This bike was built to see how inexpensively it could be done. 70 dollars is about as cheap as it gets. The bike is used primarily for short run errands so the trailer will stayed attached most of the time. No provision has been made for carrying the batteries on the bike. The only things that I bought new were the controller and throttle. Everything else came from a swap meet or was found in the junk pile.
