Jim Black's Electric EZ1

Jim Black showed the new EZ1 DSX that lives inside his streetliner shell. It has an intermediate electric drive with two freewheels and sprockets on one body (so you can run pedal power, electric power, or both), a very slick installation for any bike with a suitable chainline and mounting structure. He got it with a 3 x 8 Dual Drive rear hub so the motor can drive through 24 wide range gears, so he hopes to remove the extra chainrings and front shifter and go to a smaller tensioning mechanism (or none at all?) to replace the big modified rear derailleur it has now.
