That is neat. Someone has some imagination and the skills to pull it off. Great project. I don't think that asking price is even that bad considering this is completely custom and the execution seem to be excellent.

I think it needs at least a straight six, but other than that it is very well done. Thanks for posting it.
It was the last one ...

Awesome look. But probably not very good high speed handling dynamics, more of a boardwalk or parade rider.

Pretty sure that's all of an older moped under there with a 48V or 72V scooter motor laced into the rear rim. Price is probably out of line, but this is a lot more along the lines of a motorcycle than a bicycle.
