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.

Reason: Forgot to add pictures.
Figure, you'll get about 12mph (20kph) and about the same in distance WITH pedaling..
Do you have a PIC of his bike?
Sorry I totally forgot somehow. Added now.
I'm looking for an easy swap without having to rebuild wheels, buy new parts, etc....If that is possible then it might be worthwhile for me to scrap the parts, sell the bike, looking at a final cost of $225-$250 if I can get $75-$100 for the bike which I should be able to around here in Spring. If not then I'll just keep quiet and keep on pedaling.
