    Has anyone made a bike with a 70cc engine and an electric front hub?

    yup, did a trike that way a few years ago
    used the hub for launch, then engaged the 32 tooth when going fast enough
    was a fast bike, but too complicated for it's owner so we pulled the 70 and she still uses it as electic only

    the details are on another site that I don't like to send people to
    I will send the link in pm if you still want it
    it was built by my son-in-law (azvinnie) and myself for his mom :)

    ps...with 4 batts and front hub, it weighs a lot so shipping would be crazy$$$, if she even wanted to sell

    That is a 1000W Phoenix hub and I believe he said he gets about 20-25miles on just electric power. The bike weighs a ton! But I had the chance to ride it and man just with the hub that thing would get up and go.

    A customer of mine had me complete one for him; It's a mountain bike with a 4-stroke & a electric front hub with the batteries on a rear rack.
    It's the heaviest, most awkward thing I have ever ridden! He also removed the pedals for some reason... :rolleyes:

    I'll take a pic of it the next time I do a oil change for him.
