Re: $1,000 motorized bikes
I'll have about a grand in my Mango / Staton when done.
Mango Toucan 3 $400
Staton rear friction drive $400
Origin 8 cargo unit $ 70
Gas Tank $ 30
Kick Stand $ 30
Lock $ 15
Paint & Hardware $ 30
That's about twice what the OP Roller and the happy time combo cost. But a lot less work and a lot less frustration.
The only thing in my garage with 4 wheels is the lawnmower
