Hi Bob - did you buy direct from day6bikes or somewhere else.  It looks amazing, but the price on the website is scaring me :-)

The closest dealer was about 300 miles away--Houston from north of Dallas so they sold directly to me but insisted that a local bicycle shop do the assembly. (Another $93)

A bit pricey for sure but an excellent bike.
Another $500 for the electric motor. Adds up.

I urge anyone thinking about building/retrofitting a bicycle powered at city street speeds, to use the best parts possible and design it for the purpose. People don't expect bicycles to be moving that fast so the need for defensive riding increases greatly. I also suggest skipping even the best bicycle frame and think motorcycle parts for speeds above 35mph.

There's a group of old Hot Rod builders around here that are building these cool old 1940's and 50's Schwinn's with full race Wizzer engine kits, They've been clocked at 70 mph through a local canyon.       Many things that are a lot of fun,  are a little dangerous.
