New to forum from Southern California. I am planning on electrifying my Vintage British Raleigh Bike. It’s a Mixte model from the 70s/80s era and I love the classic looks of it. Since the bracket measured at 40mm or less, Mid drive motor maybe out of the equation. The wheels come in at 27.5 inch.
I have a golf cart electric trolley that has a battery pack 36v==5200mAH==192.4WH and I’d like to use that for the ebike while I’m not golfing and vice versa.
Anyone here got any blue print I should follow?
Does my list of what I described about sounds promising? Do-able?

Hi; Raleigh made some fine mixte frames in the 70s, 80s. From your pic, the headtube seems very upright, Should be 70-74 degrees as I recall. I would examine the frame for any damage before starting the project. On a closer look, it's probably a photo illusion. Your bike appears in beautiful condition and the mixte is an ideal basis.
