As a longtime 2 wheel freak (motos, scoots, bikes all good), I have wanted to experiment and build something. This year got the chance, since I was towing a trailer and a portable flamethrower.
Stripped my old rusted playa beach-cruiser, powdercoated the frame, and found a perfect M-Wave trailer to hold the propane tank.
Did a lot of research and put together a 600w brushless motor on the front, controller, and the latest LIFEPO4 batteries. Yes, it was spendy but now have something, like Trilo says, can be used in Defaultia, plus my old knees are thanking me and now I get out and ride much more often. I use the motor as an assist and it works great.
The hub is sealed, I added some Sugru around the axel entry point, sealed the controller wire ports with E6000, and got some Ortlieb saddlebags for the batteries and adult bevs.
Post-playa, just did the usual bike maintenance, and washed the bags. All Good.
