Non E-Biker of the day : This Clockwork Orange weighs 80 lbs + 2 kids in there brings the load to over120 lbs. It could surely benefit from a motor but I guess what does not kill you makes you stronger.

Ebike of the day is interesting; The owner started with a cheap frame and upgraded with parts from Ebay. It has a delimited 750 watt mid engine with a 14 Ah battery.Full suspension and more. He has addded a 180 mm front fork , a rear shock, plus a seatpost suspension. It also has 203 mm Shimano brakes and an electric horn that sounds like a foghorn to scare off bears on Burnaby Mtn. Upgraded wheels and tires too. This thing flies , I had to go full out to keep up. Oh yeah and look at the rear cluster. It should be able to climb just about anything.

I saw one not long ago in the street where I live. The hood ornament does not immediately reveal the manufacturer, I had to go close to find out what make it was.

The recognition kudos are yours. And thanks for not blurting out its identity. (We need Steve to ponder for a while.)

I had no idea what it was; a leftover from the 1950s or 1960s? No.

This is a 1991 car from a well-known manufacturer (the WW1 barracks clue) who made 20,000 copies (right-hand drive only; another clue!) as an hommage to the classic small cars from Citroën, Fiat, Mini and Nash. What a romantic idea!

I have that same motor, the TSDZ2, on my mtb and although the overall quality of the system is not on par with the big players it does tick all the boxes. Torque sensing that works well and plenty of power to be able to cruise over 20 somewhat without the annoying cut-off. For less that a grand you can put a system together with a 12ah 21700 battery if you shop hard enough. I'll bet the chainline to that big cog is horrible though.

The thing that stuck out, literally, to me was this:

42432

I hope the guy never goes over the bars.....

That is the car I would buy if I won the lottery. So cool, so stylish.
A 1966 Citroen ID19 (regular fixed roof) was one of the cars I learned to drive in. It was my father’s third Citroen. His first was a B11 he bought and took delivery of just after WW2.
I’ve always thought of the Citroen convertible as one of the coolest cars ever.
