I've been looking at e bikes for the past couple of years, and when I'm financially better off I'll build my own. Purely because I want one like this........

I did mention "Santa Pod" ebike racing in an earlier post Jon 🤣
My racing and tearing around days have long gone.
Much prefer to amble along now taking in the surroundings and enjoying the experience and freedom.
Good luck with your project though if you go ahead with it👍

Had no chance getting out on ours....had family staying for the past week ........lovely to see them but very busy and fun.
Out again very soon.

There is a speed limitation for the Ebikes Mike.....15MPH max.
Most that are sold in the U.K. are governed to this.
Personally I think that is plenty to be bimbling about with.
Some bikes can be deregulated quite easily.......not for us though :)

I concur. I'm dangerous enough on two feet! The thought is amazing, but the reality is I'd be strawberry jam if I had a bike that fast. 20mph and a long range would suit me nicely

There's a limit on motor and battery size as well. You can register an overpowered bike as a motor vehicle and insure it to use it on the road though.
