Sounds like my bike Big. Steel cruizer frame, steel rims with 12 guage spoke's, Ammo cans for side cases for battery and tools. All the electrics plus Windscreen, speedometer and everything else I could think of to put on it. Yeah, I'm sure it weighs a ton. And to top it all off, I weigh around 230lbs.
I'm forever checking and oiling and adjusting. If I HAD to I could pedal a few blocks on mine, but I wouldn't like it.
