride together.

Each city has different requirements and tolerance for riders. Find out the local rules and regulations for getting a Chang Jiang 750 registered, or find out if there are any restrictions to Chang Jiang 750 sidecars registered in other cities.
