Their site lists the price as "serious offers". They have a nice build thread here.

Not a bad looking bike.
My wife rides the same machine only stock and in black. I hate they these bikes look with out the side cover.
But I hate the cost of replacing the side cover.

By the way, what headlight ears are those?

I can say for sure that if you switch to a lithium battery, there is room under the smallest solo seat for a battery. They are less that 2.5 pounds and they are 1/4 to 1/3 the size of stock battery.

I'm still waiting on my new cafe tail to arrive. Once received, I'll place a new gel battery under the tail piece and remove the clunky old battery.

I'm with Bill, If I may, pick up a Shorai Lithium battery, and leave the gel on the shelf. They are heavy, expensive, and not any better, or more reliable than a standard lead acid.

I welcome any and all couch surfers if you are traveling through Augusta. I even have a well stocked garage for emergent repairs.
