Well that title is a mouthful, here’s a few snaps of my E-Bike project, the decorative engine is a 1950s Villiers 150cc 2 Stoke Lawn mower engine. What appears to be the transmission is a Bafang electric motor tuned to 680 watt.

Hahaha thanks mate, appreciate the feedback, my need to create just does not stop, I am about to post some companion metal art that goes with this bike theme.

Further to this build, a random dude I met on the street while riding the Ebike commented that it would be cool to make a matching Cigar Box Guitar, I thought 1920s board tracker and depression era musical instrument art was a nice theme. So I got online, learnt about scale, resonators, piezo pickups and made my very first 3 string slide guitar.

And the dude who sent me down this CBG rabbit hole was so impressed with my work he commissioned me to make him a 3 string Base slide CBG with a punisher theme, so I made a skull brand, used 9mm cartridges for chord markers. Used a mini humbucker and fabricated my own dovetail tapered boxes
