Solar-powered Bike

At last – a solar powered electric bicycle. If you get tired and need a little help, just switch on and let this green electric wonder take over. Who needs cars? The E-V Sunny Bicycle has solar panels incorporated in the wheels charging a battery at the back of the bicycle. Designed by Canadian, Peter Sandler of Therapy Products, this is apparently the first all-solar electric bicycle.
The bike is propelled by a 500 watt front hub motor. The variable speed electronic controller drives the bike to speeds of up to 30 kilometers per hour. Overall weight of the bicycle is 75 lbs. Cost of the E-V Sunny Bicycle is $1295.00 and comes with a 90-day warrantee (sic) - is that the same as a warranty?.
