    I just put together what I think might be the cheapest ebike with a hub motor around right now. Bike from Walmart $112, Golden Motor front hub kit for $339, 3 - 11ah sla batteries off the bay for $83 delivered and about $15 for misc. stuff. A friend gave me the rear rack. I suppose I should add in the $25 for the second charger as it seems I did the obligatory "let the smoke out" while checking polarity.:cry:

    Anyway, for around about $550 I got a bike that will go 20 mph for 10+ miles without pedaling. It might not be the top of the line, but it sure puts a smile on my face when I'm riding it. I should have done this years ago.:grin::grin::grin:
