Open Source Electric Bike and Car
~ designs in-process ~
My wife and I recently sold everything and are traveling the U.S. in an RV with our three dogs and a cat. I have a mini-fabrication shop set up in the RV with a 3D printer, desktop CNC and electronics.
The e-bike project, called EZ-MTB, or maybe EZ-EB or EZ-EBike, is using a moped-type chassis with a mid-drive system.
I already decided on a ready made front end and purchased the Heidt's Hotrod Mustang II front end kit. It costs about $1300 and includes brakes, steering and suspension. The first step for me is to put all the parts in CAD and print 1/4 scale parts with the 3D printer.
