Finally have an electric vehicle.

Behold! A Palmer Twosome! It's going to get a complete teardown, sandblast and paint the frame and wheels, fix the fenders, modify the seat to be a bit wider, with cushier new cushion and backrest. All new wiring and LED lights of course. And yes, a new cover for the top. Might go with pink and white stripes with white fringe for a Fantasy Island sort of thing... A plexi windshield and full soft cab would be nice to extend how long it can be used.

I'd like to drastically modernize the electronics and controls. I found a 1985 date on the manufacturer's label on the front fork. It has two very sad looking 220AH 6 volt golf cart batteries in it.
