Thanks for posting this (not yours' Syd, Lol). I went to their website and read through most of it. This is interesting enough to me that I might consider investing in the company. It's a shame that they couldn't keep the business entirely in the U.S., however. But, I understand that in order to compete in pricing and delivery times, they didn't have too much choice.

A lot of that machine looks to be made of existing moped parts.

The fork looks like an EBR hydro for a Puch, the frame has a top brace added, but looks like a clone of a Kromag (JCP Pinto, Sears FreeSpirit). The wheels look like Bernardis for a Peugeot and the front brake looks to be derived from a Mike Thomas disc conversion kit.

The seat, electric powertrain and left-side pedal system look to be the only non-borrowed parts.

Not surprising that many of the components of the Monday electric resemble those from a moped considering one of the founders has a history with them.
