I bought this bike off a crusty Marine in Monterey, California in 2013 for $89 on craigslist. Using an Xtracycle Free Radical, it was converted into a cargo bike so I could carry the kids around. I installed a LEED 250 Series Electric Bike Conversion Kit. The battery is carried on the frame in a Revelate Designs frame bag. This protects the battery from bumpy rides and keeps it dry in bad weather. This bike has become my go-to commuter that I ride in the Washington D.C. area to and from work. It can carry all my gear as well as the kids and it is a fast ride. It’s fun to pass morning and evening commuters. They have no idea it is an electric bike!
