Electric Duc Build

Post by stueveone » Nov 27, 2017 7:47 pm

Hi gang,

Just got started on my next build: a Ducati 999 Cafe Racer.Here is what I am shooting for:

Motor - Motenergy Me0913 (for now)
Controller - Sevcon Size 4 (for now, looking at Zeva possibly)
Batteries - Home brew with 18650's
Hp - 40 (for now)
Capacity - 10kWh
Range 80 (eventually)

Picked up the frame a few weeks ago. Designing a cable actuated hall effect throttle converter now and then it's on the motor mount and battery box.

Back to work,
Stueve

Super cool concept, would you mind taking a picture of the rear shock linkage? SamD has some pretty handy operated cable throttle boxes, not sure if hey use a hall sensor. Can be found in the for sale section.

That was the "ugly" Duc model, much nicer with it's clothes off! A café version will look very sweet!

Thanks for the feedback people!

Damn! Wasn't aware of SamD's converter. And at $30 you can't go wrong! However, I'm stubborn and still might finish up my own...

Doing some motor mockups right now (former cb750 mount shown). There are some interesting offsets I'll have to navigate. The Ducati motor is a stressed member, so whatever the motor mount looks like I'll have to make sure it's up to the task!

And here is your photo of the linkage Rube. Let me know if that works...
