    That's got to be a con. I looked to see if it was April 1st but it's not. I'm not having it that that's real.

    The photo looks too fake, maybe the seller's name is a clue?

    Anyway if you were selling a one-off like that you would post loads of pics showing all the details, not just one crappy pic that looks like it's been lifted from a catalogue and photoshopped.

    I dont believe Cheryl Cole could ride this bike so the listing is probably innacurate anyway

    On further reflection, it could be possible to mime riding a bike so I retract my earlier comment

  6. These things are widely available in the US where they are usually fitted to single speed cruiser style bikes with coaster rear brakes - as far as I can tell it has no rear brake, the motor sprocket has replaced the original disc. So, no, it's not legal. But it's also not legal too.

    It's only not legal if used on the road. Off road is a different story.

    It will never be legal for the road. No matter what the vendor has said about the conversation held with VOSA, it will never be issued with an MOT certificate.

    Wouldn't want to ride one anyway. 2 smoke? No thanks.

    If I was in the market for a powered bike, it'd be that Specialized one released a while ago.

    It's not legal on or off road and would be impounded and destroyed if you were caught by the police in the UK.

    off road, on private property, perfectly legal. off road in public places, not so sure. Don't think the police would be able to impound it if it's not being used in an antisocial way as no law is actually being broken.

    Not to be sold or bought in this country. The build is not legal. Now if you made it yourself and used it on your own property that's fine.

    You can get electric conversion kits with that sort of speedas well, but as others have said no chance of them being legal over here.
