Re-reading the thread, it looks like you want to stay under the magic 1K to remain in the electric bicycle class.

Your cycle is so light, you could make it into a sleeper if you wanted to!

At 72 volts, anything 14 amps or over would be past the electric bike official rating! That also means your bike is going to be a real amp-sipper.

The thing will get about the equivelent of a thousand miles per gallon!
