Falco build on Specialized Hardrock, vintage 1990's.


Well-Known Member
I had the Falco Hx500 motor rebuilt on a 26" wheel. I build this for my son at Univ of Maryland, to book across campus.

Kudos to Falco's easy programming. Set the speed limit to 20 mph and adjusted for a horizontal drop out.

Battery is 48V, 11.6 Ahr.

Yes, those grips are mounted in reverse.

Story: I had to swap handlebars for this bike and I slit the grip down the middle for time sake, thinking i'd get new grip. Due to time, I reused the old ones but flipped them 180 and used glue. Lame, I agree, but it works for college.
