    Hello folks,
    Pictured is my 6th attempt at electric motivation. Started with a Micargi Royal Dutch Bike. Replaced the 26 by 4 tires with 26 by 3s. Used the Micargi 3" wheel on the front and a new 4" wheel on back. These changes (lower profile tire and wheel setup) lowered the rear 1". I then shortened the forks by 2"s to level the bike out. Added disk brakes front and rear, changed the seat and handlebars. Adapted a 1300 watt/52 volt electric rear geared hub motor kit and ran the wiring through the frame. Finished it off with a little pin striping. It rides great!

    This was my latest build. I've done 5 electric trikes I will be featuring in the near future. Hope you enjoy.

    I LOVE IT! I'm def going to get bigger tires as well... hitting bumps at 25-27mph isn't to fun lol. And getting the springer fork to work was a big time killer. And i may change my handle bars because the grip has my wrists at a little bit of an angle and hard to squeeze tight at higher speeds.

    I'm thinking of making a trike next to haul all the crap to the beach..

    https://www.bikemania.biz/tririder-fat-tire-fat-trike-disc-brake-4-tires.html or a sun trike fat wheel.

    Your bike is killer! I can't wait till i have time to clean mine up like yours!

    Very nice. These type of paint job, black with white lines, always reminds me of old BMW bikes.

    They are trikes, he posted them here in the "electric powered bikes" section - just browse through the next few threads.
