Anyone familiar with this eBike?
The sellers states it's brand new and gave the following description.
Geared brushless motor
Aluminium alloy frame
wheel diameter 20"
Max rated load:100kg
Max full charge distance over 20km
Battery system :-
Motor:-power:180 watt(rear geared Brushless)
Charger:220V-240V Input voltage
I didn't want to spend $500 or more to convert my bike into and ebike and when I saw this I became curious to see if the parts are decent enough to scrap and use on my Dahon Speed D7.
He wants $325 for it. I figured I'd sell the bike for $80-$100 come Spring. Worth it? I'm looking to get a little assist on longer rides and to deal with headwinds.

Might be worth it but try to get an honest estimate of how much wear/life is on the motor and battery. Would not be much of a deal if you had to replace either right away.
Figure, you'll get about 12mph (20kph) and about the same in distance WITH pedaling..
Do you have a PIC of his bike?
He said Brand New.

If not then I'll just keep quiet and keep on pedaling.
I bought that exact type bike for my son...
It literally broke in half within 6 months..
Top speed on 36v is 18mph.
