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

Conversion Points:

  • Use the "Sun Traditional" E-Bike Conversion Kit from E-BikeKit
  • 10Ah batteries are not recommended for DIY conversions because frame modification is needed for mounting
  • 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 9Ah or 20Ah battery instead
