Electra-punk

Postby rodgah » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:24 pm

My new project.....

I have always loved vintage bikes, never really wanted to own one just admired them for the simple ideas and the infant motorcycle design. In some ways I think bikes on endless sphere share the same characteristics, so Ive decided to build a bike following the same basic lines but electrically powered ..... kind of like a tribute I suppose.

Details are....
Frame
- 25mm Stainless Steel box 1.2mm wall and 50mm tube
- Brackets and braces laser cut
- Aluminium battery box
- 66deg head angle
- 80mm wide 26" rims, rear superwide 170mm hub(chopperUS)
- Schwalbe Fat franks stretched out
- ChoppersUS tripple tree forks.....modded with my own fork legs
- Chain lengths individually adjustable

Drive system
- 3220 5t wye in a MS single stage belt drive, 60T rear sprocket mounted on a MS adapter (geared for only 60km/h)
- CC HV160
- MS Magura and servo tester throttle adaptor
- 20AH of 12s lipo

Misc
- Hyperion 1420i Charger
- Hope tech m4s

Frame box done.

Frame box mounted

BB tube welded and mounted
Image

Bit more progress....
Image
Image
Image
Might be a little hard to see in the pics but the large belt pully is touching the lower drive mount so I had to get the drive mounts recut a bit taller and out of 5mm......

Frame box cover done....with quick release 1/4 turn screws in anodized blue....hard to get a good picture in low lighting
Image

Loops welded to the frame and fork leg to tie the brake lines to...
Image

Frame Finished

Forks
So the Forks from choppersus were not discbrake compatible(they were out of stock). So I am making new fork legs in stainless tube and brackets to match the rest of the frame.

Dropout and disc tab with jig and spacer to offset the tab 4mm as the standard(plus the washers for a bit extra adjustment)
Image
Image
Image

Forks Finished

I will keep adding updates to the start of this thread.....hopefully

Cheers
Rodger

Misc

For the charging side of things I have a Hyperion 1420i, and 2 meanwell 24v 350watt supplies. I decided to make a shelter out of zinc anneal to house the parts and protect any wandering fingers from 240v mains.

Laser cut sheet
Image

Hand folded and assembled. SS m4 screws and the tabs are just to allow the wiring to be wrapped around it.....needs some paint.
Image
Image
Painted.....28s balance charging anyone lol.
Image
Charge lead
Image

The sprocket adaptor that Matt machined fits perfectly....has enough space for the caliper to sit in beside the sprocket. Unfortunately choppersUS hubs are a little oversize, so I threw the adapter on the lathe and opened it up a fraction to accept the hub.

Image

and the result spacing
Image

and after rebating the caliper mount to move the caliper over...

Finished

I wish I had a local lazer cutter!! Looks great!
Power is a fascinating thing, the more you have, the more you want, but the real power is having the restraint not to use it all at once...............Um...Yeah..

The harder you work.....The luckier you get!!

update guys, frame is finished(up the top pics), needs the box and BB mount which I will add in a few days. Still waiting on choppersUS headset bearings + reducers (they sent me the wrong size forks) which has been sitting in USPS sort facility since the 22nd of august, so hopefully the tracking is wrong or I think its been lost.

Things still to go till I have complete bike of parts
-headstem bearings + reducers
-v4 belt drive (hopefully Matt will be sending soon)
-frame box and BB
-Fork legs welded
-Chain ring + freewheel + a couple of chains

Cheers

As I said in msn yesterday Wodger! :-P Love the front half, the rear, just IMHO, looks erm.."wrong" I understand its for chain alignment purposes and all but fpr the price you paid to have it fabricated for you, I would have liked to seen something lil more "elegant" lets say LoL.. Its quite simple to achieve chain clearance using more traditional looking seat/chain stays.

Suffice it to say, I think when buit you will have a funtional ride...

rodgah, looking really good mate ...

I know you got the triple trees from ChopperUS, but when I look for them I can't seem to find them. Would you mind putting up links for them, also your rims, tyres etc (things are hard to get in regional oz)

Thanks mate,

GT.....not real hard to find them....under frontends > forks >........http://www.choppersus.com/store/category/5/30/Forks/

the rims and hubs are also from choppersus (along with extrawide BB and all related parts....), and I had them spoked and trued locally with 14gauge spokes. Tyres brakes etc are from chainreactioncycles.com.....in my opinion the only place to buy bicycle parts online. Free shipping over $400 order and fast!.

Appart from the spokes I really havnt purchased anything locally....except getting material for the frame.... everything else has been ordered.

May I ask how much it cost you to have that battery box welded up? Its stainless steel I'm assuming, do you think it would cost more for Aluminium?

Thanks, Tom.
Yet to build, I'll get there one day...

Thanks for the heads up. I write (or used to) web applications for a living and my expectations of how web shopping should be and how it actually is is way different. I can never find shit :shock:

Dont know an itemised price as I had alot of stuff done at the same time. Its aluminium. If I had to guess I would say there is about an hour to 1.5 hours labour and about $75 of material so probably worse case would be $200.

yeah.

If they dont show up again, ill repost the originals.....or just use external hosting for them.

part of the reason I am keeping everything at the start.....makes it easy to fix when it all goes south.
