Hung, M.A. During “National Consumer Protection Week”, I am writing to report the 2003 Derbi Boulevard 150 CC Motorcycle Serviced by Champion Cycle Center, Inc. of Chicago at 3625 North Western Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60618 USA and its employees who have damaged this brand new motorcycle purchase in June 2003 throughout November 11, 2004, during the course of motorcycle service, maintenance, tune-up, and repair. On November 11, 2004, the Derbi motorcycle battery stopped working due to frayed electrical wires, and electrical power discharge given a cracked hole at the bottom of the battery compartment caused by JonJohn, motorcycle mechanic on-site. In addition, there is the omission of the battery plate with a cracked hole, which has been removed since then by Champion Cycle Center, Inc. employees on-site during 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007, inclusive. The removal of the battery plate under the saddle seat has caused extreme weather exposure outside the service shop where is kept, as well as electrical discharge and battery leakage resulting in complete oxidation (rust) and permanent damage and losses to the electrical wiring system of the motorcycle, battery posts, and to the entire motorcycle operating system of the motor vehicle itself at the Champion Cycle Center, Inc. Service Shop in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois USA. In addition, this 2003 Derbi Boulevard 150 CC Motorcycle is missing the required Foot Brake, as well as (2) brake pads which have slid and shirred off the disc drum brakes. In addition, the 2003 Derbi Boulevard 150 CC Motorcycle has a damaged Throttle and does not start. It is inoperable and useless in complete disrepair. Signed by Gardenia C.
