Additional FeaturesSpecial Thanks to the Filanc family, John Wang at Qglobal, Vic at Amazon bikes, Steve and Linda at CloudEV. Thanks for making this project possible. Had an AM/FM radio with computer speakers, but I took them off, it started to get too cluttered. The ETEK and Curtis combination is bulletproof. This thing runs like a scalded ape.
True Hybrid, pedals and gears fully functional for those days there is some type of "glitch". Pedals make it a bicycle, therefore no license, registration, insurance, and best of all no gasoline. Am working toward a more reasonable alternative to gasoline, next project will start with lightweight motorcycle chassis....stay tuned. Feel free to ask questions, will try to response to all inquiries.
