I painted the kickstand and rear brake pedal.



I need new brake pads. Fortunately, the old ones clearly have numbers marked on them, which should make it easier to order new ones.



I got the wheels properly mounted again, although I had to remove all the batteries and everything to lighten the frame enough for me to lift from the table back to the ground.

There were some big high-voltage disconnects in the space I was working on the cycle, so I couldn't resist parking right in front of them.

hey ben, I read through all 21 pages in the last 2 hours. I remember reading the first 10 or so when I was in Germany for a foreign exchange. I made a vow to myself when I got back to come see your bike. well 2 years later i have found my way back to the site and now I give you a standing ovation for all your hard work. You are really a model to us all here at ecomodder and general community taking the pride in your work AND saving some gas for those who "cant" do without. I actually have a bike that I was thinking of getting to electric 1974 Honda 360. I am working on parts not exactly sure how or if I will get it going. As sad as I am to say it I may have to keep it gas driven due to lack of funds. mabe I could get your carbs if they fit . maybe we could trade my non working one for your one with bad carbs haha. I live In colgate, near germantown so if you had a free hour maybe i could stop in to marvel.

What are you doing on Sunday?

The Milwaukee Electric Car Club will be meeting at the Milwaukee Makerspace all day. My cycle is over there. I'm still finishing the rebuild.

A couple other guys are working on electric pickup trucks and other projects.

We'll probably both be there most of the day. I'll be there around the start time which is 10:00.

I don't need any tools brought, I don't know about Ben. The Makerspace is pretty well stocked with tools though.
