That sounds like a sweet setup. I asked because I was looking for cheap transportation for my daughter at university. I initially thought ebike but ended up going moped. I got the moped for $1200 + $150/year for plates and insurance. Sounds like if I would have been more resourceful I could have gone the ebike route for a lot less.
