    There are a lot of problems with that bike. Yea - it does have a powerful motor/battery combo, but everything else on that bike is super cheap. It won't hold up well with the loads that will be put on it.

    We've sold 3 or 4 of these so far this year:

    Much better quality componentry, a more reliable, though not as powerful Yamaha motor, and a company that will still be around in 5 years for support.

    1967 Bell UH-1 Iroquois(Huey)



    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    pretty cool Al, but a steep price tag.
    Looks like you could get 1 for about $2500 ?

    I do sell some of the Electra Townie Go! models for about $2500. The off road bikes with mid-drive systems are all right around $3000-$3500 with full suspension ones as much as $5000 or more. All depends on what you want.

    They are a blast to ride though. I've had one over 34mph.
