notoriety of the Sinclair C5 has made it a hugely collectable
item. Examples are not too difficult to find but can attract
extraordinary second-hand prices, going for as much as £800
- twice the original purchase price! The Zike electric bicycle
actually sold fewer units than the C5 but it has not yet become
nearly as sought after, despite its rarity. The Zeta range
of bicycle motors are fairly easy to obtain, and so are quite
cheap to buy second-hand. The Wheelchair Drive Unit and SeaScooter
can be bought as new from online shops.
note that items offered for sale through eBay are usually
second-hand and sold without any guarantees of any sort. They
may well be sold without packaging or instructions, and may
not even work at all. If you have any queries about an item
