Technically it's still a bicycle so it doesn't have to registered or insured. It's virtually quiet and looks like a bicycle unless you look at it up close.Did this need to be licensed / plated?
and can you recharge off of a 110V plug or do you need the special charger I saw earlier in the thread.
30mph seems plenty to me.Yes that's about how much the electrical components cost not including the bike. You can certainly spend less but you won't go as fast. My first build cost me $700, and it topped out at 30mph.
