The following video is an overview of the NEW 2013 MODEL from

The Electric Bike Conversion Kit System that Jason is describing above is truly a Plug & Play System. They come with your choice of the Tried & True SLA (lead cell) Batteries or the 21st Century Extremely Light Weight, Long Lasting & more Powerful Li-ion Batteries from Allcell Technologies in Chicago, IL.  If you prefer, you also have the option to order the E-BikeKits without the batteries.  These are the same kits, same components but you supply the batteries.  I use E-bikeKits exclusively in all of my custom conversions & this is the option I choose most often. Yes, It does requires a little more effort on your end but it also provides you with an overall  greater flexibility in the final outcome of your project. E-BikeKit Conversion Kits without the battery might also save you some money especially if you’re considering the SLA Battery Pack. SLA Batteries can often be purchased locally at a Battery Discount Store or an Auto Parts Store saving you money on both the purchase price & the shipping cost. Of course you have to wire the batteries together. All in all an easy job. See wiring diagram below.

Batteries make sparks. Always wear safety glasses & make sure your work area is free of combustibles.
