You guys have built some gorgeous e-bikes. So much so, that I'm almost embarrassed by posting my cheapo. Here it is anyway . . .
Thanks ind-chuckz, for the Husky frame. Here' what I did with it . . .

Husky frame, motorcycle handlebars,1000W motor, fat Continental tires, taillight in fake (obviously) exhaust and a kickstand in the back for all that weight. It does about 26 mph quietly and I love it.

Very nice, simple e-bike.
I got into e-bikes before I got into ratrods, and with all the crazy contraptions I've seen, I think it all boils down to "the bike you'll ride is the best!"
Didn't somebody more famous say that? Or something similar...
I do like the elegant simplicity and understated style. Well done!

I would try a "bottle" battery in the "tank" space and would also blacken the front hub to match the motor.
Very clean and nice. I like the rear kickstand - it allows for rolling a bike rearwards without the kickstand slamming against the crankarm.
