  1. I have these parts available for sale. They are from my 2020 Sondors X and are almost new. The parts have less than 80 miles of wear on them. Free shipping on all parts. Paypal only please. 500 Watt Bafang rear hub motor from 2020 Sondors X. The printing on the case of the motor has the information from the 750 Watt replacement motor, but the innards are the original 500 watt motor. $125.00 Controller from 2020 Sondors X - $40.00 LCD Display from 2020 Sondors X - $40.00 Throttle from 2020 Sondors X - $20.00
  2. Hello, I have a fork from a Sondors X for sale on ebay. Here is the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sondors-Ebike-Fork/143657052654 Thanks.
  3. Just wanted to close out this thread with some information for the next user looking at forks. I ended up taking a chance and buying a Bolany fat tire air fork on Ali Express before my bike arrived. I realize a sub-100 dollar fork is not something I should be taking jumps with and I am fine with that. I'm just an old fat guy who wants a smoother ride, and for that they are fine. I had ordered a white X, and wanted the forks to match. I also like the old school forks with the Sondors branding that they no longer offer on the X. When the forks arrived, I removed the decals and sanded the lowers and painted them white. I then found a place that does custom vinyl lettering and got some decals made. I'm very pleased with how it turned out. See before and after pics below. The bike arrived yesterday, and the fork was an easy swap with the original unsprung unit., and the tire clears just fine. Here it is on the bike I've only ridden it a couple of times, but I already love it. I live in a very hilly area, and I managed to snag a 1000 watt Bafang rear hub that I plan to adapt. The power cord runs from the other side of the motor, so I will need to look at that. Anyway, this was my experience. Your mileage may vary, but this is what worked for me.
  4. Will Sondors continue to manufacture the current ebike models?
  5. Hi Reddy, I'm curious what forks and what handlebars you are using on the white bike. Are they the stock items that came with the bike? Thanks. BTW, I ordered my X in white. Hopefully should be here by the end of June. DB
  6. Damn, those are some nice bikes. That was a great time to be alive. I started out on a Hodaka. I also had a Puch 125 MX and a Husky 250. The modern MX bikes look like toys to me. They don't have the character of the classic bikes. Yeah I'm definitely too old now for anything but looking at them. So does riding an ebike on the backroads remind you of the good old days? I'm hoping it does that for me.
  7. Thanks. Yes, I'm curious about the whole Ebike scene. I'm and old dirt bike guy who did trail riding and motocross way back in the 70's. I did a lot of street and off road bicycle riding in the 80's and 90's. I'm retired now and the ebike looked like something that could get me back on two wheels and on backroads and trails. I looked at e-motorcycles and concluded that I would probably hurt myself trying to do some of the old MX stuff that I did as a kid, so I decided to try and ebike to see if I could get some exercise and enjoy the dirt roads and trails that I live near. I think I choose the Sondors because it reminds me of a fun trail bike that my friend had nearly 50 years ago. How's this for a fat tire bike?
  8. Great stuff! Looks like you've been busy! I've communicated with Luna, and it sounds like they will not have any inventory for a while, and from the Bolton site concerning their fat tire fork: " Tires above 4.5" are not recommended as the fit can be very tight." The current Sondors X are 4.9
  9. Thanks Reddy, I appreciate all of the information. Yeah, the issue is that there a lot of reasonably priced third party fat forks that look exactly like what I see in pictures of Sonders X with air suspension, but with those 4,9 inch tires, will the third party stuff really fit the wheels? I can't imagine that Sondors has someone making a proprietary sized fork that only fits their bike, but I could be wrong. Guess I'll wait until I get mine, and just take it apart and measure everything.
  10. I just ordered a new X model and want to have air front suspension ready to install on the bike when it arrives in June. I saw the air forks available on the Sondors site, and have looked around at Luna and Bolton and third part shocks that may or may not fit or may or may not be available. I have two questions: 1. On the Sonders site it appears to be two shocks available for the X model. One that will only fit pre Jan 2019 bikes and one that fits only post Jan 2019 bikes. Anybody know what changed to make these incompatible? Maybe a tire size, or is the frame somehow different? 2. Are there any published specs on the measurements on the current X model fork? Thanks for your help.
