Re: First build, random questions about hub motors and overall build

Thank you for the reply! I'll look at the motor you recommend, and measure the spacing on the moped more precisely - eyeballing it with a ruler, the rear looks like maybe 175mm and the front is maybe 120? I think the back is so large because of that drum brake. My 'use case' is checking the fencelin...

First build, random questions about hub motors and overall build

I finally managed to get a cheap donor moped; it is this type but the engine was blown and partly disassembled, which is why I got it super cheap :) I'm not trying to save the pedals, my desire is to run this on throttle (e)power only. https://www.ssrmotorsports.com/store/moped/lazer5/360/29.jpg * I...

Hub motor kits specifically for mopeds?

Hi all- Still completely new to this, trying to find the best options for my needs. I was looking at fat tire bikes, but am now leaning back toward a moped conversion. I can get a used moped in my area for anywhere from $150-250 as my starting point. I think the mopeds I'm looking at generally have ...

MotoTec fat tire bike - can I switch the front and rear wheels?

Hi all- Still looking for my perfect project. I might have an opportunity to get a used MotoTec fat tire bike, one of my concerns is ground clearance/bottoming out, because this will be for farm use (and part of the value of a moped is being able to go over small branches, etc.) so maybe if I go thi...

What is the easiest old-style moped to convert?

This past week, I was hoping to get an old EVG 24v, but the seller sold it before I was able to get it. So, I'm back to square 1, looking for a cheap old-style moped for a conversion. I've seen multiple folks comment on their build requiring custom forks, so I figured I'd be safer to ask in advance ...

Two questions on EVG 24v

Hi all - I'm in Georgia, USA about an hour North of Atlanta. I have a farm, with rolling hills (that's one step steeper than "gently rolling") I have a farm, and am interested in getting an e-bike for two reasons; (1) to easily check the fenceline without having to mess with a larger vehicle through...
