Default Re: is it difficult to install a shift kit on a electra cruiser 1

Looks to me like the Electra Cruiser has plenty of room for the sbp shift kit, you'll also need a kit to convert the one piece cranks to a 3 piece setup and you'll most likely have to fabricate a front engine mount once you get everything else in order, if you have a good amount of tools and good mechanic knowledge you should be able to make you a nice shifter bike out of that Electra Cruiser, that is a nice looking frame.

By the way a rear wheel with a Shimano Nexus 3 speed hub is said to be a nice hub for a 3 speed shifter build.

Sturmey Archer is also A well known brand that has always made good stuff, this might be an option also

Best wishes.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
