Great bike! I'll be interested to see how you arrange the batteries in the finished bike. Most bike conversions end up with four big, ugly square lead/acid batteries hanging out in front of the rider's legs. Looks terrible, and is horrible for aerodynamics.

I'm also interested in your plans to wean your house off of the grid. I'm planning on, at least, covering the power requirements for the aircon in summer. Have you looked at solar-heated stirling generators? I prefer them over solar panels myself, because they can be maintained. Wheras solar panels are a not repairable if damaged by hail or something. I could also build one in my garage - once I get one.
Making do with a Honda Civic. Tesla Model 3 reserved. Still kinda want an SVX for fun, though.
