I inspect the bike daily after ridding But I may install one of those brackets on the fork to supplement them

Take a look at Grin's (ebikesca); It's expensive but the best I've seen. Maybe not a good place to economize. Purchased at Amazon.

Newly acquired RAD Mission, I'm experimenting with seats, the stock one was pretty good, trying a thick cruiser seat (it's very plush). Very simple operating machine, handles well, ride is pretty good ,and very efficient with battery usage. It's also manageable, it's pretty light for an e-bike and I can lift it in the mini van easily.

Will need to cut the fork steertube and maybe fit a different stem.

1 KW should be quite strong-- I have a mid drive with only 350 watts but it has quite a bit of torque. I put a 1000 watt front hub motor on a bike for a friend and then test rode it before handing it over. I thought it was too much for the old Trek 830 it was on. Yours looks like it was built for the motor.

1985 Mt Fuji. Frame needed paint, so I masked the decals, prepped and shot it. Assembled with BBS02 and 52V, 4 ah battery (not shown). Shakedown of the 41 pound bike was uneventful, but it pedals well and is pretty fast even at level 1 (of five). May also ride with a 52V, 14 ah battery which is attached magnetically to the water bottle mounts.

Nice clean setup! It should be fast-- that Fuji should be pretty efficient without a motor. How fast?

Thank you. I should have said for an old man. Right now 42/14 gearing and at 100 rpm, 25 mph. I've had a similar bike with a 52 tooth chainring to 30, and may alter this one with a larger ring too.

75 mile round trip to nicasio reservoir from SF yesterday. 3,500 feet or so climbing, used 32% of the battery even with bonking pretty hard on the way back.
