Thanks for all the encouragement. Bennelson's bike was one of the first I checked out. Very inspirational. The biggest unique problem I'll have is that the 79-81 cm400s have an incomplete frame. The engine actually bolts directly to the frame and creates the necessary stability. The conversion I linked to above deals with this problem by adding an angle iron strut straight across then a battery cage that also bolts to the frame at the key points to stabilize the bike.

I'm a little concerned about this, but a couple of other folks have done it and don't seem to be having problems.

^Famous last words?^

I also checked out ecorenovator. Cool stuff, projects for the winter when it's too cold to work on the bike!
