Love it!

What is the reason for the swingarms to be constructed of two sections?

Front end kind of resembles a Jeep. 8)
4wd would be awesome. I would put a handicapped sign and slow moving vehicle triangle on the back and call it a mobility scooter. :D

Hi guys,

construction of EV4 Mountain Cart is designed to be as tought as it can be so for example we made swingarms from two separate elements so it can last longer and endure a lot more.

Yes it does look like a Jeep a little bit, didnt notice it earlier ;) Haha cheers.

Btw. Mountain Cart will be ready for sale this week we finished testing it, so if you are interested contact me by PW.

I've got a few questions, hopefully you can answer them.
Are you using for each motor one 36V battery or are you using the 72V combined for both?
What is your market for this? Because it's not anymore a bike so you can't really drive it anywhere without huge costs for registration, TÜV, etc.
It looks definitely very cool and solid as a rock, do you consider selling some type of enclosuure too? It would be perfectly designed for that and you wouldn't get wet anymore.

Beautifully constructed. Looks comfortable to drive. Some parts connected with rivets, looks nice, CNCed parts... Like constructor. That is a beautiful piece of machinery.
