Found these two old Giant LaFree ebikes on Facebook Marketplace and couldn’t resist. $30 for two ebikes? Of course they don’t work but Im pretty sure I can figure them out. They look pretty neat and work pretty good as regular bikes. I really like the electric blue/purple color.
Kinda a loaded question, but old Cummins Rams have a price inflation issue. I also want to get the most I can.
1985 Fuji Espree, $50 from craigslist. Should be a fun little commuter, might even try using it for exercise. The Ram is a bit cumbersome in town and everything is within 5 or 6 miles of my place, so a bike seems like a good choice for most days when I go to Walmart to buy more ping pong balls.
1700 miles, from Omaha NE to Bend OR. What a trip.
Last minute change on the solar car, our hall effect pedal wont work, looking for a readily available pedal that uses a potentiometer. Either available locally at a parts store or could get here by monday.
