I thought I'd start a thread on the retro 70's style mini bikes reimagined by Lithium Cycles called the Super 73 (Scout, Rose Ave, S1 etc).

If you've got one, post about it. If you are interested in them, post questions about them.

I own just about every kind of bike there is:

Hard Tail
Fat Bike
Full Suspension
Gravel
Tandem

and the the Super 73 is my first electric bike. I don't think it's as much a bike as it is a blast from my past, I was a kid of the 70's with a yellow mini bike powered by a lawnmower motor. It does have 2 wheels and I pedal it to get around, so it's definitely a bike. Just a different kind of fun.

Anyways, I'm not looking to create another debate about e-bikes vs regular bikes, there's already thousands of those. This is just a spot to talk about this tiny little nitch piece of nostalgia.

Yep, those are legal for class 1 only, your bike is class 2 unfortunately. I'm not sure why they didn't allow class 2, I advocated for both.

You might mention to the owners that an rpm-based PAS system could be an option instead of the throttle. A torque sensor, favored by some, is also possible, but probably more expensive. Unfortunately for my pocketbook, the offices are just down the street from my residence. Must stay away, must stay away.
