Electric fat bike for sale


BaldPlumber

Recommended Posts

Due to an urgent need of a tooth implant, I sadly need to sell my almost new electric fat / sand bike.

The bike is fitted with a 48V, 20ah triangle battery powering a direct drive rear hub motor via a 45 amp controller.

 

 

There are 4 modes of operation; pedal assist (5 levels of assist), throttle control, cruise control and walking assist.

 

 

The bike has a top speed of an insane 72kmh, but I have restricted this to 50kmh via the customisable controller.

 

 

Since it is electric, there is no need for tax, insurance or helmets. Since it is a bicycle, there is no hassle from the police.

 

 

I find in normal day to day use, I need to charge it every 5 days or so. Maximum distance is between 80 - 100km depending on power use, terrain and riders weight. The bike comes with a fast, 5 amp charger.

 

 

The original brakes were, in my opinion, dangerous for a bike of this type, so I replaced them with new shimano hydraulic brakes and rotors.

 

 

Similarly, I didn't like the original 21 speed system, so replaced it with a useful 7 speed system by fitting a 52 tooth chain ring. This gives a much higher touring speed.

 

 

I also fitted LED lights, front and rear. These are comparable to motorcycle lights and are very bright.

 

 

Price is 42,500 which is extremely low for a bike of this spec.

You buy the bits, motor, battery, controls etc from China.

 

Then you find a bike and put it all together, or, find a friendly bike shop and get them to do it for you.

 

This one went like a rocket.

First Im happy you got it sold so quick and good luck with your dental issue.

 

The point of this post though is do you realise that you have a business opportunity here ?

 

Make them and sell them also you could rent them out.

 

Just a suggestion you may wish to consider.

Easier to just get a Honda Click isn't it

But way to boring mate. Electric is easy to drag in and charge up. Zero petrol and oil leaks. Lack of regulation is a plus and a distance it can travel covers 99.9% of my needs.   I'm betting there is a market here and well worth looking into.

I'd go along with that too.

 

If I was in the west, I'd be looking at electric cars as well. Along with the Tesla cars, the GM bolt is pretty impressive. I'd be surprised if the major car manufacturers don't have future plans for fully electric cars.

 

All it needs is a better density/power ratio wrt batteries and the market would be enormous.

 

One moving part? No brainer really

Electric scooter or car yeah great idea, charge up and go, but batteries seem like the issue and expensive, leaf was £20k+. But fat tyres bicycles are for sand, limited use. Too tiring to cycle decent distances. I'm out.

1. No license needed.

2. Faster than a Tmax to 60km/h

3. With a solar charger and an inverter 100% independent

4. Works just fine even when "fuel" is empty

5. No noise pollution

6. Environmentally friendly

7. Freedom to drive where a click can't

sorry to counter with the following points !

 

no insurance cover possible . 

upgraded breaking system still not adequate .

speed capabilities still too high  for the bike structure in event of collision .

chinese battery and electronics can be unreliable , can fail prematurely and can be expensive to replace . ( new battery approx 4/500 yoyos )

 

that said , great looking bike ! i would buy if i lived there for the fun aspect . 

best of luck !

http://ninja-bikes.com/  Can it be this company?  Good luck, they do not seem very responsive.    Just my opinion.

Assuming a new bike used, how much did it cost all up?

If you really want a decent ebike, then research bafang mid drive motors, specifically the BBSHD drive.

 

A motor kit and decent battery will set you back about 50K baht, and then you'll need a donor bike.

 

I've seen second hand bicycles advertised in Thailand for 120K plus, the minimum you'll get away with, assuming you want something half decent, is about 25K and this should be something that won't rust to pieces within a year and will have reasonable brakes and gears.

 

Including the inevitable mods, you'll be looking at 80K which will get you a really good ebike that will knock the spots of anything pre built that you'll see in the shops.

 

A fat bike, although it looks pretty cool, is not necessarily the best one to go for.

 

They're expensive, without a doubt, but for sheer fun they're hard to beat. But, many people will think that a new PCX is better value.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
