Starting my first ES thread!
Thank you to the ES Community for being here.
I am building an electric moped conversion using the HPM3000B golden motor and a 1969 Hodaka Ace 90 Frame.
I will be using a Kelly controller purchased from AMP an ES member. Currently I have almost completed the rolling frame chassis. All of the parts came individually from e bay and I am assembling them piece by piece. I am trying to find a proper 420 chain sprocket to fit the Golden Motor HPM3000B 20mm shaft with a key.
The next major step will be doing to wiring diagrams and systems. I would like to use a DC-DC converter to run 12 Volt headlights and signals. The end goal is to be able to use this on the road in Washington State as a moped with a license plate. I realize that this frame is very heavy compared to new efficient aluminum design, lighter rims and lighter weight forks. I do not have access to frame fabrication equipment, so I decided to do a conversion. I estimate roughly that this will have a very limited range, due to vehicle weight. Also making it road legal may not be possible. I am really enjoying the build so far.
