    I like the looks and the build- simple, clean lines and very functional. Nice work. None of my business, but what is a ballpark cost of this type of setup.? What size hub motor did you get? Thanks. I am busy with a pusher but have a 2 wheel recumbent I would like to try your set up on.

    Great ride. Looks very cool with the ape hangers on it.

    I have an electric front hub on one of my choppers also. I've been warned about using the front electric hub with aluminum forks. I hear the welds are not as strong as steel and the welds have broke and caused serious injury. This spring I am going to install extra axle/fork supports just in case. So far I have hundreds of miles on mine with zero problems. Well anyways, you may have heard this before... but just a heads up to keep you safe.____ Once again bikeman... great bike have fun!

    nice build...I like stretches ;)
    hub motors also have enough torque to spread the dropouts !!!

    His forks are actually steel. If you go to his sight, he has a video describing the bike and a short test drive. Looks good!

    Great Bike! What I said about the aluminum forks in a previous post... "never mind" HaHaHa. I may have to switch to steel also. These quiet ninja bikes are a lot of fun aren't they.
