Re: E-Trike Project

This looks like a great project! I love what you are doing with this. One thought, the chrome will make welding a pain. You will need to grind the chrome off. Or you could screw the sprocket to the spoke holes? Keep the updates coming. :D Matt Cheers matt :-) I wont actually be welding to the chrom...

Nice pix AJ, FWIW, my ancient Sturmey opens anti-clockwise. Rather than use a punch, I made two "keys" that fit in the slots by flattening nails with a hammer... I could then use a pipe-wrench to remove the top race. (The wrench could bite onto the keys, holding them in place and not slip...

Re: Home made chain drive cruiser

If you use a 11t motor sprocket and a 54t rear with no other reduction in the system, I estimate a top speed of 33 to 35kmh on 20" tyres. Aussie I have made a mistake. The 54t will give you more top speed not less. I don't know how I mixed that up. You would get around 70kmh, but it would be s...

Hi Kim, I have done a DF hybrid bike and a tadpole trike using #25 chain drive at the bottom bracket. There is a 90t Curry scooter sprocket http://www.electricscooterparts.com/sprockets.html (scroll down) if you need to gear down more, which is what I used but had a smaller motor than you.

Re: E-Trike Project

I'm with ya now miles Ill have to see how i can attach the original sprocket that comes on the hub to the hub housing when it arrives in a few days. Modifying the large sprocket to fit the hub will be an easier job, 1000watt has done this neatly on his cruiser i think i will probably take a similar ...

Re: E-Trike Project

Kim, As we talked before, I think you may need to take the motor drive to the existing input point on the 3 speed and take the drive to the wheel from a sprocket mounted on the hub gear shell. I may be wrong, but I think it might be problematic to back-drive these hub gears. Certainly worth testing...

Re: Home made chain drive cruiser

The second sprocket will need to be attached to the hub shell, or the internal gears will be bypassed. Aussie, I was wondering too, do you want to uterlise the gearing in the hub? If you use a 11t motor sprocket and a 54t rear with no other reduction in the system, I estimate a top speed of 33 to 3...

, I got mine (11t) off a friend who had bought several motors. The large sprocket is 80t, so the ratio is approx 7 to 1. Matt, my arithmetic is less than atrocious, i was hoping you could help me with the gearing or point me to a formula I can follow? I completely understand if you don't have the t...
