Thanks.

I used https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XKFMPRR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The front pad was pretty easy I just cut plywood the size of the rear seat(little smaller) drilled 3 holes and used 1/4-20 carriage bolts for mounting.  Make the holes fit tight on bolts so they don't spin.  I used the packing foam that came with the bike cut to size.  and just wrapped it with some Pleather from walmart and staple it to bottom of the plywood.  super easy really.

Looks great! Do you have a link to the one you bought? I'd like to add it to the accessories list I have since the one I had on there is no longer available. The DIY pad looks much better than the one you can buy from Rad Power Bikes. Was it difficult to make?

Sure you can built ebikes like these, that cost next to nothing. But I would never want to ride one myself... These cheap bicycles just can't be safe - front fork, frame, wheels etc. If they crack on speed, well good luck! And add the extra stress that electric motor causes to the components that were not originally designed for ebike use, you will only get more problems.

Right.  And I have a very similar bike.  I would say that Raleigh is a slight step up from a mongoose.  but still its not at the level of rad bike.  and all of them will require repairs and will wear faster than a high end bike. 

My point was just that if he rides that walgoose for a year and has zero problems he isn't telling the truth.

 The bottom bracket on the Mongoose I built is already junk.  I have about 70 miles on it.  The disk brakes on it are total garbage. the derailleurs are pretty bad.  I had to switch out handlebars and stem to a 1 1/8" adapter because the quill stem it had was so flexy it was scary..

With that said I rode to work yesterday and home 20 miles round trip. The bike made it I didn't die and it was a cheap build.  But I would not in anyway say that the bike felt better while riding the my radwagon.  It is faster but thats about it.

I'm curious what the most popular Rad Power Bikes model is. I've allowed a max of two votes per user so those with multiple can mark them. Once you vote you can see the results. I have my guess of which Rad is the most popular but we'll see if I'm right! Feel free to share why you chose the specific model below and if you'd change your mind after owning it.
