I converted my 10+ year old bike to an e-bike, having made the 2-pack 41V battery myself from recycled lithium-Ion batteries, with the help of Substation33 at Kingston Qld, Australia. I ordered the motor from China and bought front and back racks.

Additional FeaturesI decided to get a front and back rack and put milk crates on them, to double as a concealed battery compartment and semi dry carry space. I changed this to side bags at the back, as the weight was too high.
