Self-built e-bike should be on the reels: 50 km/h and is taken
Car Raised mopeds are no longer the only two-wheelers on their speed to be tested. The police in the Dutch Winterswijk (Gelderland) got a converted mountain bike of the road and put the bike on the rollers. What was the result? The fast-paced, self-built e-bike without pedal assistance reached a speed of 50 km per hour.

“my Colleagues saw the man Thursday, cycling on his mountain bike on the Kottenseweg. He fell on his extremely high speed’, says policeman Willem Saris to our colleagues from The news of the world. “And when she was next to him for a reason, they saw that the man was not even kicked...”

Battery to the frame
The man, who without a helmet on his bike sat, was stopped and his bike was reviewed. This saw the agents that there is a battery on the frame was mounted. The battery hung in a kind of cradle, and was taped to his place. From the battery there was a wire to the handlebars. Saris: “From the steering wheel he could get the bike in motion with a sort of throttle, which is a middenmotortje tire. Then we have the bike seized for technical examination.” the

it is Unclear yet how the ‘vehicle’ exactly classified. Saris speaks for the convenience of an ‘e-bike’, but the technical survey should make clear how the bike must be deemed. “For we know what may and may not do with the bike, we need to know what the legal status is of the vehicle. We expect to be in the study next week have been completed.” the

The owner of the bike is not picked up and have to wait what the outcome of the research is going to be. In any case, until that time, the Winterswijker his bike and is also not yet clear whether he is a fine can expect.
