What setup for this antique frame?

Post by CDHE » Sep 01 2018 11:18am

Hi All,

I am looking for feedback on electrifying an antique moped. My current concept is to hang a Cyclone motor to a plate that bolts into the three existing motor mounts (shown in pic). Hoping for a heavily patinated outcome where the new parts don't stand out as modern tech. Was thinking I would swap out the cranks for a two chainring freewheeling set. That said, I am open to alternative ideas. Any help/comments (especially those with specific product recommendations, or contact info for fab people) would be greatly appreciated.

Could you post some more pictures, preferably ones that aren't upside down?
