    $50.00 in operating condition- anything can happen. An additional hundred or two to make it my own.

    Bike will cruise in the power band at 45mph. Will take decent size hills with ease. You can run this bike for miles at a time basically if it has gas it will keep on trucking.

    The power band is awesome when it kicks in.

    All said and done about $572 and a LOT of time.
