electric motorcycle tear down

(Fwd from Rick)

Here we go, the bike is down to the frame… going to order the electric motor this week…


My buddy Luke built a pretty crazy electric bike.

"Bike is totally scratch built from cro-mo tubing, wire, RC helicopter
batteries, and a car EV controller.


:slight_smile: "

Ordered the motor, controller, contactor, throttle, and battery charger last night. Now looking for scrap steel and any other scrap metal.

I am pretty sure you can stop by the scrapyard next to the hive and but it at cost.

I will be doing that, I have some, but I’m sure I’ll need more

Saw this today and thought of your bike, Rick


Apparently it's a guy's at Purdue who rides it around town pretty
