Slick work there Dave? is it? Recently knew Aussie has joined the ranks WooTz
well done anywayz matey... Only thing i might suggest? is flipping the controller
to the top of the battery box, still down low near the BB just on top not underneath
i would be a little concerned about debri/water flicking off the tires and onto the controller...

Thanks Kim; sorry for the late reply! I'll see how it goes down there, I like having the controller partially hidden behind the crank. Also, it's only a road bike for those sunny weather days so should stay relatively dry & clean. Worst case scenario, a new $30 controller and lesson learnt!

Am thinking on that... just trying to geter done for time being. Aluminum heat sink plate beneath? PC fan in box cool it enough? Perhaps vent in box with PC fan?

Evoforce had one of his flaps open where he stored his controller at the Death Race? Holes would suffice and perhaps white color?

Before

Townie 8 Speed with internal cabling. The cables run inside the frame for part of thier run.

Image

After Conversion.

Added two Internal Magic Pie 3 Motors, a rack with three batteries, lights and a Cycle Analyst. I Built this bike once with my first two pre-release MP3 Motors. It was a quick build with little effort to keep the "clean look".

Image

Then I completly stripped it when I received my second set of MP3 pre-release motors. Since the wiring harness has changed nothing is compatible with the frist two motors so everything had to be replaced, motors, levers, buttons, trottle, etc.

This time I took alot of care to give it as clean of a look as possible. I routed all the wires through the frame along side or the original cableling.

I think it turned out pretty good and I absolutly love it!

After looking at that last picture of my bike I can see I should level the battery rack as it was before. I think it looks better that way.

I dont think they are nessasary. I did put rear one on a few other bikes that did not have such a good mounting surface but this bike seems fine.

Retail...Roughly..
2 x mp3 = 800
3 x battery = 1425
Rack 30
Cycle analyst 150
Bike 800
Lights 30
Plus taxes is over 3500, Ouch :) Its a long way from a 3 or 4 hundred dollar kit!

But in my mind since I represent Golden Motor I think I deserve the best they have :)

I have the wife convinced I built it to sell it, but that's a laugh! would you sell it? Good thing she doesn't read ebike forums :)

I spliced the two wire harnesses from the motors into one. Here is a video from when I did it the first time..
