Additional FeaturesI tried to keep this vehicle legal to the California code regarding motorized bicycles. It is not a Moped. This vehicle will not go faster than 20 mph on level ground. It is under 1000 watts (motor) Has bicycle style lights for night use. I had to modify the back hub to hold a disc. The front wheel had to be changed to accept the disc brake. The 72 tooth sprocket is held on to the back wheel by an adapter that allows any sprocket machined properly to freewheel on any standard bicycle hub.
This bike has major cool factor but if I did it again I'd use scooter parts. Much cheaper.
