Conversion Timeto much, it is really hard to find electric vehicle parts here in Argentina :(

It was a challenge project. Can I build one EV? The answer is yes. The result is not really what I expected but it was a good experience.
If you gonna built e-bike, I can give you some suggestions.
- use a brushless motor.
- at least you should have 9:1 ratio to get reasonable aceleration.
- and good battery pack ofcourse
