Endless-sphere.com has a lot of very cool projects, and I really liked this conversion of a classic mountain bike to electric power.
Here is the finished bike:
Battery box, LED headlights, and control panel on the front, electric hub on the back. Pretty slick!
Crystalyte HS3540 Electric Hub Motor powers this project…
Dashboard includes GPS navigation…
A bike like this can apparently reach speeds of 45 MPH, so a suspension is helpful even on smooth roads!
Check out the original article for much more information. The machine work required looks very straightforward. I’d love to have a bike like this I could ride to the beach. It’s definitely a bikable distance away, but there is a lot of vertical distance that has to be traversed on the return trip.
