Caliper - Side Pull
This bike goes well and is in good working condition. Not sure of the motor size but it is 24v and has enough watts to go from a standing start uphill without using the pedals. It has a side mounted motor with chain drive and a usual 10 speed derailleur gear system for the pedals. The bike was used over a year for delivery of a local paper in Melbourne. It towed a trailer with a huge load of rolled up papers and I added a basket in front to hold 20 or 30 papers for easy reach while pausing at letterboxes. It was a great solution for distributing and I strongly recommend it for anybody in that business. The trailer got pinched, but the DIY front basket is still attached. The trailer linkage is still on the bike and should suit a kiddie trailer
The bike comes with one battery in a case that drops into a frame at the rear. There is room for a second battery but I used to cover 20km towing a trailer on one battery. An automatic switch cuts power to stop drain when the bike is idle for a few minutes. There are two power choices - direct power when you twist the handgrip, or pedal assist which only comes on when you pedal. As a safety feature the motor cuts out around 23kph. The bike used to have a speedometer but it broke. Replacements are cheap and easy to fut.
The battery is getting tired and needs replacing. I can get one and add it to the price if the buyer prefers. They are not expensive, but if you wanted to lash out and invest in a lithium ion power pack that would be a lot lighter and longer lasting. The charger is included and tops up the power pack overnight. The frame is unmarked but there is slight evidence of oxidation on the handlebar.
I am offering pickup from near Daylesford where buyers can inspect and try
