    no doubt it's a nice build
    raw speed ...i suggest a small clear visor
    just big enough to help with wind resistance
    i seen a sweet one for steebikes that was
    wind tunnel tested to create a pocket
    around the driver...anything over 30 and
    it becomes evedent quickly

    You took off the zip motor and added a new motor at the back. Is it a crystalite?
    What type of batteries and controller did you use.

    Good looking mod.

    im using the goldenmotor at 60v with a lifepo4 at 48v and a sla at 12v. im ordering 2x 36v lifepo4 in series. and next spring upgrading the hubmotor to a 5305 or 5304.
    You have a LiFePO4 and a SLA hooked up in series?

    I am not sure anyone has tried that yet? How does it do?

    cheers
    i think that double shock looks cool but is overkill...are you going to a single
    shock? very clean build btw
    i may copy your work on mine(flatery...)as those hooligan's are pretty cheap
    how about some closer shots of the final setup on the frame(pivot) thx

    hi karma,
    im new to ebike mod builds,i admire your skills
    i need your point of view on a couple of electric motor set ups
    ive seen you build on others threads on this forum that im interested in...

    first i think it was either a 36v or 48v 1000watt curries style set up you put together,where the motor is mounted on the left hand side on the rear wheel,what is your opinion on this type of set up..any good points or bad points.to expect..

    also ive seen one where you have mounted the same motor(i think it was)in the middle of the frame
    using the bikes gears,similar to cyclones kit...again if you could share your experience with this set up running at 36v or 48v.also any good or bad things to expect...

    my goal is to build a ebike that will go 30mph on flat,+have good torqe,& semi steepish hill climbing ability.
    my budget for this build would be around $500.00 to $800.00aus excluding the mountain bike...

    im shure your input,is reliable + informative...
    hope to hear from you soon

    thanks for your time.
    al

    hi karma,
    thanks for your input,from watching your vid on utube(which shows good footage).
    i think the cyclone style kit,could be a bit dangerous in the case of some sort of failure at
    25+mph speeds..
    i currently own a 36v 400watt front wheel ebike,ive been riding it now about a year
    with no probs..so for reliability,hub motors gets a from me.

    so for my project build im thinking of ordering a 450watt 36v geared motor (currie style)
    + motor mount.whick will make motor installation alot easier..and plan on mod it to 48v..+
    cooling the motor.i read about on endlessphere.com.
    Q, do you know of anyone that supplys the 36v1000watt motor..i cant find anyone with stock..
    also.in a couple of weeks im buying a 2nd hand electric moped 200watt to modify..60v..
    for some reason emoped site only claims 200watt 48v 20amp @25-30 kph,im after 55-60 kph
    i think its the smaller wheel size..
    anyway im ordering the 450watt motor+parts from tncscooters.com,
    they seem cheap+are quick to response to emails.
    once again thanks alot for your input.

    motors all over the place...

    That doesn't look very comfortable at all. I would love to see a vid of a ride though.

    hey karma hows the build going?
    when you swapped front ends on your izip was there a difference in length of the stem?
    mine looks like a 1 inch difference? did you have to modify or swap the neck tube?
    if so how? i have the same bike and want to use the zoom forks and upgrade to disc brake on the front
    also have a cranked bike i'm modding as well
    any help or heads up would be great

    thx wasp
