Sweet! We need more pics pls. Did you need to alter the frame or did the tangent drive fit straight in?
Does the chainline stay stationary while swing arm moves? It seems so from the pic but I don't know Zerode frame.

she started life as an ugly as hell hardtail conversion. Eventually I went into maximum overdrive on her

https://imgur.com/a/VHPwZ

upgraded from 48v to 72v @ 20ah, same hub but ventilated now and running 100+amps, shunt modded the controller, replaced the fets with 4110's, built an entire 12v side, added regen braking, added a BMS protected LiFePo4 battery, added onboard charging (will likely build a J1772 adapter box soon), beefed up the phase cables, and replaced the CAv3 with a KT LCD3. I'll likely get the motocross seat for the enduro frame as the bike seat is a pain in the ass to get on and off of since I'm pretty short at 5'9".

Always room for well made step thru frames. Those can be really nice for daily riding around town.

I bought one of those hard cases from my shop, just to see what I could do with it. My boss called it a trash can. :) I still haven't figured out an arrangement for it where I get to open the lid even 90 degrees. (On my bikes, the seat is above and overhanging the rack.)
This is to express my gratitude to Justin of Grin Technologies for his extraordinary measures to save this forum for the benefit of all.

Thought i would share a pic of my new baby.
Have had this bike for many years gathering dust, with the demise of my ute, i decided the time was right for an ebike.

Image
BBSHD with 48V 11Ah battery.

I was initially worried about mounting this kit to the frame, and thought i would have to build a custom battery box, but it has actually worked out perfectly.
Really happy with it, and having a blast commuting to work... Have a rack, panniers and guards on the way, and will be wiring up lights to the pack as well.

Sorry I don't have a before pic but here is my latest build based on a Haro Extreme X7 I have owned for years. I have fitted a BBSHD and carry a 52v 17.5ah battery in my bag. :)

That's without the white dog crate/kennel in the cargo area (it's still designed to slide in there to carry the dogs or loose cargo that wouldnt' sit or strap into the bed easily). Not all of the woodwork is complete; eventually once I have enough lightweight wood in decent shape, the sides and back of the cargo area will have removable panels to replace the need for the crate/kennel. That will give more room for the dogs and look nicer, as well as providing more insulation against the direct sun heating it up inside (aided by better ventilation than is possible with the crate/kennel). Yogi pretty well completely fills the plastic one:

"Original" appearance was a pile of cut up bike parts and scrap tubing/etc. :lol: But it's first pedalable appearance was this, back in March 2015
Image

First decent appearance was
Image
Had painted coroplast fenders and front "triangle" cover, which were easily damaged and only ziptied on.

Last appearance December 2016
Image
All the covering was removed while the frame was reworked to move weight forward and add more secure cargo area, fix seating, pedal drivetrain, etc.

Before: Stock Giant Stiletto

Image

After: 1000W Currie permanent magnet motor with roller clutch on the drive shaft turning a 13 tooth cog, with a chain turning a 68 tooth cog turning a bottom bracket. On the other side of the BB are 2 chain rings one is fixed to the BB shaft with a chain to the rear cassette the other is a BMX freewheel with a chain to the pedal BB. When I pedal with no power I don't have to turn the motor, when I motor I don't have to pedal & I can motor and pedal at the same time. Controller is a 100A 48V Kelly with the limit set at 40A, the battery is 36V, 30A continuous, 70A max output. It goes OK but not as good as it did with the first unlimited battery I used about 10 years ago. I was pulling about 70A from some paralleled NIMH packs, they lasted about a week before they burned. I'm ordering a 48V pack for it. It has a right hand twist throttle, left hand rear 7 speed grip shift.

Thanks for the kind words. I know its cheating but unfortunately its not an easy frame to mount a battery to. I would if I could though. :D

neil.b,
I believe that, for off road riding, a backpack battery is better than a frame mounted one. On my first build I switched from a battery box to a backpack and I went for a backpack from the get go with my second build.

Don't believe everything you think.

I agree that the backpack battery is better for off road. I have tried it both ways with my BBS02 on my hard tail and it definitely feels more like a motorcycle with that extra weight on the frame, although its much more convenient for the day to day use.

I bought a frame and build a bike. This is the first time I've build a bike from frame. It was an eye opening experience. I enjoyed it. This is an economy build sourcing parts from ebay, amazon, etc.
The hub is 48v 1000w motor off ebay.
Very clean looking build chefkendra. Hope you get a lot of miles out of it.
