This may interest some one, who wants their electric hubs converted to manual,
I had an enquire about Hub Conversions from Namibia, We decided that the freight cost of sending the complete end caps @ 1.4kg, is the killer of doing these conversions for guys that live overseas.
So I put together an instruction sheet ( emailed ) with Photo’s of how to dismantle the Hub bodies and End caps right down to the two alloy end castings which is the only part I need to jig up and press in a grease seal, Weighing only .350kg, this keeps the freight cost to the bare minimum.



I then modified and returned them with the rest of the parts ( courier post ) which weighed .640kg.
If this is of interest , PM or email me, Thanks.
I have put a Video Clip on youtube for the timing of the end caps, under ( oldblue hub conversions )

This conversion is for when the carbon brush's are warn out or broken off and electric engagement does not work. They are not an Auto hub as such but are called Electric Hubs.

three ways to do the conversion
this one is pretty slick
Rad Cruisers have an adapter that works
and the spindle out from an older 40.60.70 series swap.
i prefer the last one but never tried Old Blue conversion.
i love his ingenuity.
