I got a chinese e-bike conversion kit for only $69 a while back. When it arrived, I bought another one at the same price. I am happy that I did because they are now over $100 for the same thing.
But going into this project I realized that I may not be able to get this motor kit to fit on a bike here in the US. The parts alone are worth way more than what I paid for the kit so I was not worried.
Now I am trying to get this figured out. There were no instructions. Absolutely nothing. I had to figure out the wiring on the control box myself. I may make a video and article on that later to help other people.
But unless you are a fabricator or welder, you cannot get the motor to fit on most bikes. It sits at an angle no matter what I do and the chain falls off every time.
No problem though because I plan to use both of these to build an electric car in the Spring.
But I wanted an E-bike asap to save on gas. The gas prices are rising and its getting harder to afford those small trips into town.
I found the Cadillac of E-bikes online and ran to get it. This was only $150 for a bike that originally cost $1,400 over 20 years ago. That would be much more money in today's value.
This bike is clean and sleek. It is the smoothest bike I ever rode, pedal or otherwise. I cant wait to get the batteries built for it now.
