There 2 very good reasons I chose an E-bike over a E-motorcycle.

#1 I don't have to insure or pay registration for my E-bike
#2 I already own a motorcycle that gets 60+ MPG.

Get ready... this is going to be a massive post.

Installing the wheel I noted the retaining wheel washer wouldn't work for my application so one was made from a large washer. The washer bolts to the spline and bolts to the fork.

The rack came in. It was smaller than I thought but it is super light weight!

Installed.... the controller is just sitting on it for now.

A schwinn bike computer was installed on the right side so I can access functions without taking my hand off the grip.

The throttle went on the left side grip so it is accessible all the time.

A sunlight double kickstand was installed. Neat thing is the bike came with an axle kick stand so I can leave both on there

Installed a metroflash Danger zone light on the rear of the rack. A little modding had to be done to get it to mount the way I wanted it.

Got to keep the tire pressures in check so....

Here is a picture of the tires that came with the bike.

Also have a kill a watt to monitor energy consumption during charging.

Other things I've added include a forward light and more comfortable seat. Here it sits now... in my bedroom lol

Battery should be in Wednesday. The battery is a little smaller in size than the 20ah ping battery and will include a 2A charger as well. It also has a BMS built in the pack. I'll get some pictures once I get it in. I have a bag I found that will fit the rack that should be in tomorrow or tuesday.

I weighed the entire bike. Without the battery, helmet or bike lock the bike weighs 53.4lbs
