Scootabot

Post by Emoto » Jan 27, 2018 4:40 am

Been Designing this one for a year now, researched all components , bought some parts , and then thought no ill do a kickbike.
But i think this scooter will be a lot cooler 8) more power full.. but of course a lot more fabrication / designing and a generally a bigger torture :| .
So here is the brief as of now.. full custom aluminum frame - with alloy mag wheels and custom alloy hubs with 13x 6.5 '' tyres
Reduction drive with big block inrunner type motor [ still to be decided ] and just to make it harder, BELT DRIVE for a more silent ride.
And to add to the quieter theme sine wave controller . And lipo
Let the build begin..

Thanks Gaffer i will.
Ive been in deep thought the last couple of days ,
One thing im going to change is the size of the 6 m5 hub bolts to m6 just for a bit of security.
Also playing with cad and plan on a custom alloy 44mm bcd to 5.1/4'' bcd hub to pulley adapter to mount kart toothed pulleys :)

And after doing all dimensional calks i was just about to start on the main frame fabrication [ no suspension] and thought bugger it i would really like some rear suspension to soak up those small vibrations , especially as im going to all this trouble may as well , its going to be real tight but about 4'' of travel should be ok . with a nice little rockshox air shock .

Design update..Looks like rear suspension is doable, which im super!! happy with / has to be comfy-ere :D -- ill have to take a hit on main frame size but should still be able to get 20ah of 60v, plus a controller and stagger the air shock on one of the swingarms arms.

The deck will be wide enough to stand both feet parallel facing forward [ cruising ] and ill have a kick plate at around 45 deg at the rear, so i can have one foot forward and other on the rear kick plate which will be a good solid stance for hard acceleration ect also covering the rear wheel like a mudguard .

Ive been struggling finding 30mm belt torque nm ratings, so i spoke to my local harley shop and they use 25mm on one of there nearly 2lt bikes
So thats good enough for me as my power should be around 8/10kw ... 30mm belt it is .will go over design this weekend and hope to start on main frame next week.
