Saw a Sachs 301 motorized wheel for sale on my local Craigslist and made the deal for $100 Canadian.
I also happen to have a bicycle frame laying around. After mounting the wheel on and cleaning the carb, it ran pretty well.
Made a "stealth" gas tank from a breathalyzer calibration canister, looks like a big water bottle.
I used a bar end horn to mount a rotary shifter as the right side of the handlebar is the twist grip.
The motor is really quiet and barely smokes due to the 75:1 mix.
Power is .7hp and speed on motor is toped out at 17 kmh due to the cdi speed limit, I may make a cdi with no rev limit.
Power feels like 250 watt electric bike, great for assisting up hills.
