    Has anybody ever bought a used prototype frame?

    Hello all, this forum seemed as close to what I could figure. I found a used prototype carbon fiber frame from KHS for sale and I was curious if anybody else has ever bought a used prototype frame before? My worries are finding parts to fit if it ever breaks, wold this be impossible or would I just be rooting around for random parts that fit? Also customer service, would the company even help me? Thanks for any insight, input or experiences.

    Expect to be SOL if problems arise. Prototypes are not intended for the general public. The company may even deny it is theirs.

    Donít expect any support.
    Bicycles donít have motors or batteries.

    Ebikes are not bicycles

    That was my worry exactly and the outcome of my email to KHS about the frame lol. "Looks like some cheap Chinese knockoff". Thanks for your input!

    Prototypes are usuall destroyed for liability reasons
