Single speed ebike

I'm selling my ebike because i want to built an electric moped. It is a 250w geared motor from Shengyi and it runs with a 36v 10.4ah battery. The kit was bought 25-04-2018 and has done almost 150klm in total. I will send the receipt of purchase. I changed the handle bar, the brakes and added a suspe...

Re: Need advice on electric dirtbike

What is the reason for wanting to fit an RC style motor to a dirt bike? They are designed more for high speed than high torque, which is usually evident in the size of the output shaft. To get around this you need some sort of gear reduction system which will just complicate the design and make the...

Re: battery and frame DIY

I attached my 36v battery on my steel frame, with 3 holes. 2 were already predrilled ( not bottle holder holes) and i drilled one more fore safety reasons. No problems so far.

Re: E scooter vs E light cafe racer

They are from China so you'll need to pay import taxes. No idea how much that is for your country? And you will need a serious battery that can provide enough amps to take full advantage of the possibilities and have adequate range. So a 72V 30Ah pack (but rather more Ah) is needed. In that case, i...

Re: E scooter vs E light cafe racer

That's a better basis to start with indeed :thumb: I would use a mid drive motor with chain to the rear wheel. That way you can use different gear ratio's to find the best one for acceleration vs speed. And you won't need a new rear wheel/brake. That would look much better than different wheels fro...

Re: E scooter vs E light cafe racer

I looked for used electric scooters localy, but all of them were 250w or at best 500w. i can't import something like that because of high custom taxes. I will bite the bullet and get everything i need brand new, or if i will find something for sale here. I also found a better base to begin, my best ...

Re: E scooter vs E light cafe racer

Then try to find a decent electric scooter with bad lead acid batteries and convert that. It seems you want more speed and range than you can affort. The best you can do is read up on as much information so you gain a lot of knowledge. In the mean time search in your area for electric vehicles that...

Re: E scooter vs E light cafe racer

My donor mopped is a honda c50. I can't sell anything from it, because it's not working. I will sell my ebike to raise some extra cash, but since this is a slow building project, i will have enough money to get the parts i need in the long run. It doesn't have to be a 60mph top speed bike, i can liv...

Re: E scooter vs E light cafe racer

60mph on a Yamaha Jog? Forget it. Even if you CAN find the fast hub to fit, not sure it's out there, but that's not the bike to be going that fast on. The Onyx would be dicey. Just build your plans around a solid platform. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Bluetooth-72v-8000w-QS-273-electric-bike-hub...

YOu'll probably want to read at least a few of the many threads about the different kinds of cells, and packs built for higher power usage. Different cells have differetn capabilities, so which ones you use will determine how many you need. Some cells are higher capacity, and some are higher C-rate...

Re: E scooter vs E light cafe racer

Ok, got it. So if i want to determine how many sels i need for that battery, how do i do it? It will be a 20s ? p. Sorry for the trouble. The cells you use will have an amp-hour rating depending on their size and chemistry. So if you need 50Ah of capacity, and your cells are 2200mAh, then you would...

Re: E scooter vs E light cafe racer

I don't want the 40 miles range while traveling at top speed, just normal in city riding. I guess i wouldn't mind a 50mph top speed. So what voltage do you suggest? Are 72v enough? And are those generic escs suitable for this?
