Norco A-Line 2009 + MXUS 3000 V3 Build

Hello guys,
few months ago I finished my second build: e-bike based on Norco A-Line 2009 frame.

Specs:

- MXUS 3000 V3 4T motor
- Adaptto Midi-E controller
- 18s MultiStar (16 Ah) lipo battery (3 packs in seriers)
- Custom CNCed dropouts (steel, 15mm width, 1 kg weight for both pieces)
- Geared HammerSchmidt FR crankset with 42t chainring. With 1.6x overdrive this creates virtual 67.2t chainring :)


I am very satisfied how bike performs. Acceleration is very nice and so is the handling (even with 6.5 kg battery mounted on the front fork).

born49, Great build!
And great choice of components. I am wondering about those Custom CNCed dropouts (steel, 15mm width, 1 kg weight for both pieces).
What would it cost to get more of those made?

Those CNCed dropouts are the BOMB.

Is this what it looked like before?

Hi Racer !

Sorry for my late response, I wasn't here for a while. Yes, original dropouts looked like the ones
on the picture you linked :)

I found some guy in my country who was kind enough to do laser measurements of original dropouts
and create digital model from it. I than re-modeled it into beefy dropouts suitable for MXUS motor.
The same guy who measured / modeled originals than created it on his CNC machine. I paid about
150 euro for it. If you want, I can ask him if he would be willing to create another pair and for
what price. Another possibility is to provide you (of course for free) 'STEP' 3D models, which
were used as source for CNC machine. I guess you should be able to find some individual / company
around you who should be able to create it without major problems :)

Here it what it looks like:
