Hi Colab andto the forum.

You will need to find a set of steel front forks to fit your frame, but they must be suitable for "V" brakes and with conventional dropouts to accept either a 16" smart Pie or a 16" Magic Pie.

You will also need some suitable stunt pegs to use as footrests which could be simply threaded onto the axle if you can find some with M14 x 1.5 treads.

You can then modify the old forks and wheel assembly by attaching a long seat stem and seat to make it into a unicycle. :D

I want to respect the original shape with the modification, and stay in 16'' for the front Wheel !

Any ideas of a kit for it please ?

You can use either the Magic Pie front wheel Kit or the lower powered Smart Pie front wheel kit as both are available in 16" versions.

As there won't be any pedals to assist with I would go for the more powerful Magic Pie, but you will need to try and get the battery weight as far forward as possible to allow the front tyre to have as much traction as possible.

Tanks' Alan for your view point ! We 'll put the battery pack in the back on the rear Wheel. ;)

How's the project going? Must be finished and having fun by now! Here's my e-drifter build to compare, I used the 20" MPIII. You could have put a BMX fork on that frame and run the 20" MPIII instead which would have improved traction and given a bit higher top speed.
