Hi Farfle, Awesome!
I may be interested in one of these!
Though there are a couple of reasons I may be a late-commer...
1. I may need a different geometry for where the uppers mount to this lower...just forward and down some...to be determined.
2. I may need the dropout geometry modified...to the left, and likely wider...if I decide to go with a left hand drive setup, as the left side of the BB does not line up with the left side of the DO, hence this Genesis in stock form won't allow a straight chain line on the left side from what I can see.
2. Money! For me it is hard to come by, but I will get there! So far it has taken me ~2 years to accumulate this frame/bike, a 80-100-130, and a fox 40 fork, but that's about it so far (I just won a hub/rim/tire that is compatible with the fox two days ago on ebay for $65 bucks! When it gets here, it will be the first time the bike has had two tires on it...!
So it's a slow build, But I am determined to see this dream come true...and I "don't like" to do things half-assed, so I must do things as I can.
I haven't started a thread for this build yet, but I will very soon, as I need direction from those with more experience to help get me to the next step...a working drive train "idea" for this bike with a non-hub motor.
What an awesome surprise that I discover that YOU are making a custom lower for the frame I have been starring at for 2 years...wondering what to do about the problems I foresaw with being successful with this project!
Ebike: Wallmart Genesis frame, unique Lovejoy 2-speed simplified/redundant drive mounted on custom aluminum swingarm conceptualized by me, machined by Thud. Brushless 80-100~100kv w/halls, 16s6p - 59.9v, 30Ah, 1.7+KWh, Fully Loaded Lyen 12 FET 3077 controller w/ Cycle-Analyst, full custom lighting.
