    Thanks, we’ve been meaning to come by. Was working on the the bike outside this am in the driveway then the wife (Jaime) say’s hey it’s getting dark I said it’s not gonna rain.....and not 5mins later (video).
    Windows in the house/cars (no keys to cars) on us and the sky opened up big time.
    The rain coming off the roof was unbelievable... welcome to my day

    Piecing it together, started gathering parts this week. I realized I was missing a collar for mounting the rear brake resi, ordered one/recieved it yesterday, well today going through some parts boxes I found 3....figures.
    I used a cloth covered type resevior line (chickened out on the steel braided line) I didn’t feel like loosing blood today.
    I’m going to do the steering stem tonight so next wk it’s the swinger and forks and I’ll have a roller. YAY...
    I bought a blaster/banshee tailight for this project, it’s tiny (half size of Honda’s) so hopefully the battery will slide out underneath it easily out the back and it’ll mount nicely to my (made to fit) blaster grab bar I hope.

    A couple days later, im just going to edit and put a couple pics here: adding a little shine, 1/8” alum sheet I figure adding 3 more lbs isn’t going to hurt. Motor plate, and two panels mounted to the 3 stock frame/motor mounts, they’ll be a 2-1/2” space between them for the motor controller/ main circuit breaker and battery indicator and a phone charger of sorts. Probably a main disconect too but there’s already a couple failsafes built in the system. The alum sheet is out of harms way to get hurt by it I think, they’ll be in the center of the frame only a little wider than the top frame tube.

    One side done, well I have to cut some spacers but so far so good.
    Think I’ll give it a brushed alum look though instead of this mirror finish.

    Those three motor wires you see need to go through the alum plate but I won’t drill those until it’s ready to be wired up.

    She’s moving outside. I’ll weigh it as it goes together. She won’t be moving on it’s own power today but I suppose this is a step closer.

    ———
    I worked on this till about 8 last night. Motor is in/ chain is on I need to tighten it a little. The suspension works great, I needed to remove the 1/8” alum plate under the motor and add 1/2” plate for the chain/swingarm geometry to be right. In other words so the chain wouldn’t tighten/loosen as rear suspension traveled.
    All set now/ pain in the butt to get right though. It’s a cheap colored china chain for now (now that I know how many links I’ll buy a good one) luckily the front/rear sprocket alignment was very close I used a straight edge and a laser tool I bought and honestly the straight edge worked better.
    “Hope” to have this moving later today on it’s own power, well maybe

    C'mon by anytime, tracks 100% done...

    62+82+44=188lbs

    So, 188lbs so far sans motor and battery pack?

    You think you can pull in under 250lbs fully assembled? Seems plausible to me

    Chop, I weighed the motor also this am it was 29lbs.
    Battery pack was I believe 13lbs
    Seat and fender guessing another 20

    I was getting nervous on the weight + my 170lbs

    “But” not anymore. Just as it was getting dark tonight it came to life. I kinda rushed buttoning up the wires while being eaten by mosquitos. So keyswitch hanging, a couple wires just thrown together, I put the seat on and hit the throttle and NOTHING/ well untill I noticed I didn’t turn the batt pack on. (Separate key on batt)
    I gotta say I’m impressed. I slowly pressed the gas just not knowing what to expect at all- front wheel came right off the ground. I let go of the throttle and the wife said I gave her the holy chit look.
    Rode it maybe a couple hundred feet in the dark no lights eating bugs checked to make sure 1,2,3 speed worked and reverse and the brake cut off works they do. Thankfully
    Just gotta say I’m very impressed with the power. It’s very quiet, with a helmet on you won’t hear it al all I bet. I can’t wait to experiment with it, the motor controller programmed through an app on my phone and right now I’m only letting it have 75% power u can bet I’ll be turning that up.....
    I’m still in awe
    I’ll do my best to get a couple videos by next wk end, hmmm I can see a couple sick days this wk.
    So yup so far so good.
    This is the last pic I took before dark and closing the cover panel Click image for larger version.

    Shep
    I’ll edit my grammar later

    Edit: this is how she sits now- chain needs adj I see. I suppose I gotta throw 300 for new fenders now.
    My son wants the blue coil spring and seat to stay (it’s his school colors) plays sports.
    So that’s ok.
    Probably have a whole day messing with odds and ends too to finish it up.

    Well he wanted it wide it sits at just over 50” inches. I told him he’d be snaggin’ trees from behind if he’s not careful.

    Looks great Shep! Very creative. Can't wait to see it all together with the fenders and stuff. You going to put the fuel tank on it? Maybe you can rig it up as a trunk/storage by cutting in a trap door.

    Thanks guys,
    Yes, they’ll be a tank I picked one up from sled crazy over a yr ago for a plastics project that barely got off the ground.
    But seeing as though this tank wouldn’t hold loose change (rust) dents it’ll be a great candidate with a quart of bondo (already has a layer of bondo w/primer but needs more work. The filler has already been shaved off for a flat section for volt/amp gauge well that may change not sure yet.
    I ordered a o-ring chain yesterday, I did notice even though the motor has a hum the non o-ring chain made just as much noise so maybe orings will quiet it down some.

    The tank clears my alum panels underneath by 1/2” inch, lucked out there.
    Apologize for sideways pics- I gotta figure that out, maybe hold my phone another way

    Very nice build! I've enjoyed following this one because of how unique it is.

    When I was graduating college the GM EV1 was out at the time and my dream was to land something in electric cars (EV1 was the only one at the time) but that died off for about 15 years until the latest Tesla craze.

    That is going to be one torque-y machine.

    Thnx, arky, schlepp
    I took a video- you’ll never get your minute back if u watch it
    One handed, only rear brakes hooked up/ well left front lever hooked up to e-brake, but works for temp.
    My phone is close to the motor so you’ll hear the whine.
    At maybe 25 feet away it’s silent (still waiting for a new chain)
    My older son said he’d hook up his go pro this wkend (woods riding)
    Still need to play with motor settings and I’ve still got wires hanging out (not done)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTsUPJxpIOs

    I’m still not use to the throttle it’s different to say the least
    Oh if anyone’s wondering, yes the lower stock engine mounts are still there they just aren’t used.
