I have been riding it around, it's so much fun! I will add it to the EV Album too when I get a distance rating... all most there!

Pully swap is done... but the motor at high speeds can't keep up with the wind resistance @ 35-40 mph. Still doing some testing with it.

And just so everyone knows yeah i did make a "el convertible", as I call it, and yes, it just folds back in to the bed. I will post some pics on my cardomain.com site. look for rwg42985 and you can see some other things I have come up with.
