Want to stick a motor onto your bicycle? Well check out this project.

“The current version is what I am calling v1.5, which is the same bike as v1.4 but with some basic changes: a new timing belt drive system with a chain final drive. Basically, the motor drives a belt that spins a secondary shaft or ‘jackshaft’ mounted close on the motor and spinning on ball bearings. This shaft then drives a chain going down to the rear bike wheel. Same motor, and all other components.”
