Orphaned technology - I understand there are people that attempt to support them but good luck with getting much money for something that could quit at any moment with little to no parts/labor available to repair.

I'll start the bidding at $1 and pay shipping...

Value of TF M-750

They have been going for between $2k and $2.5K recently. If yours is in good shape and the batteries are fine, then I would start at $2.5K and work down from there if there are no takers.

Support for TF bikes

Oh, btw, there are resources available to repair and maintain TF bikes. You just need to ask and you'll get that info. It may be orphaned, but it's still one of the finest ebikes out there.

Tidalforce charger

I would say somewhere in the $50.00 range would be appropriate.

Tf

minimum 1000 dollars.
is it X model/not limited/ or regular , how old, well cared for?

LEVT is service company for all TFs.
technology is NOT orphaned, E+ bicycle manufactured in USA is based/improved on TF.
just Google "E+ bike".
Ambroseliao,
agree one of the finest - that is for sure, mainly because made-in USA.
And TF motor/controller is widely consider one of the best in the world. No Chinese crudiness here.
just solid made-in USA quality and it lasts!
I own TF with 14,100km on it!!!
Of course not on original battery.
Where are you located?

It doesn't really matter how much he paid for it, does it? He got an incredible deal. He should profit from it! What he paid for it doesn't affect what it's worth! :-)

I'll have to tell my friend about the E+ Bike company since he recently had issue with his.

TF is still "orphaned" in my opinion but nice to see they have a foster family attempting to keep the design alive. Dang, those prices though - need to be a government worker/contarctor to afford one of those...

I'm sure their stuff is great but I can't afford those prices - I can barely afford the Crudy Crystalyte Phoenix stuff as it is...

I have to admit I did not intend on keeping this bike for long but now I am having second thoughts. After some minor repairs and a new charger I just may be hooked! It certainly is a lot of fun to ride.

I've been told that it's a good idea to send the controller to LEVT for them to perform the 1000W mod. The stock M-750 has 750W but the X mod gets you to 1000W for price of a software patch!
