A guy I know calls his bike Deathbike

(1/1)

Patrick:
This is a guy on the e-bike forum. He works for zero motorcycles, and at one point decided to use an electric motorcycle motor on a bicycle. Then he upped the amps a fair amount. Love the warning just before he goes "And you know the bike is dangerous"...:

Moneypenny:
I'm confused... there is a forum for e-bikes?

Mr_Dividend:

Patrick:
That is top quality equipment, if I hadn't already built my big bicycle I'd have jumped on that. A little light on batteries though, I have more watt hours on my bicycle. If I was him I would double the battery capacity at least.

Sadly he's not going to get much money back, there's no market for it in SA. Either he'll have to take a big loss, or ship it to the states/europe.
