Instead of 'Motorcycle General Discussion', shouldn't this be under 'Current Events?"




HAR! I kill me!

No head light, no tail light, no provision for extra battery(s). Ever try pedaling a 72# bicycle? Obviously, you extend battery life by using the pedals for acceleration from a stop.
But, I like the bicycle camouflage styling and park anywhere convenience. The rack and saddlebags are perfect. I can't wait to wrap LED lights around the frame at Christmas.
As far a security goes, if the batteries are the most expensive part of the bike then how about a removable battery pack I can take indoors to recharge and hide from thieves?

Ive been seeing quite a few of these buzzing around SF and checked out a few reviews a month or so ago. It only weights twice my mountain bike, but doubt it would like my girth on it. If I still lived in the city it would be a commute option.

I can see where the lockup would be a problem. Easily solved by engineering a few welded loops in key positions.

Interesting motorised bicycle........

Well the 80cc fully licensed beach cruisers I use to build got about 150 MPG and topped out at around 40 mph.

And they looked a lot cooler too. Cost breakdown:

Huffy Cambrige Cruiser: $80.00
80cc Motor Kit: 90.00
Assorted do-dads: 50.00
Total cost: $220.00

Just ask Buz how his is holding up.

My buddy made a Cuddymobile, down right scary riding that thing down a hill trying to stop on a beach cruiser at that speed. Smokin' white wall...
