Been thinking as I really like vintage everything really.
Taking a 1920s or 1930s 28" wheel Elgin bike and turning it into a mid drive bafang Ebike. Battery can be hide in the false tank. Can even add a 7 speed internal rear hub.
Definitely use disc brake wheels. Might look trippy with the original truss forks but I'm betting it'll work with a little fabbing.

So yeah taking real oldy Goldy and kicking it up with current Ebike craze 🤔

Thoughts?

That's a cool one too.
I got alot of catching up to do.

So even if an EMT shut the electric grid down well there is solar to recharge the battery with still.

With fuel costs at the highest Ive ever seen in life it's pedal power time .

What if an ATC pulls the plug?

I think you may have meant EMP/Electro-Magnetic Pulse.
