The new mods since the last picture is the rear light, music speaker and relocated license plate. I also added the storage bin in the water bottle cage.
And of course the glow kit. AKA cheap LED color changing light stand that I mounted upside down beneath the battery tray. The pic here also shows the rear light with integrated virtual bike lane projected by the laser. If you want one, just type in "laser bike light" or something like that in your ebay search. Works better on regular upright bicycles where the laser line is much longer since it's mounted higher up and gets the clearance that's otherwise limited by my tiny little thing of a bike.
LED strips can be bought from ebay too. $3.50 gets you the 9v battery holder and spend no more than that again on the lights. Double stick tape and you're done. More info on my blog in the sig.

i think the hottest its gotten is in the 80's celcius. motor is still really good. i can put maybe 2 -2.5kw through it continuos for a pretty long time.
the only thing i have a problem with now is my chain, its stretching like crazy. i only put maybe a few hundred k's on it so far.
maybe my cheapy chain isnt strong enough. ill def upgrade when it snaps.
