secondly, any news? How did the DVLA react to the news?
Thirdly, for the benefit of a new boy, could you outline the rough costs for the digital readout/controller/throttle/hall effect sensor set up/charger - (I know the cost of the motor/personal choice for batteries ) please?
Thanks again - I'm seriously considering this now - I think I'll find a dead 4t scoot and remove the conrod and fit a sprocket setup after seeing your "journey".
Hi Dangle_kt and welcome to ES,
I am very pleased that you have found this thread useful and inspiring. I have not sent the logbook off yet ( note to self: do it soon
the cost is not to bad... digital watt meter Â£25, speed controller Â£40, throttle Â£5, hall setup Â£10 and charger Â£35 the motor was Â£60 and the battery's that I now have (50v 20Ah worth) was around Â£250. The scooter was not that cheap (Â£100) and I could have got a much better one for my money if I wasn't so impatient .
There is another thread which Im sure you must have seen http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=19794
with a slightly different approach to fitting the motor, it seems a much easier way but do take up more room. Also there is this thread http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=21918
which is also very intresting .
