Get a hold of Matt at EMPowered Cycles and see if he can make a sensible kit for your bike. A modest mid-drive at 36v will prolly be all the wheels and chassis can handle, long term. Bafang 8Fun BBS01-B will be right around 350w, but will pedal assist quite nicely up to 25mph, or more depending on controller.

If Matt does not want to play, Grin ( will assemble a BBS01-B kit. So will Dillenger - Iris will help you through the process.
