Ships fully assembled from our warehouse in Philadelphia PA. The trike is enclosed in a heavy cardboard box fastened to a shipping pallet, delivered by motor freight truck with liftgate service. We use a variety of freight carriers based on your shipping destination. When the trike ships you will receive an email from us with tracking information. Tracking is less precise than UPS or FedEx. The freight company will contact you before the final delivery is made in order to arrange the drop-off with you. 

Delivery time:
    East Coast: 2-4 business days
    Midwest: business 3-5 days
    West coast: 5-7 business days

With liftgate service, the truck can only lower the pallet to the ground, they cannot deliver it inside your house. You will need to open the box and dispose of the pallet afterwards.

Shipping size: 80" x 40" x 44" x 190lbs

Please note: This trike ships with the E-BikeKit User Manual for details on the electric-drive system and also with the SUN official manual for the trike itself. The video section above contains assembly instructions and tips for getting started and using your new electric bike. The Specifications sections should also provide most of the information you'll want to know. If you have any questions or suggestions of additional information you would like to see posted, please let us know. Official manuals are in development, and once completed, they will be offered to customers that request them.

If you already have a Sun Traditional and want to convert it to electric, we offer conversion kits at EBikeKit.com, including kits specifically for the Traditional:

Conversion Points:

  • Use the "Sun Traditional" e-bike conversion kit from EBikeKit
  • 10ah batteries are not recommended for DIY conversions because frame modification is needed for mounting
  • 36-volt is recommended, to keep the maximum speed to 15mph
  • 9ah and 20ah batteries fit easily in the basket, but 10ah batteries won't mount in the basket without modification. For ElectricTrike.com we offer this (see video below) but for conversion at home we recommend using a 9 or 20ah battery instead
