bike. Frame is a very modified early 80's Diamondback BMX with the rear end chopped and replaced with a mountain bike rear swing arm and shock. Front forks are Girvin Noleens in aluminium with 3" of travel. The battery/electronics box was custom fabricated into the frame and is covered by chopped and modified modified jerry-can. Have just ordered a 1Kw motor and controller to improve performance. Wheels may increase in size from 20" to fat 24's when new motor is fitted.
