Re: 1970 Vespa 50s electrification project

Jim, please understand that just for now, you'll have to take your own measurements, or ask someone willing to share theirs :-)

Re: 1970 Vespa 50s electrification project

I did think about it.. The originals were rubber, so definitely made to take up some vibrations. Buuut, the temptation of using what you have on hand, you know... And, to what extent will the new motor vibrate, compared to the old one ? 😅

Re: 1970 Vespa 50s electrification project

Some updates. In no particular order, I've been: - Changing the CA PCBA for the third time - Turned POM bushings for the swingarm - Painted the swingarm - Re"wrapped" the battery. Looking much cleaner now, and easier to handle with all the wires and connections coming out from the top - Ad...

Re: 1970 Vespa 50s electrification project

Well, not enough to change my mind just yet, but thank you for the interest ! Since a largeframe would need many of the measurements altered; maybe the photos I've provided is all you'd need ? A little more design work, but you're going to habe to do some anyway 🙃

Re: Cycle Analyst V3 preview and first beta release

I have, in two different ways (which I don't intend to reveal as I don't want to destroy my reputation on the forum :lol: ) burnt the PCB/main PIC of my CA's. I am now currently on my third PCB. I choose to desolder the pads as this is quicker than rerouting the wires through my old Vespa frame agai...

Thanks guys. Generally I hand out 3D and even 2D drawings of everything I do. For this one, I'm gonna hold on to them for just a little while, in case this could add up to something in the future. Hope you understand :-)

Re: Kelly Controller 12V

Hi,

I would also be reluctant to have my 12V system share the same ground as my high voltage (battery voltage) system.

Just purchase a decent isolated (very important!) DC-DC converter and you'll be fine. it is super simple to get up and running.

Hei Hector, I can only speak for myself and Aaron mason here on the forum, but the short answer is that you would need a little bit of design skills to have a custom swingarm made. it took both of us a lot of measuring and CAD seign to get ours completed (especially Aarons', which turned out to be a...

Re: 1970 Vespa 50s electrification project

Well, I guess it's time to be honest :D This is the very first test run! Had some substantial amount of rubbing between tire and frame. I hadn't tried the full range of motion of the suspension while having the wscooter up in the air. Rookie mistake :lol: https://www.dropbox.com/s/50tiw5p6m6d1m6a/vi...
