Going for FOUR

Hey guys.

I am going to try rigging up the cycle with four batteries today.

I have decided to have the two upper front batteries side-by-side, sticking out a little bit.

I have some "unistrut" I got at the Home Depot - $10 for 10 feet. Nice strudy stuff, but it cuts fine with a hacksaw, and it comes with holes in it for bolts.

I will snap some pics as I work on it, so you can see when I am done.

Somewhere around, I have an old, hand-held GPS. I would love to find that to test against the speedometer. I don't trust the speedometer accuracy.

-Ben
