Hi All, in this Thread i will keep you updated while i rebuild my C5. I will start with the Conversion to meet German Pedelec Regulations before i put my Hands on the Frame and Bearings as they are in pretty good Condition. I Germany an original C5 is not Road Legal. It needs a Pedal Assistance Sensor, so the Motor helps you pedalling but can´t run on a Switch. I decided to get rid of all original wiring, Motor and Control Box. Here is what i start with. The Motor i have is a 500W/48V BLDC. Double the Power we are allowed but it Can be configured to act as a 250W Motor in the Controller. Honestly, using a 36V Battery it has 380W. Outlaw Today i got all the electric Parts: and collected a Freewheel adaptor for the New Motor from my, not so, local Customs Office. Unfortunately the C5 is Kind of a Side Project atm, so please don´t expect it to be finished in the near Future. The first Step will be a Motor Mount aka Subframe wich doesn´t hinder me adding an internal Gear Hub in the Future. I will keep you updated.
