    A new Aussie Electric Bike fan

    Good evening all.

    First up, I'm Paddy Charlton-O'Shea. The rules said I had to post within a week or I'd be auto ejected (which would kinda suck) so this is my 'getting to know ya' post.

    I've wanted to build an electric bike for quite a while, but since I had a bit of a stack that ruined a Hayabusa and left me unable to swing a spanner for a bit I had had to put it on the back burner.

    My imagination has thrown up a tonne of ideas in the mean time, from an electric 'Busa - which would be awesome but hard to get both range and fun - to an electric assist tilting quad pushbike.

    Now I'm back in the saddle, both figuratively and a new 'Busa, and ready to make sparks fly.

    Welcome Aesonique. Keep us informed as your plans to electrify your Hayabusa jell. The size of that bike should give you lots of options. But it won't be easy.

    Busa is one of my favourite chassis for a conversion - acres of space and a stunning, fully faired, wrapper.

    Shall be watching with interest - welcome aboard!
