YouTube channel by the name of HennyButabi reveals an engineer and craftsman that takes you through step-by-step instructions on how to build your own e-bike. Yes, a pair of 20-inch wheels from an AMG is what you, too, can be riding around the hood.
In this video you see me building a DIY electric powered fat bike with car tires at home in my garage. The video contains the full build start to finish. I added chapters below to easily navigate through the video.
I am a Mercedes and AMG fan so the obvious choice was to use AMG wheels.It is powered by 2 hoverboard motors coupled together and 2 48v lithium batteries.
It drives fairly well, however it is very heavy so you have to get used to it to take turns. Brakes are a little underpowered, better solution would be hydraulic disc brakes from a motorcycle./HennyButabi
