A Texas distributor has voluntarily recalled Fushin ATVs for not having front brakes among other things. The 90cc quads sold for a few hundred bucks and were, obviously, made in China.
I can't see myself putting my kid on a 90cc quad that has no. front. brakes.
If you or someone you know has one of these quads, please let them know that they can take them back for a free fix, and that it'll be well worth it considering the consequences.
