Daves first EV :)

Lol, needed a rig for the on switch and some leverage to bend the forks straight again, but we like it Got it running no problemo, figured it was worth the $25.

Still putting the pieces together to make a 1hp bicycle, then hopefully on to the motorcycle

I think I will wait for the next iteration or two before posting on EValbum though

Ha ha, not bad. I'm all about 2 wheeled EV's myself, no matter what size they are.

My last time in Iraq there was an Iraqi interpreter who rode an electric scooter all over the base I was on and people sometimes laughed at him a little, but deep down I think we were all a little jealous when he'd go whizzing by with no effort.

LOL! I have one of those, except it's yellow instead of blue!

The book on the thing says it will go 20 miles on a charge, but I can guarantee you that they really meant 20 BLOCKS!!!

Anyway... I took the body off of mine a while back, to see how everything worked, and promptly added two batteries to the two already there, for more range.

I tried to wire it up with 48 volts instead of 24 (MORE POWER!!!) but the controller cut power to the motor instead. I added a 6-volt battery to make 30 volts for a while, and it had more power, but things started smelling funny, so I just did the two strings of batteries for the 24 volts with more range, and the voltage doesn't drop so bad when you gun it!


The brake pedal is my enemy. The brake pedal is my enemy. The brake pedal...
