I think the moped or mini bike based ebikes are great for people that dont plan to pedal very much.
- For a cyclist or former cyclist like me, you must be able to adjust the seat height in order to enjoy the ebike.

Yes I agree. Stealth's are lousy pedal bikes to start with, because they weigh too much. For riders like myself that ride almost exclusively on the street the main reason for pedaling is to defend the bicycle loophole. At first I thought that might be a thing , but time and experience has shown it's not going to be an issue. That being the case I'm going for comfort, and style. Riding the Stealth like a pedal bike never did feel right to me.

This is my new Stealth Bomber, electric motor bicycle. So new in fact that I've only managed to pedal it up and down my block 2 times. I have plans to customize it to make it mine, but right now nothing is carved in stone. I welcome your suggestions. I ride in the concrete jungle, so that's the direction I'm heading with modifications.

All I've done to it so far is install low profile street tires to replace the knobblies that came on it from the factory. The only other work was to start installing a headlight. It didn't come with any lights or a kickstand.

The bike is officially designed to be a down hill racer, but I'll be using it more along the lines of a super motard that hardly ever sees the dirt.

Power output is electronically governed to the U.S. limit of 750w, and 20 mph top speed. Ungoverned off road power output is 4500w with a 50 mph top speed. The battery is 1500kW, with a 2 hour charge time, and up to 50 mile range.

It has something like 10" of suspension travel front and rear, adjustable for preload, and rebound.

This is the beginning.
