I have 3 silverback scoop fatties . These have been kitted out with the bbshd 1000 Watt mid drive 52volt 14 amp. These bikes were built to gain access to 12km of previously inaccessible beach at my local.
These bikes are tough and the terrain they conquer is incredible. No problem riding through soft high tide sand. Riding mostly on the beach in the harshest elements these require regular maintenance but the rewards far outweigh the work involved.
Thanks luna mate you have changed my life and opened up my playground.

Matt from Canberra
Had to fight the hordes of people lining up for early morning toilet paper to get this bike from Aldi, used a brake hone to slightly widen the bottom bracket, and had to file down the water bottle mounting bracket screws down to fit the battery onto the receiver. Things went pretty smoothly after that - A pretty fun building process in the end.
Upgraded with a suspension seatpost and schwalbe marathon mtb 29er tyres
Shaun from Perth Northern Suburbs
Shaun had no issues with the instalation, motor or battery. XT 10 speed, Lunamate ebike chain with high tensile pins with no issues. 52t Lekkie chainring
Aftermarket XT rims with rear re built with DT Swiss Chsmpion spokes. Tyres Schwalbe Marathon Plus mtb 27.5
Suspension sestpost. Adjustable handle bar stem. Mudguards and paniers are waterproof Tioga
Bike built for commute to work 53km round trip. XT wheelset was more of a budget selection as they were mid range in price and next wheelset would be DT Swiss. Tyres selected for puncture protection, rode over 5000km with zero punctures and they roll pretty good for a mtb tyre--
Shane from Queensland, an example of a well thought out build on an old quality dual suspension ebike.
"Giant Trance X2 2008, BBSHD 68mm with 52V 14aH battery. One spacer and a bit of dremel work was required to get it installed, otherwise it went i well.without any problems".
Shane from Girrawheen Perth with this new Giant, BBSHD and 52 volt 13ah battery.
Michael with his Norco Bigfoot 2, BBSHD 120mm kit and 52 volt 14ah battery. The bikes Bottom Bracket is 100mms but with the 5 inch tires for the motor to clear the chainstay the 120mm unit was required.
David from Wellington with his Giant Talon 2, (tubless setup) with the BBSHD, red Lekkie 42 tooth and 52 volt 17.5ah triangle battery. Awesome bike to convert.
Glen from Auckland with his BBSHD installed on his bike.
