Looks like an old Honda or Suzuki? Interesting to see these older builds and kits. Looks fairly neat to me.

Nice build. If asked I would have said bigger than 1/24.
It looks like a Honda CJ360.

Yamaha XS1

It's a pretty good representation. He's even got the colours right. I wouldn't put it past a chinese model company to provide Honda decals for it though - stranger things have happened

Wrong model in the box? Fred is right about not trusting the chinese getting it right. I once saw a BMW twin labeled as a Kwaka in a servo, not a very good either. The closest Honda to the XS1 from the late '60s is the Black Bomber CB450, and only the motor has a close resemblance. the rest is completely different.

Yes it is one of the best chinese ones I've seen, much better than this one I got nearly 30 years ago.

This is the usual standard for these, a vague resemblance to the subject matter.

What brand is Ken's model? I'd be interested to see if they do a better rendition of the GT.

Interesting model Steve. Looks like a combination of GT750, "Bread bin" Trident/Rocket 3 and Monkey Bike.
Still, at least it's an attempt to make one.
