Depending on what you will be getting, ie hub drive or geared mid drive, there are pros and cons for each of those wrt efficiency which may be worth exploring, eg. direct drive hub motors have reported compromised efficiency up hills etc and eat more battery in comparison with mid drive motors etc.

Either way, they look like lots of fun - good luck

Wow, that's in great shape for its age, Steve. Even us Americans (if you were a kid during the mid-'70s during the 10-speed boom here) know Gazelle. They made some beautiful racers too, but for everyday useful riding, that geometry your bike has provides a more upright and relaxed position.
Cheers Eric. I haven't owned it since the 50's but it does have some character. Picked up some interesting 'patina" (read surface rust) along its journey.

OMFG... fixies. Don’t make me post in the grumpy old man thread.
Post away if you must.
It's being said that fixed gear bikes "have become part of urban culture, they're great for fitness and most importantly they're trendy, so you'll look cool on one". Reason enough?
