19bonestock88’s commuter bike BUILD: replacing the “Green Line”

So I’ve decided to do something about my cars poor city MPG rating on my 2.2 mi commute... ditch the gasoline altogether! I finally got my old bike home and freed up its chain and most of its cables(it sat at my ex’s place for about a year)and have test ridden it some with tires at 50psi(700x35C)...

I can’t legally ride it to work yet, as at least one of my commutes each work day happens under cover of darkness, and I haven’t got any lights... yet

Plans are to make it work properly again, some small aero improvements, and maybe a hub motor (48V/30A), if I can nail down some legal info on e-bikes here in WV
