Battery pack with on-board charger

This is a Charger electric bike (color: black) that has the Golden Eagle Bike Engine Kit added. (We're selling this as we got a Piaggio MP3 scooter.)

We're not particularly mechanically inclined anymore and we never got the electric part of the bike working at top speed because we could not keep the wheel sensor properly aligned. We could get it up to about 17 mph on flat streets using electric and human pedaling only (properly aligned it should have done 20 mph). With the gas engine, the bike does get up to almost 30 mph on flat streets.

Have not used the electric since putting on the gas engine. Battery does not need to be on bike to operate as a bike or with the Robin/Subaru gas engine. We left all electrical components on the bike but you can take them off and will not effect rideability.

Bianchi Milano Cafe Racer, 7 speed town bike - SOLD

We're selling a Bianchi Milano cafe racer in celeste green color - SOLD.

This bike is the ultimate cruiser and commuter. It's light, switches gears like a charm and feels good to ride.

26 inch tires, 7 speed Shimano Nexus internal hub. Built in rear flashing light in seat. Fenders, kick stand, rear rack, bell, small seat bag.

The size of the bike is 18.5, which means the seat height and handlebar angle can be adjusted for a comfortable fit for people between approximately 5'8" and 6'3" depending on inseam. The top of the top tube is just a bit over 30" above the ground, and the specs list standover height as 31 inches. (See "How to Fit a Bicycle," by Peter White and "How to Fit Your Custom Bicycle" from Colorado Cyclist). Frame geometry for this 18.5 bike is available on the Bianchi site here (note that standover height is 31 inches, not 31 mm). See this diagram for frame dimensions.

A darn good looking bike, it's also super low maintenance and very cool for around town riding.

Ridden less than 100 miles. Always stored inside.

This has the enclosed Shimano Nexus 7 speed hub, which can be shifted when stopped - no dérailleurs.

This beautiful bike is in mint condition.

Located in Alexandria, VA, in the Del Ray area. Cash only, bring driver's license if you want to test ride.

If you have questions or would like to see it, please email hobnobblog -at-
