Well, after much procrastination , I finally got around to posting my build. If you'll recall, I was starting out with an old 1985 CCM 6-speed mountain bike which had been sitting in a shed for about 15 years. So, without further ado, here she is:
It's a rear 9C kit powered by a 48V Lithium-Polymer pack carried on the rear rack. I could have mounted a large pack within the frame triangle, but since I have to carry the bike up and down a 4 step stoop, I needed the pack to be removable so I would be able to lift the bike. After replacing the tires, adding a new chain, brake pads (I also checked the brake levers with a magnet and it turns out they ARE metal, coated in black plastic) and hubs (the bearings were shot), I replaced the old aluminum rack with a stronger steel one and added fenders. The performance is amazing! Very torquey, and I've had the bike up to 43 Km/h. I ordered the kit through Ypedal from Ebikes.ca. He also helped me with the installation and setup. He even built my battery pack for me.
Thanks Ypedal...couldn't have done it without you, man!
