Simplest is stokemonkey they simply use a hub motor for quietness and built in gear reduction to turn the crank on left side of bike, but there's no freewheeling, you have to keep pedaling along with the motor and most of the lazy asses who ride e bikes dont want any of that.
I personally think a high power assist on an e-bike is a life saver

Don't know -- any ol' 24vdc brushless blower should work ok, right? I've already wired a 24v tap to the SLA's for powering accessories.
How's this one look?

It pulls right out and goes right back in.
Ain't luv grand??
