Parts List
Bike: (UK) (USA)
3D Printed parts:
Electric scooter throttle:
Saddle bag:
6s 5000mah li-po battery
HTD5 12T pulley (with 8mm bore for motor shaft)
HTD5 800x15mm belt
5pcs m4x30mm bolts (clamp motor mount to frame)
4pcs m4x10mm bolts (attach motor to mount)
1pcs m4x50mm bolt (roller bearings seat on this bolt)
5pcs m4 nyloc nuts
3pcs m3x10mm bolts (assembly of electronics case)
5mm wide cable ties (attach pulley to spokes)
EC5 battery connectors
4mm bullet connectors (for ESC)
Basic knowledge of electronics and soldering
and a 3D printer…

Also, the VESC is capable of using the electric scooter ‘analog signal’ and an input, so the arduino isn’t required.

Note: The 3D printed brackets/pulley were designed specifically for the bike used in the video, it will not fit any other bike and I will not be modifying it on request to fit to other bikes.

Disclaimer: I do not hold responsibility for any wrongful riding if you chose to build this ebike. It is beyond the legal limit (250w) for an electric bike, which is why I chose to ride it within the grounds of my university.

  1. what is the 3d printer ur using and how much does it cost

  2. you are a genius

  3. 12:59 should have put the motor on that dudes wheelchair

  4. ok im seeking some help id like to do something similar though i need more power and torqu as my bikes heavier its an american speedster pvc classic side kick for2 people id like 2 put 2 motors on the rear wheels and go about 35 mph

  5. 11:35-11:36 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣

  6. 1:13 so nobody is gonna talk about that dick that’s drawn on the road 😂😂

  7. You should do this project again or upgrade the bike and make it so that when you brake it actually chargers the battery.

    Que explicación más enrredada

  13. tom looks like a child who’d been caught taking 1 more cookie

  14. Love your taste in music for the montage

    Dude I am not fimilar with 3d part for this purpose as I fear it could snap in middle of nowhere…well put some zipties on 4sec of pully…belt tensioner is good….nice idea BLDC of rc car

  16. I am very pleased with my new e-bike.Ш The 500w motor gives me plenty of power. Assembly is simple enough if you are even reasonably mechanically inclined. I have only used my e-bike for relatively short trips so I can ride for a few days before I have to change my battery. I read reviews about the brake handles being on wrong side but mine came right. It’s a good buy for the money, fast, and I love it…..

  17. the larger gear is attached to the wheel via sprockets (zip ties)? Are they holding up well?

  18. Rambling Riders March 10, 2021 @ 10:15 pm

    You should see how many of these you can put on a trike and what top speed you can get it to!

  19. Cool had a go i have the motor spinning on test but i am stuck on the twist throttle calibration it is sensorless your help would be great.

  22. Bunu ben denedim 12 volt 65 amper jel akü ile 20 dakika çok rahat hareket edebiliyor seni

    It’s nice to have a electronic bike

  24. Check out how to build Mini Volkswagen Bike

  25. I like it !!!

  26. Can I buy this as a kit?

  27. CHTech Industries March 10, 2021 @ 10:25 pm

    Make one with switchable gears!

  28. How long do you think the 3d prints will last

  29. you are a genius

  30. also adding solar panels to keep batteries charged but im also looking at some alternative ways to charge without sunlight and the 2nd video im looking into

  31. Got a question about this bike? Check if I’ve already answered it in my Q&A video

  32. dish motor on the back end would be better!, more expensive for a battery to power it but no belts etc and you can buy a pedal assist sensor and controller for less than £40 and get up to 50mph lol

  33. Rambling Riders March 10, 2021 @ 10:36 pm

    I’ve wanted to do something like this for so long!

  34. @ 1: 13 into the video it looks like someone drank to much at the Pub and pissed an outline of Dick and Balls on the sidewalk!

  35. Anyone else from corridor digital

  36. Im a medicine student why am i watching this

  37. Hi tom. How can you connect brake to esc?

  38. Abhinandan Pandey March 10, 2021 @ 10:47 pm

    Wht was the material for pulley?? PLA?


  40. Hello, I would like to know how much you spent to assemble this ebike.

  41. * КАНАЛ ИСКУССТВЕННОГО СВЕРХИНТЕЛЛЕКТА March 10, 2021 @ 10:50 pm

    До первой серьезной горы – эта игрушка студентов. Мощность двигателя и прочность деталей – явно недостаточны.

  42. Savneet Singh rai rai March 10, 2021 @ 10:50 pm

    I hope it broke the 20miles barrier….a adrino reprogramming is what make it complicated..what abt 60amp rc esc with hand held speedcontroler….😜😁😁

  43. Александр Пристенский March 10, 2021 @ 10:51 pm

    great idea! I have an idea to make similar but use car engine’s timing belt (it’s durable in car engine upto 60.000 km).
    but how it’s connected to the wheel’s spokes? can’t believe that with just "5mm wide cable ties" 🙂

  44. Wathching this video in 2020
    And me feeling inside did i just miss it all these years

  45. Ii farted

  46. Outstanding. I’ve been looking for a production kit like this with no luck – all hub motor or friction drives. The final weight must have been far less than "standard" ebike components. Thanks for posting.

  47. e

    Hi! Very interesting project! If you want you can follow back my channel for telling me what do you think about my E-bike project! 😉

  49. Somsak Somprasong March 10, 2021 @ 10:55 pm

    Wow, it’s awesome!

    You are a,stunning example of youth on the right track.
