Yeah the rear rack is less than ideal. I have a new battery on route for this season that I plan to get into the frame so I can loosen the rear shock back up again.
I built the bike in the 90's and electrified it 2 summers back and put some (needed) new forks on it. My sla's are far from holding a full charge but they should be some fun to run 24V in my kids 12V ride-ons they've outgrown, until they're completely dead

Bought another one :)

Has a wobbly rear wheel, 08 model with 2 batteries that work for $250, I fig. if I have to get a new rim and respoke it's still a steal. Bought sight unseen, paypalled and beat over 20 people to the deal


Picked this one up for my kids (but I ride it ) and it was a steal for $120 too
I even got the matching helmet and battery holds enough charge to just get to work. Runs really strong with my 8 and 9 year old on it, 24V so hills really effect it and no pedals to help


Good cheap fun, I wish I could say that for the one above, I've had some probs and hope to have it running perfect this weekend, not touching the blue one yet.

Seriously, I would like to have a bike EXACTLY like the one you got your father. I like the battery in the rack, the basket... I looked at Estelle bikes and couldn't find one just like this one. They all have the "saddlebag" style battery. Any info on this bike would be much appreciated. Thanks, Angie

Angie,

Allen may be able to point you to the best source for a bike like his father's. There is an online retailer that builds custom e-bikes, including an electrified 3-spd Biria EZBoard--https://www.oldesaltbikes.com/osbshop...=6&idproduct=3. They use the Wilderness Engergy kit with a 36V 600W hub motor, which may not be the best choice--it also only comes with a SLA battery pack, which you'd need to replace. The warranty for the electric hub system also isn't that long. However, maybe they'd be willing to customize an 8-speed Biria with a different hub motor system, if you can't find someone close to you who can customize a bike for you. Good luck.

New guy here on the forum, this is my second post. My first was about charging the batteries.

I just built my first E bike effort. It's an EZ-Glide conversion kit built on a Wally World coaster bike. It seems to work just fine for my purposes.

The coaster brakes were semi useless so I retrofitted a set of caliper brakes to the included hand levers. Big improvement!

Since I'm chronically underemployed, I have time to play with different ideas for practical electric bikes.

This is my latest....kind of a cargo bike. It's had over 200lbs on the back rack, and was still very stable riding.

I'm running a 48 volt, 11 amp hour pack made out of DeWalt A123 LiFePo4 batteries, and a chrystalite 5403 hub. In the last few days, I've put on almost 80 miles, with the longest run at 10 miles before charging. As near as I can estimate, it looks like I can expect a possible 20 mile range on the pack. The handling is quick and light, and the ride, with it's front and rear suspension, is superb....even sitting in the very ergonomic hard plastic ABS racing seat.

I just finished making this:



It uses NiMH batteries from a junked Ford Escape hybrid, so that's one less SUV on the roads :-)

Both the bike and the trailer fold and will fit easily in the trunk of a car or can be packed for air travel. They are my ninja public transport machines and are bus and train friendly. :-)

I've been riding the Hebb Electro Glide 500. Real clean ride. I'm loving some of these custom bike kits that I'm seeing on these forums though! Gotta get my hands on a trike to try out at some point.
