Im just about to buy this Viking Arriba ebike, buy this bike is just peddling assist.. i just want to covert it and put a throttle on it because i like the way the look of the bike and most of the bike with the throttle on it is way to expensive.. anyway Do you think converting it and connecting wires are too difficult? Do i have to buy new controller to match it to the throttle wires or is it just easy to do? Thanks in advance

The bike's original controller may or may not have a connector to attach a throttle to.If it does not have a throttle connector then a different controller would need to be installed that has a throttle connector. Most aftermarket BLDC controller have connectors for both a throttle and a pedal assist sensor so it could have both of these features if you want it to.
