I decided to build an electric bike. I was inspired by a build found by my buddy Al. Here is the website for the inspiration. http://www.vintageelectricbikes.com/#!home/mainPage I think I can duplicate the bike for around $1000.00 I found the bicycle on Ebay for $300 delivered to my door. The decals were also on Ebay. I haven't decided which electric wheel kit yet. So far I have just assembled the bicycle. The bars and stem are not stock. I plan to weld some truss rods onto the fork. I will have to change the front wheel and tire to 26" to match the rear with the motor. The front hub should be upgraded anyway. The Chinese hubs are notoriously poor quality.
