Should I buy this?

I'm looking to get an electric bicycle and I need to ask a couple questions about options available locally on Craigslist. Right now I'm looking at this http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/729646519.html

The little research I've done on Currie USPD systems seems positive. Is the price right? And more importantly, how would I go about changing the battery if necessary? Particularly with the Lithium options available now. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Re: Should I buy this?

A lot will depend on how it's to be used, how far , how steep, can you charge when you get there. I am a real shark when buying used, so I'd want at least $75 knocked off for new sla batteries, if its 24 v and a hundred if it's 36. Isn't the asking price about the same as the similar bike sold in wallmart? I don't know if the wallmart version was on a cheaper bike, or not.

Be the pack leader.
