Here is my pretty straight forward conversion compared to some of the others in this thread. Personally, I prefer my before bike but converted it to an ebike until I resolve some lingering health issues... I will have it back to stock in the next year or so with any luck..

My first build. It's slowly taken me a while to finish it. A lot more work than I imagined because I'm new to building bicycles and some parts were irregular sizes and needed filing. But I love riding it so far!

I found the frame on the curb. It had been rusting and the fork was completely bent. I replaced almost all the parts except a few things that we're salvageable. The tank bag is custom made. It is laminated wood paneling on the top and bottom with 2 threaded rods bent over the top bar and through each piece with washers and nuts. The heavy canvas slip cover does not bear any weight. I was worried the battery might be too heavy for it but seems to hold to weight of the batteries and controller fine.

The motor is ampedbikes 500w 36v
Battery is 36v 10ah Ping LifePO4

Tell me about it... I ran out of money to get a leather nice saddle.

You know that feeling when you get on a new bike and immediately you want to upgrade the power or accessories?... it's endless :!:

Khouse. sweet ride. Love the shape of that frame. Do you know the brand, or is it homemade? The welds look a little less than professional from what I can see in the pics. The top of the rear section almost looks like a front fork.

The frame is made by specialized called "the shark". I believe it was a short-lived model cruiser from the late 80s- early 90s. It even has a bottle opener behind the stem!

ahhh, that's what it is....a bottle opener. That's the part I was looking at that looked a little off to me, but now it makes sense. It reminds me of the Electra townies and crusiers

Given all the choppers, recumbents, electrified VW buses... mine is a tad... anticlimactic.

But, thought I'd share with the group nontheless:

I love it... electrolytes to power the motor down low and electrolytes for the operator up high.

This is one of the 7 ebike I assembled for my familly!:

This is the setup I think that should satisfy completly every details about confort, torque and speed and range for everyone that want to get and enjoy an ebike.

- The range ( no pedaling is at least 50km NO PEDALING) and 100km with 50% pedaling)
- The max speed is set by the little red botton that limit the max speed for 32km/h, 38km/h or 47km/h
- It can climb any hill on road at 25km/h and up
- The motor and setup is very efficient ( 650W at 45km/h)
- The battery is a LiFePO4 of 48V 15Ah of 2000 cycles ( good for up to 100 000 km !)
- The dual suspension allo perfect confort eventhou you hit some putholes or craks on the pavement
-The bike is made os strong alluminium renforced with steel torque arm to support the high motor torque
- The total weight is 59lbs without the battery but compared to a scooter, it's lightweight and have the same range and great torque!
-The little Cycle aAnalyst computer allow you to monitor speed, power, Ah and total energy used per ride or overall, and the efficiency in Wh per km)

CURRENT PROJECT: 2WD duo MXUS/Max-E ebike 32kW
http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... =3&t=65764
-Fastest speed record 117 km/h on flat
-Fastest 1/4 mile@ 114km/h on flat and 16.316 sec
-Succeded to haul a 19200 pounds schoolbus!

Hmm. Before and after is difficult for the CrazyBike2, because it was designed to be an ebike to start with. However, it *is* operable without the motor and stuff, so here is a few pics to get the idea of what I started with and what I have it like now:

As it is right for the last two days:
Image

As it was before that for a couple of months or so:
Image

As it was before I changed out the seat:
Image

Now these are before adding the motor, but when I was still planning on using the treadmill motor:
Same seat with just one cargo pod:
Image
Image

Same seat but before the cargo pods:
Image
Image
Image

Pre-rideable stages:
Image
Image

Just before I changed the rear frame out entirely (mostly to get a different BB with square-taper spindle):
Image

Lots more on the project blog at http://electricle.blogspot.com

It's been an ongoing learning experience both with bikes and with motors and controllers and batteries, for the last couple of years at least. I look at some of my oldest posts and ideas, and realize they make me look like an idiot, but in some ways that's probably still true. :)

This bike's been in the works since early this year (2009), after having learned a lot with prior experiments, and deciding to "start from scratch".

It's nowhere near "finished", of course, but it sure is functional. Today I rode to work and back (about 5 miles total) without pedalling at around 18MPH easily, on this 120+ pound bike built out of recycled junk with 150 pound rider that feels like unrecycled junk. :)
