Ice Bear Z50 Clone w/ Sidehack

I know a few guys have these, but there isn't a dedicated thread, so let's start one.

It came in a big box and was 99% assembled when it arrived ! I got it from SaferWholesale.com. Their website is shady-looking and there are some bad reviews floating around about them, but I'm pleased overall with this transaction. It took about 2 weeks from the time of order, and I only heard from SaferWholesale twice (about my order) during that time. 1. I got a confirmation immediately. 2. I got an email that my bike shipped with the freight carrier and tracking number. And every day I got an ad for an amazing new 50% off sale or some such. lol

I'm impressed with the build and paint quality. The Hack's turn signal setup is cheesy, but an easy upgrade awaits. I got it 4 days ago. It's done nothing but pour down rain since then, so I haven't had it out riding yet. :(



Unboxing is half the fun !

I guess the white and red ones will be for those who are late.
Mine has proven pretty stout,as in it will wheelie on the throttle from a standstill in first gear.
I took it to a feild party and gave thrill rides to several people . hilarity ensued.
Later my friends built a cardboard ramp and encouraged me to hit it. I thought they had the couch cushions under it, but no, they had the framed part of the couch. I went up and the thing flipped over backward on me. One tail-light crunched. At least I didn't get over and do a forward flip.
Once while I had a passenger I ran it up on a refridgerator box and it stopped so quick my passenger was nearly egected over the front.
So,be aware,alcahol and mini hacks ,caution advised.

Bar none, the boat seat and number plate are great additions. I'll be swiping those ideas from you soon enough. Lol

Depends... They try to hit you for delivery and title fees, but that can be offset some by coupon codes. Mine came in at 1129 shipped from Atlanta to PA.

Very cool. Saferwholesale.com is located near me. I visited them when I was shopping for a Chinese quad. It's definitely a low buck operation.

Just curious--what's the range on one tank of gas?

And has anybody discovered the top speed (actual not indicated)?
