The lead is out of useful life, so its time to swap in something a bit lighter.
The build will be 20AH @ 44.4V of Turnigy LiPo packs, thats 12S4P of 5AH cells, or 2S4P of the 6S packs.
1000W GM Rear Hub
15 FET GM Controller, moded to 65A
BM-6's, 1/2 grip twist throttle, cruse control, Watts-Up
I intend on drilling some holes in the motor covers, and wiring everything up with 10 gauge high temp silicone wire.
I will be adding more pictures as I finish things...
Here is the bike in question. A Schwinn S-60, with about 1500 hard e-bike miles already on it. Its taken some abuse...
I waterproofed the controller, and all the wiring is done aside from the batts. Just waiting a bunch of stuff from china before I can get it electrified.
The rear derailer smashed into the spokes off a jump at 20+ MPH, its done. I had no chain for a little bit, but im trying out this single gear setup. Its not like I plan on pedaling anyways.
Heres my brothers bike. Same parts will be going on this bike, along with my friends old wal-mart special full suspension bike.
The LiPo made it off the boat today, gotta keep a fire extinguisher handy!
2x ECO 6-10 Chargers will be used, one per 6S4P 20AH group
I can only get about 3-5AH out of these 60+LBS of lead... The 3LB of LiPo on top is roughly equivalent...
