Ah well, glad you bagged your ride, and fixed those pesky lipo's. Later mate, happy trails!
I need other stuff too. My 500watt motor is getting very hot
after a long run? I took a run over to Stirling this week and as I rode I could smell that burning plasticy smell! Prob wires getting hot! I had to pedal a good part of the way back and my butt was aching by the time I got home - mind you I had put the old spoiler seat back on till I get my other seat and backrest sorted out.
I had to abandon the jackshaft idea on thes spoiler as it wasn't working right, it took ages to get up to any kinda speed plus the bloody chain(s) kept slipping off, and that was after I made up a chain tenshioner. So I went back to the 11t mini moto sprocket on motor and the 54t sprocket on wheel.
I downloaded a new app for my Nokia N95 phone - Sports Tracker. I took a run over to a mates lastnight and gave it a go. My avrage speed was 22mph.PLANS. & WISH LIST
Fit and wire up new indicator mirrors that arrived last weekend.
Fit Saddlebags once they arrive.
Make up a box for batts/controller and other gizmos. Something along the lines Aussiejester/Kim made up for his trike.... http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4432&start=525
Sort out seatpost/seat and backrest.
Make up and rear rack for my bike box.
Fit bike box and wire up rear lights - Rear light/Indicators/Brake light.
Fit and wire up trailer lights connector.
Get a bar bent to hold trailer hitch.
Wire up - Horn - Front light.
Re-fix/fit front left brake caliper.
Re-fix/fix rear brake caliper. Fit new Tandam brake cable that arrived last week.
Paint rear wheel.
Re-paint front wheel.
Sand down and paint the front forks black. Rechroming would cost me a small fortune.
Make up a phone & camera holder for handlebars.
Once all of the above is done and working ok without any hiccups... Strip down the whole bike and repaint it black.

Im thinking of making a busbar to run my bike on, something like this...http://evmc2.wordpress.com/2011/07/10/copper-tube-bus-bar-idea/
for wiring up my lipos, rather than buggering about trying to solder a snakesnest of wires. I'll post up a photo when made and before I connect up any batts etc just to make sure with the boffins that all is well
I'd like to get a bigger motor, prob a 1000's watter. Possibly one like flyingmonkey has, thats if I can source one out? - ( he looks to get a fair turn of speed outta it ).
1000w 36v currie motor.
On and on and on ... the list is endless
Win the lotto to pay for stuff and find time to do all of the above, without pulling the rest of my hair out
PS. Forgot to tell you thatwe have another Spoiler - Chopper guy/build in our midst....http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=29206
