    Electric bike 500watt - faulty battery | eBay


    Excellent design features on this home built machine.

    Of particular note:

    1. Use of a phono plug for battery charging.
    2. Fork installation.

    Currently going for £5.19, - cheaper than a bottle of whiskey and 100 sleeping tablets!

    The first thing I noticed, perhaps he likes really fast steering, or more likely hadn't realised they're the wrong way round :eek:

    More than a few have done that when unpacking a new bike - must make for an interesting ride, though.

    Nothing wrong with a phono plug on the charger - provided it's not been wired by the same bloke wot did those forks :rolleyes:

    Hi The only problem with our old kits is they never die one of our old kits fitted one a customers bike that needed new lead acid battery just sold for £ 380 we have been selling kits for 6 years now

    That old bike is only running on 36 volts but will still do 25mph and climb hills like a goat

    You cold just fit 3 new battery's at £28 each in the panier bags link for the best battery's below

    Perhaps the rider has a hankering for riding something that steers like an unstable fighter plane.

    ....I'm sure your kits are great Frank, no reflection on that. The fact the forks are the wrong way around is the bit that scares me!

    I have now messaged the seller to ask him to warm prospective purchasers before someone gets hurt.

    I hope you reminded him to take the wheel out, turn the forks, then put the wheel back in....

    If he just turns the whole shebang round someone's going to have one helluva surprise when the motor kicks in :(
