    This is a new Bike from Felt coming 2010. It has a steel frame and tank. Looks like a Board Tracker. I am planning to get this bike.

    Spend $50 and get the Slater. It has a three speed rear hub (which you won't use with a motor), a springer fork (which you will) and if you turn the handlebars upside down you'll get your board tracker look.

    yeah... it's a Monark style fork.
    I think it's the fork that makes the Slater look so kewl... The Revolver would be best if it had that fork!! ;)

    The Slater is also an aluminum frame which I prefer over the steel ones. The aluminum frames have a much larger top tank and hold about the same as a standard chengine tank. About 2.5 liters. The steel frames only hold about a liter so you can see less than half the size.

    After a closer look, they are a version of the Monark ... but not a reproduction of the exact Monark springer fork. Sorry Venice... I didn't see your post before I added my 2 cents.

    In the specs it says steel tank frame. Imagine that thing with a morini all dolled up! WOW, that kind of bike needs nothing but the best with a lotta love put into the build. T hat wouldnt couldnt be an everyday rider. I could never leave it outta my sight for fear of theft or vandalism.

    The top bar on these bikes can be converted to hold fuel. I know a little bit about this :)

    See here: Shift Kit + Nuvinci = (Grin)

    The Felt frames come in two varieties. Steel and Aluminum. They are different in more ways than just the material. Unfortunately the steel version has a narrow top tube and won't hold much fuel. Personally I wouldn't bother with a steel Felt frame. The aluminum version is much much wider and holds about as much as a standard peanut tank or 2.5 liters. An aluminum frame requires extra attention to the motor mounts however since aluminum is a softer material.

    I hope this clears this up for you.
