Was just looking for some feedback from anyone willing to listen to my
I have the chassis for this little project, a 1989 Honda VTR 250, its
almost full stripped, just have to drop the engine... found the bike
with a bad CDI box, for next to nothing, steel frame so it will be
easy to weld.
Now, here is what I'm thinking for this project. I've been looking on
ebay for somethings but I haven't found everything I need. The motors
that I have found on ebay and such, people are getting top dollar for
the motors since people like me are looking for them for projects like
48v Motor, relay, controller, Kit # 2C - 24 to 48 Volt System Series
w/ PM Motor http://www.evdrives.com/kits_conversion.html some
controllers have built in dc to dc converters but not sure if thats
what i want yet...
On-Board Battery Charger not essential but would be nice,
A DC to dc converter to take the 48v system down to 12v to run the
lights and the horn on the bike
And some cheap batteries.... haven't decided on the batteries yet, it
all depends on where I can get 4, 12v batteries.. or 2, 24v
batteries. I would have more versatility with sealed batteries but
lead acid will be much cheaper. Ideally, I would like to use
something like Optima yellow tops but I'm not set on anything yet and
the yellow tops are expensive. http://www.optimabatteries.com/optima_products/yellowtop/index.php
Would like to try and get 15 miles out of a charge with a top speed
So.... here we go....
