What do you get when you breed a down hill mountain bike with a pit bike? This awesome piece of fun.

Yes, a CRF450 is faster off road and a DH Mountain bike is faster downhill, but you canít ride a CRF450 on the street without registration, and the motoped is a hell of a lot faster uphill than a DH bike. The Motoped is extremely light and uses the latest in mountain bike suspension. This makes it a versatile bike with the same foot-print on the ground as most downhill mountain bikes. Riding it with the motor off on a steep trail feels like a heavy mountain bike. When the rider reaches the bottom of the trail, the motor can be turned on and the bike ridden on the road. NEVER ride bicycle trails with the motor on.

The Motoped is also a blast to ride on motorcycle trails and fire roads. It can be ridden surprisingly fast and is a lot of fun.

You can also get around town with maximum efficiency. The Motoped achieves 80-100 mpg.


They have a kickstarter page for it with some videos and information.

As well as a regular website where you can buy the parts. The only custom piece is the main/sub frame they sell. If you have a pitbike engine laying around your good. after that its just regular mountian bike parts.
