Old School eBike Motors

Old school ebike motor.

35 years ago there weren’t any ebike motors. You can see in this picture how big, bulky and heavy the motor on the Solar Tandem was. At the time this was a state of the art electric motor. The motor was easily over 20 pounds in weight putting out around 400 watts of power. Today you can get a sophisticated ebike motor that weighs under 10 pounds and puts out around 8000 watts. What incredible improvements have been made!
