Folding bikes, ebikes, folding ebikes, etc. were a somewhat popular topic here a while back...

Came up with this one...

$55 to buy... about $200 "all in". Wound up with 2 new sets of batteries, 4 spare headset bearing pairs. New charger included.

36-volts, 350 watts, 20 mph top speed, 22-range. This was reportedly there most popular model. Sold for about $400 before being replaced by 48-volt model.

Seat comes off, handlebars/steering shaft comes off...

Yes. My scooter / project. Tiny wheels, short wheelbase but yes, fun. People seem to like it. Couple shout-outs. One passer-by when parked for break and photo said we wants to get one.

Broke spring-suspension seat moving it (not sitting on it!). Going with plastic-fatigue / someone else's large a$$, not mine... Down to close to 150 I think now... Suspension post and seat I put on folding bike fit and is pictured!

One more mod. to do... need to stabilize and reinforce steering rod. Too much movement when turning... make wheel offset from center. Thinking a through bolt to keep position and pipe to reinforce it will work.
