Just a final post on the Electric bikes.
I launched them to the public at the Laughton Autumn show in Sept, really to get the product into the public eye and see if the interest I thought was there really was. We sold every bike and took orders for more ...on the first day, cash up front, people lining up to use the credit card machine.
I really thought the market would be students and younger people, hardly any young people showed any interest. ALL went to people over 60 years old, all said they wanted to get mobile again in a small way, get down to the village for the paper etc. One even went to Ireland. I told the guy ,"it's going to cost up to ship" and "better check the laws there are the same as here". "I got to have it", was his reply, soon as poss (I checked the laws for him, same as here, he's loving it, and tells me all his mates want one, so watch out for the electric biker pensioner BP.
I guess I'll get the expected replies telling me how irresponsible I am to let the elderly creep up behind you on an electric bike (I've already heard on here I'm irresponsible to allow 14 year olds to do it).
Anyway, got a large batch arriving 12th Dec if anyone wants one.
