    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.

    I really like it. Simple minimalist look to it. How do you like the one lever operating both brakes? Any problem, is it hard to ajust correctly?

    Love the tail light in the exhaust. You should get a patent on that feature.
