Basic Bike Info

Bicycle Type: 
Cruiser / Comfort Bike
Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features: 
Fairly new bicycle - purchased in fall of 2017. It is an electric bike with a battery behind the seat. The bike weighs a little over 60 pounds with the battery. The battery is locked into place with a small wire rack on top. The motor is in line with the frame. I replaced the handlebars with more-cruiser style handlebars and added a clip on cell phone holder and a brass bell. I don't have any photos of my own bike so I've attached a stock photo - the main difference being the handlebars.
