meyers motors is now the owner of the corbin sparrows. From what I understand they have fixed numerous design flaws in the early models and are a much better ride than buying an old project.

Myers, Tallmadge, OH

Myers is in Tallmadge Ohio less than a mile from my home or office. it's not unusual to one zipping around the neighborhood. They are quiet and plenty powerful--I've seen one unintentionally swap ends on a rain soaked uphill.

My opinion.... They are overpriced for what little you can do with them, (or what little I could do with one)
