Cgame, The problems with all the battery weight over the rear wheel at high speed are definitely not confidence inspiring. The batteries are 12volt, 12ah B&B's. The dimensions of each battery are what eventually led me to the ammo box. Considering the narrowest configuration, this size ammo box ...
