Street tracker build

Post by Toby82 » Aug 29, 2017 6:26 am

About two years from when the idea of building an electric flat tracker style street bike first started to now and I finally having a rolling bike to show.
Frame and swingarm has been designed from ground up and will suit either an Emrax 228 or zero 75-7 motor and around 5 kWh of lipo.

It's looking great Toby! Love the use of the battery box as a structural element!

Cool! I just made another 550 cell order, but half of them are spoken for. I should have about 240 left. Might be a bit short of what you need but we can always order more.

That thing looks awesome!
I'm in Newy too. I'd love to see it going one day.
Where abouts in Newcastle are you?

Cool.

I'm in Swansea. I'd love to have a look at it some time. I gotta finish my electric minibike too.

Nice nice! That motor should be good for peaks of 50 kW right?

This drive train setup is what Zero is running in the 2017 SR. Zero states 52kw peak and 775 amp. I'll start with a 5.4:1 gear ratio so should get decent acceleration with around 850nm delivered to the rear wheel...
