Yes I was thinking of bit's of this 'n' that from here 'n' there to save on the cost, I also have a full machine shop here at home to make or modify whatever, but still just the cost of a good motor controller and decent lithium batteries alone is well beyond what any gas conversion kit costs. I'm not planning to use an electric bike or a fuel bike for regular commuting, for me riding a bicycle is something I do just to get away on a Sunday afternoon. Sometimes I ride the city bike trails with my kids and sometimes I pack a lunch and head out to the country on my own with my cameras and it's the country rides where some power assist would be nice I suppose because I've seen those rides turn into 80 kilometer round trips with many hills.
