Step 1: Frame
The first thing to decide when making an e-bike is which frame to use. When choosing a frame, keep in mind that the size, material, and rim options. If you are going to weld mounts to it, look for frame that are steel and not aluminum. Also keep in mind that usually only 20in BMX rims and road bike rims have threads on both sides to mount an additional sprocket to. I chose a BMX frame because it it's steel, has rims I can mount to, is light weight, and compact so it can fit into a car.
