The PAPILLIONAIRE Cafe Racer works very well at 3 things: speed, comfort and style. The Cafe Racer is avalible in both 3 and 8 speed, the 8 speed being the more appropriate option for the electric conversion. The inverted handle bars offer a lower and more aggressive riding possition which fits very well with the old school style of the original cafe racers, made for urban speed. The chromoly steel is perfect for a durable, reliable ride and makes a solid base for the electric convertion. This customer went for a 36V, 11.6H battery with a 200W which will give him good range and keeping with the theme of light weight speed.
The PAPILLIONAIRE comes in many different colours with different matching parts, The Olive green colour scheme and crafted brown leather saddle and grips really set the bike off well with gum trye walls. All pointing at the old school style of the English cafe race. A timeless classic.

It’s the time of year for late nights spent watching le Tour with Liggett and Sherwen reminding us how warm it is in the Northern Hemisphere. Indeed, in the midst of a Perth winter it can be a little hard to maintain the motivation to get out there on the bike. That’s where this recent conversion of ours comes in.
The bike in question is a Lemond Alpe d’Huez; few names are as heavily steeped in the folklore of the Tour de France. Greg Lemond was a cycling legend, inspiring generations of elite American road cyclists and as for Alpe d’Huez, well, ask anyone who follows cycling and they’ll tell you just how many of the most captivating stages have traversed this grueling climb. Suffice it to say that this bike was a purpose built, lightweight road bike set up in singlespeed for simple, no nonsense performance and handling.
Its owner, Dennis, loved it, but wanted to take it on longer rides without worrying about getting caught out by the odd steep climb or brutal headwind that Perth bike commuters are all too familiar with. We fitted it with an electric conversion kit that was in keeping with the simplicity and performance of this bike.
One of the lightest Electric Bikes we’ve set up, the Alpe D’Huez is sure to make hill climbing a breeze!
Using one of our 700c Rear hub motor kits and a Panasonic 36V 9Ah tube battery we were able to convert this bike into a truly capable recreational road bike. Weighing in at under 16 kilos, it’s one of the lightest builds we’ve ever done which ensures good acceleration from the 250 Watt motor as well as a range of over 35 kilometres on a charge with light to moderate pedal input.
As regular cyclists will tell you, staying on the bike during the winter can be a drag but it’s truly rewarding if you stick it out. So if you’re looking for something that’ll motivate you to keep riding even when the weather gets inclement, an electric conversion kit for your bike may be well worth considering!
This week’s fantastic special is the AVANTI Discovery 2 decked out with the SOLAR BIKE mini-motor Panasonic tube kit. It’s one of the most comfortable commuter bikes out there due to the suspension forks and suspension seat pole. With the electric conversion kit this bike will quickly become your main form of transportation.
Usually this setup goes for $1990. We’ve put it on special for one week only starting today for $1690. Please come into the shop to take one for a test ride!

Following one to many effort-full rides home from Freo going back up the hill, I thought to my self there must be an easier way to do local trips without using my car. Turns out there was!
I visited Matt and Wills in their shop in Fremantle because apart from being really knowledgeable about bike stuff, they also had electric conversion kits that I could put on the bike I already had… winning!
Since getting the kit I hardly use my car and I travel further on my bike that I ever thought I would – because now it’s easy. I often ride to from White Gum to Cottesloe for a coffee and I’ve even gone into Perth on it. The best part of having it is that I can ride my bike normally if I want to or turn the motor on and feel the wind in my hair… Its the best decision I’ve made in years.
So thank you Matt and Wills, thank you so very much. My trusty steed has served me well.
The Breezer Uptown is a shop favourite and with it’s stylish looks, quality frame and comfortable riding position it’s easy to see why. We spent a lot of time trying to find a stepthrough bike that’s suitable for both smaller riders and our electric conversion kits and the Uptown is a great fit.
A stylish and comfoprtable stepthrough with Solarbike’s brand new pedal assist system
The aluminium frame has among the lowest step-over heights of any bike on the market, making getting on and off much more comfortable than other women’s specific bikes. Not only this, but the smaller 26″ wheels allows for much snappier handling as well as a lower riding position, further benefiting comfort. We’ve fitted the Uptown with one of our newest electric conversion kits featuring an updated pedal assist system with a lovely colourful display and a newer slim-line Panasonic lithium ion rack battery. This is one of the cutest electric bicycles on the market and well worth a test ride.
It’s been pretty busy at the shop over the last couple of weeks and in that time, we’ve churned out some great new electric conversions on some models that we had not yet had the pleasure of working on. That said, there have been plenty of bread and butter conversions too like this shop favourite: The Giant Cross City.
We’ve been fitting our electric conversion kits to these bikes from the very beginning and it’s easy to see why: these are well priced, well specc’d and are fully compatible with our systems. Not only this, but they’re a blast to ride! This one is the women’s specific RX version which runs a high end Shimano 30 speed groupset, Giant’s lightweight wheelset and finishing kit and a SL Aluminium frame mated with a composite fork.
A great flatbar road bike with our long range electric conversion kit
We’ve fitted it with one of our newest systems: the Tigershark 36V 14Ah Lithium Ion Battery. This is a slimline, lightweight system featuring the latest Panasonic cells and should give a range of around 55kms with light to moderate pedaling input. As for the motor, the composite fork means we’ve opted for a rear wheel drive 200 Watt mini motor which should give good power assistance up to speeds of 30 km/h.
The entire Cross City family of bikes are ideal for electric conversion and this top spec one makes for a very light final product, weighing in at around 18 kilos all up. With quality components and construction it’s sure to be a reliable commuter that’s comfortable and efficient enough to cover long distances week in, week out.
This bicycle had done 30km trips a day for about 4 years on a 17Ah rack battery; it was time for an upgrade as the range had slightly dropped and it was no longer possible to commute the 30km on a single charge anymore. The customer opted for the newest of SOLAR BIKE’s long range battery options. This one has a huge 36V 21Ah capacity and it’s added bonus is that it’s small enough to fit within the frame of the bicycle for better handling. A battery is a consumable item but if you’re getting thousands of km out of one for a few years then it’s well worth investing in a top quality one right from the beginning that will well and truly give you your desired range. The new Tiger Shark battery styles are available in 36V 14Ah and 36V 21Ah. It’s far beyond what many people need but if you’re running a larger high power direct drive motor then it may well be worth the investment from the beginning. These new moulds have the latest 3500mAh cells from PANASONIC that came out last year. They are the best on the market this year for sure for commercially available ebikes.
