Hi Kevin, Good choice, worth sticking out for..I've had a Moscow (regular) 29" for about 2 years...just coming up to 10000 km. No issues other that wear and tear - chains, gear cables and a new cassette.
If/when you obtain you may be interested in improving its performance. Look at my postings on this site and contact me by pm. You don't need to spend Euro 99 plus p&p to buy on eBay
Hi Steve, Did David tell you how to derestrict your Wisper 905se? I have one and am considering the same. did it work well for you?
Hi, I have recently rescued an old Raleigh with a panasonic motor from a friends back garden. My question is, do you know where I can source/borrow a replacement handle bar controler from as the existing one is faulty? Hopefully I can then fix the switching problem & see if the motor still works. If it does I think it will be worth restoring; if not I will strip it for parts.
Thanks in advance
I'm afraid I don't Roger. Panasonic never made any spares available for their motors, other than the two sprockets.
Okay thanks, I will keep looking. I also really enjoyed reading yourPanasonic website - very interesting & informative.

My partner has a pendleton somerby, which she has not used for six months and unfortunately the battery will not charge. The charger had shown a green light but no charge had been going in. However I have opened the battery and effected a fairly simple fix.

By the way, someone here worked out recently that riding a high priced e-bike can actually cost more per Kilometer to
run than a small car, when viewed over a few years, sad but true!!!
And most people have both!
Have a great day.

Its also your choice as to whether you heed the infos, but if you have 2000 UK ponds to spend, may I suggest two
identical hub bikes, which will give you a full set of spares, including a second battery!
If you need any further infos, I will do my best for you.
Part 5.
Repairing such bikes, if and when, is really simple for any reasonable DIYer, or any LBS.
Please be so kind as to keep this info to yourself, as the "Bosch Bullies" here can get very rude when you tell them
that their "baby" has problems.
Part 5.
One new chain and many brake pads.....It cost new withe 2 batteries, delivery and import duties, including all
the extras except the GPS (I have one!), just over 900 UK Pounds.
For generic Chinese (all e-bikes are Chinese, but some try and hide that!) bikes, all parts are available online, and do not have to come from the manufacturer!!! Almost anyone can sell compatible parts.
Part 4.
If the chain breaks on a hub bike, the motor can still drive and be activated by either PAS system (air pedaling), or
the throttle if you have one, and provided there is some battery capacity still, you simply ride home!
Plus complete hub bikes can be had for less than 1000 UK Pounds, including a second battery. I ride one of them since
Part 3.
If the chain breaks, you have to walk home unless you have a spare chain, the tools needed and lighting at night. Plus that you know how to repair it.
On hub bikes, the only stress is muscle that power goes through the chain, assuming that you are pedaling, otherwise no stress is applied to the chain. The chain wears even slower than a normal pedal bike chain does.
Part 2.
A spare repaired Bosch motor, without fitting, and not being new either, costs around 800 UK Pounds, and has been known to fail on the first rude occasionally....
Also, mid motor bikes have a single point of failure as all power, muscle and motor, go through the same drive chain and sprockets, so they all wear faster, and need to be replaced far more often than a hub bike.
