Bike was originally a Nashbar 7000 Series aluminum road bike. Suntour shifters and derailleurs. Suntour Cyclone crank (only 1.57lbs). It was a gift from a coworker in 2006. Only needed a new wheel.
Conversion completed June 10, 2015. As a fully converted eBike, it still only weighs 44/45 lbs. That is with beefier front forks for the motor and a steel mountain bike handlebar (shortened)... also with a handlebar bag, lights, and a tool kit under the seat.
