Here's some build pics for y'all! Strap on ya lobster bibs....
here's the mighty 24 fet lyen edition 4110 controller on the axiom rack:
The whole bike as it sits half disassembled (no swing arm, no wheels no batt cage...)
And I'm GUESSING this is how it's mounted, the awesome gatorbrake hydros. PS, how frikkin long is that rear hose, huh guys? I have a 9" rotor on the way so I'm guessing this isn't the last I'll see of this part.
The Battery Holder. 4 5ah 6s turnigy vertically on each side for about 1kwh, ok to start. It has accommodations for lvc bms, cell logs, another pair of bricks per side (15ah pack I can't afford any idea why?) for the future as well as rigid covers not shown. Also not shown is the rear aluminum strap, like the front one, that holds the whole shebang together. It's made of high impact poly.
Here's a pic of me standing on one without the benefit of the outside cover-
and finally: a singed, severed head screwed onto the rear rack. My dog showed up with it one day while I happened to be holding a screw and driver.
So thats fun to look at and all but here's the nitty gritty: Estimated weights, in order.
The chassis, forks, front brake, controller, shock, rack- the first pic- weigh 27 lbs
the motor- x5303-weighs 25 lbs
Batteries (14), Rack (4) and bms/wiring weigh 20 lbs
The tires, tubes and strips weigh 13 lbs
The wheels and spokes about 9 lbs
The modded swingarm will weigh about 5 lbs
The rear brakes and rotors, rear deraileur (no front) and chain weigh 3 lbs
Total Static Weight, Estimated: 102 lbs
Total Rotating Weight, Estimated: 48 lbs
I'm pretty sure thats an overestimate, but it's pretty grim. There's a lot of rotating mass there! With more spendy wheels, like Excels, and way lighter tires (or shaved gazelles), it'd be around 93 lbs. but that's certainly piggy (i'm 155 with helmet and gear) for a motorsports oriented bike. There is also a small bike pump and the scorched, chewed head in there- thats prolly 1.5. I'm also toying with the idea of cutting the pannier down a bit- for cosmetics (think supermotard) but that tubing doesn't weigh much. The seat is a heavy loaf, I have a carbon kevlar one but it's not as comfy. I'll likely trim 1-2 lbs off the cranks or make new ones, as well.
I think for the level of strength and roadworthyness this bike will have the weight isn't that bad for a streetbike.
