Classic lines with a twist.
We’ve just finished converting this luscious silver Pilen Lyx Special to electric.
We’ve used the Lekkie 300 watt mid-drive motor with a thumping 17.4 amp-hour battery, so it will go the distance. It makes for quite a neat and stealthy conversion that doesn’t detract from the classic looks of the bike too much. Keeping the chain guard required a bit of extra trickery and additional fabrication, but we think it was worth it to keep as close to the original look as possible.
We’re looking forward to feedback from the lucky owner once it’s been around the block a few (hundred) times.
