Best Toy Ever

One of the best toys that a middle age man can have. I had a pleasure to ride this bike for 3 years and if not a head in collusion accident hadn't put me away from 2 wheelers I could ride it to the ground. Not suitable for conservative mind. Show details

Love the greaser and have 2. BUT can’t get any support or reply from Michael Blast for 6 months

No reply from Michael Blast. Even listed repairs can’t contact them. Love the bikes but will buy different brands as no support from Michael Blast. Send messages over 6 months with no response. Very poor Show details ·  1

Great bike and reliable service

It’s a beautiful head turner and I love riding this slowly so everyone can see it. Had problems with the battery but a solution was provided by the manufacturer. Thanks. Show details

Throttle only intermittently works. Headlight same thing. Dies each ride despite 3/4 charge indicated

Maiden voyage, throttle did not result in speed increase. Minutes later throttle worked. Headlight-intermittently works. Stopped working 1st ride despite having 3/4 of battery left per indicator. 2nd ride-almost made it around the block before motor stopped working. Looks beautiful and is comfortable but not functional. DO NOT PURCHASE. Show details

Best Purchase In The Longest Time

I've just clocked my first 1000km on my Greaser and i've never been so happy with any purchase. Ever.

I now ride to work, every day, and save a fortune on both parking and driving - And i have to admit it's pretty cool turning heads and having conversations with people who are so taken by it along the way.

It is literally faster, cheaper and easier for me to commute now on my Greaser than in a car, and it's of course great fun to just cruise on the weekends.

Only possible gripe would be maybe one or two extra gears given i'm riding in flat/downhill areas regularly and can pick up speed easily, but that's truly nitpicking! Other than that the build and quality is fantastic, couldn't fault it.

By a Greaser today, you won't regret it. Show details

Awesome bike

Bike has an exciting riding position. The balance and steering set up are quite different from most bikes I have ridden, it makes travelling at higher speeds a real pleasure. Show details ·  1

Fab ride!

I have lost my car license for 6 months and I thought it was the perfect way of getting the mobility i still need. Not sure I want my car back now!

March 25th 2019 Update: Just Ok

I love the look of it. It feels good to ride but the battery capacity is not great. Looking at buying a second one. Not cheap either $600-$650.
Also some design issues with brackets rubbing, taking the paint off the the body...only after 3 weeks. A bit annoyed. Show details

Almost at 1,000km. Love every k. Use it to get to work - to hit the beach - to just go and clear my head

They are attractive & functional.
I didn’t put a throttle on so I can get some exercise while having fun
Some battery on way to work. A touch of power coming home. Show details ·  1

Could not be happier with my bike

From my earliest enquires to my subsequent purchase & the fun of riding a bike after many years not riding the whole experience has been awesome.
My greaser has opened up a whole new world & enables me to ride further with the battery when I get tired. A very well built bike that will give anyone who purchases one years of reliable service Show details ·  1

Excellent A++

Well built. Well powered. Excellent, fun machine. Excellent for easy daily commutes or just cruising and looking good, Gets all the attention and questions from the public young and old alike. an ability to lock off the electronics and wheel and some storage in the "tank" would be some handy improvements that would make an absolutely awesome machine even better Show details ·  1

The future

Absolutely addicted to this machine and it ticks all the boxes. Easy to assemble, fast, fun, bloody good looking! Since receiving my Greaser I have barely even used my car. Onlookers can’t help but stare... These are definitely the future! Show details ·  2

I have been dealing with Error 30 for over a month. I live in CA and I bought my Greaser through Surface604.com in Canada. At first, their customer serve was great and they helped me with an Error 13 code. Unfortunately, Error 30 has been more of a challenge. After going through a series of try this, try that to no avail, I stripped the bike and mailed all the parts to them ($650 for shipping). They said it was a bad wiring harness; so they were supposed to mail me a good harness but it comes back marked as the bad harness and I still have the same Error. It's been 5 days with no reply. Now I'm worried about getting stuck (when it's fixed) and limited customer service.
