Shipping: tru - but perhaps we can get creative without making a science project out of it. Lemme think about that one a bit. Have a few ideas. Welcome others.
Also - here are a couple more items I would add to your list to ponder.
- I would go with a QS motor if I was going with a hub motor - and a Kelly controller.
- Two types of controllers - one is sinusoidal - thats the one you want for smoother operation.
- Use one of these types of throttle converters - to allow you to keep the stock throttle using cable. - hide it back by the motor - will give you a clean build. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32954909008.html
Will be fun to watch this one.
