Likely a current or formerly contracted plant selling runovers, leftovers, etc. Happens all the time. Setup is too costly and the market too small, IMO, for them to be just clones.

It happens constantly. Foreign co. contracts Chinese firm for part, Chinese plant starts selling same thing on the side. R&D is done, they know there's a market, they know their are no repercussions. Epic is a classic example. This was a kayak manufacturer that contracted their fiberglass boats out to a Chinese firm. They duped the molds and started selling them under their own brand name at cut rate pricing.

Of course QC is nowhere near the same. It's always 'buyer beware.'

If you've got the time, could you post up some pre-install pictures of the product that you received?

Awesome. Let us know how the quality looks and if there are any blems/flaws in the finish.

Will do, but it'll be about a month till I see it. It's literally on the slow boat from China

know what I hate when ordering from china on ebay
I always check the shipping times
most always say ship next buisness day or once payment clears

and then it takes 15 days for the tracking number to show its been accepted

guess next buisness day means something different over there

Pics of the tail lights.

The finish looks good. From what I have seen on youtube the wires appear the same including the connectors and the gauge of the wire so we will see today. Will post pics later.

Here are the pics of the lights installed onto bike. the install was straight forward 3 screws off with the 2 screws on the inside. This is before and after pics lights on.

The goal was to be more visible. I would say they are more visible than before and they look cool so this is a success.

Awesome!

-How much were they?
-Where'd you buy them from?
-How do you feel about the quality so far?
