What type of electric drive would you suggest for this?
#1
for my next bike project i am trying to find a rebike frame and fit it with an electric drive system. my budget is 500 dollars and i have a feeling i am going to be building the frame and other components and saving a bulk of the money for the electric drive. now i dont have much experience with electric kits.
so i was wondering if anyone out there had some helpful suggestions on what type of drive i should use. to give you an idea of the frame setup im working with here is a picture. any help is very useful, ill be starting from the ground up on this one

On of my trikes has a Bfang motor rated at 750 watts. IMO that is all you need. That wattage also conforms with some local laws about electric bikes or trikes.
