Here's a picture of the other side from the Alta forum. Says they got it from surron Facebook page.
Is that a gear box? Multiple speeds or gear reduction in oil bath? I would like either more than a jack shaft reduction.

Re: DENZEL electric dirt bike on Indiegogo. Just launched

I wish they made the 4,000 watt version with the horizontal engine mounts. Been looking for something like this but the 1,000 watt seems to weak.

Re: Kawasaki Z125 build

Is that the stock swingarm or custom? Very clean build! I have a kymco 125 k pipe I stuffed a 17 HP 155cc pit bike race engine into but I have been thinking of converting it. The swing arm seems way to wide for hub motor so I'm wondering how hard it is to source custom swing arm.

Re: RadPowerBike RadCity Commuter

I'm interested in the new rad runner it looks like like a great value I couldn't build a bike like it for the money. I'm wondering how many parts your bike has in common with it, maybe same motor, battery, controller? I'm following thread, especially interested in general quality.

I can't wait to test ride one. It may be very difficult to get it licensed for the street.

Re: Why never see metal cast around wound stators?

Wouldn't encapsulating a stator with electrically conductive metal squander a huge amount of energy to induction? Really, you want to encapsulate it with diamond. Excellent thermal conductivity but electrically insulative. Let us know how it goes. DLC (diamond like carbon) is getting cheaper and be...

Re: List of racing E-motos

Not a race bike but for your street emoto index might be worth a mention. Way back in the day on this forum I remember being amazed by I think it was jay 64 built a full size lithium powered motorcycle. Had to of been one of the first. Not sure that build thread still exists.

Shanghai customs sells swingarm for hubmotors, hub motor, controller, and other custom parts for cub. There website is under construction but could probably contact them on their Facebook page.

This is promising. The scib battery has been around for awhile. Great at everything but capacity but sounds like they might have fixed that.

Re: Motorbike Conversion - 1985 Nighthawk 750S - From Junk

You might be able to use the regulator rectifier to step down voltage for headlight and turn signals. Two parts to it. Rectifier turns ac to DC, regulator steps down voltage but does it by shunting excess current to frame but if ground goes to battery maybe work? Anyways it's the part attached to th...

If it's heavier than stock your probably going to want to add some preload to the front fork. Get some heavy schedule pvc pipe that will fit inside of the top of the suspension tubes. Add about an inch more or less till you have about an inch or two of compression total when you sit on the bike. Mig...

Re: Motorbike Conversion - 1985 Nighthawk 750S - From Junk

Actually I'm positive that is an oil cooling radiator. Probably doesn't really matter other than being coated in oil it's much less likely to be corroded inside.

Great build! You should of been on junkyard wars. My first bike was a 1982 450 Honda night hawk which I still have and plan on converting to EV someday.
