And no need license .....

Next project can be an ebike @Giles  ;)


"In Great Britain, if you’re 14 or over you don’t need a licence to ride electric bikes that meet certain requirements, and they don’t need to be registered, taxed or insured.
Electric bikes meeting the requirements are called ‘electrically assisted pedal cycles’ (EAPCs). They can be 2-wheeled bicycles, tandems or tricycles.

The requirements are:

-the bike must have pedals that can be used to propel it
-the electric motor shouldn’t be able to propel the bike when it’s travelling more than 15mph
-the bike (including its battery but not the rider) must not be heavier than 40 kilograms (kg) if it’s a bicycle, or 60kg if it’s a tandem or tricycle
-the motor shouldn’t have a maximum power output of more than 200 watts if it’s a bicycle and 250 watts if it’s a tandem or tricycle
-the bike must have a plate showing the manufacturer, the nominal voltage of the battery, and the motor’s power output. "

By the way, i own an ebike. BH Ebikes. Fantastic here in Oslo. All the year. Winter like summer! Middle of winter with snow, ice...and special winter wheels, it works amazingly well!

Classy build, and quite an unusual frame with that long head tube! Long legs only clearly

Yep, long legs......It's a very relaxed geometry.  I had it built for a trans-African ride, that next happened.  Life got in the way........

You were more than vaguely heckled  :o :o :o .......The saddle was chosen by the guy who built the bike for me.......And actually I am more than happy to eat my words, I quite like it.......

@Sam saw my bike and told me in no uncertain terms how much better it looked irl, than my photos suggested.

OK, you wise arse, you do better.

So he did.....
