i have no time for this hobby anymore.its been 3 years since i tinkered with it. i love the bike, but am wanting an electric mountain bicycle for hunting and fun. the wife says i have to sell something to buy it. so here you go!
i will accept best offer within reason. 3 grand + would be nice. or something close. boxes of stock parts come with it.
Pics of bike are within my forum ALBUM posts. but ill upload some fresh ones when i can.
I'm in the St. Louis area. local pick up only. i won't ship bike, I want to sell all of it as a package deal , but may sell the radian arm and wheels on another listing.
My bike has been stored inside always. make an offer . thanks.
