I was thinking of buying an Electric Scooter to use since my conventional motorbike has blown it's engine and leaked oil all over my back garden.
I live in the UK and I haven't found any off the shelf conversion kits, but wondered if I could use the parts from an electric scooter and convert my bike into an electric bike?
I don't think anyone has tried this, at least that I could find via Google and while it may seem an unusual route to take (as opposed to parts of the shelf) the cost of 2nd hand electric scooters is cheaper than the cost of the parts.
I can think of many of the problems I'd face but I'd like it if someone who HAS built an EV can break down any major problems I would face in doing this.
Ideally I'd much rather have the parts and convert from their but I'm weighing up which route would be better at this moment in time.
