The bicycle i converted a year ago is for sale, i am selling it for a the current owner for funds to build a high end dual suspension bike to make the Stealth bomber look anemic.

Starting at $6500, thats the lowest i will sell it for. If a Aeva member buys it and pms me I will do a discount keeping it at $6500 unless it goes over $7000 then it will just be a flat $500 discount.

"there is no state in AU that that bike is usable on other than private property?"

If you want to get technical about the AU power limits on e bikes. I would go out on a limb and say every ebike even the ones sold as legal are over the 200w (peddle free) and 250w (peddle assist) limit.

Until there is certification and testing of e bikes then your just taking the word of the seller and no one is dyno testing them. Just .001 watt over is breaking the law. So it's the same crime if your .001w or 100,000w over.

I think a max speed befor assistance cuts out is much more sensible than a power limit. Accelerate as fast you like up to 40 - 50kph then it's all your legs. Thats how I have build by ebikes. Get up any hill great acceleration . Even though its 10 - 20X the limit but not fast so you don't attract attention.

Speed is what the cops are looking for.

i fully agree

i am a fatass and 200W wouldnt even move my foot

if it was any power you want up to the speed of <insert speed here> i would build a EV bike as fast as i can
i just see no point in building one for 200W

I agree. Just had my 9 year old niece & nephew on my 800W "chopper" without incident. Luckily the government has a 200W limit for adults.
A brief check of Strava shows that the top 10 riders averaged over 55km/h for a 2km segment near me.
Thank God the government doesn't want electric assistance over 25km/h.

Well the next bike is more aimed at off road. As said in the Ebay add it is certainly illegal but as others has said its easy to get away with it if you are not been a idiot and going full speed on a bike path or riding with a lost licence, no lights and no helmet :)

The next bike would be similar to stealth but it would go on a diet and the electronics side would be put on steroids.

But then all this is why i built a motorbike, and still looking to build more for others at cost price. :)
