In this video you see me building a DIY electric bike. I wanted to make one as cheap and easy as possible. I do some welding but if you don’t own a welder you could probably bolt something similar together with basic tools.
The total cost of this ebike conversion was only 64,29 EUR / 72,78 USD. Motor and battery are from a second hand broken hoverboard (can be sourced through local second hand sites).
The controller and frame bag I bought on Aliexpress (links are below). The bicycle was already in my possession.The range (without pedalling) on that small hoverboard battery is approximately 5km (3,11 miles).
That is not a lot but can be easily increased by pedalling and/or adding more batteries.The maximum speed without pedalling is 27km/h (16,8mph). It actually drives very well and I am happy with the result.Battery: 36v 4.4ah.Motor: 36v 350w brushless./HennyButabi
