um 50? so 5000w.....but i have a 3 speed switch so i guess i will likely use the 2nd speed for most ridingTimma2500 wrote:What sort of amps are you planning on running through it?

I want to use the long 6s packs, so no, but I think another 5AH would....will re-evaluate once I work out how much range it has with ~1000whbriangv99 wrote:Would another 10ah fit in there?
I think it was all done by eye/measurement, No idea mate sorry, frame looks straight whichever method was used.teklektik wrote:Can you relate how you aligned the original sectioned frame components
Yeah just as Roger said, just by eye and measuring. Basically i cut out all the flat sheet parts, bend where needed, tack weld it together as per pics, check alignment then weld the box up. Next is cutting the original frame to suit the box shape, tack weld it to the box, check alignment and start welding it up while re-checking alignment as i go. If it moves slightly, i'll weld it accordingly to help pull it in the direction i need. No real gotcha's in the technique used, just keeping the seat tube/BB and head tube straight can be tricky. My 1st bike (the Norco) was out of alignment but it wasn't noticable while riding.rodgah wrote:teklektik wrote:Can you relate how you aligned the original sectioned frame components

The torque arms turned out nicely, that thing won't be twisting at allrodgah wrote:update....posted pics of the torque arms and wheel mounted
Bugger, sorry Rodger, thats my fault. I haven't allowed you enough room where the box tapers outKepler wrote: Noticed you have a small chain ring fitted so high speed pedal assist is out as it stands.

Im not really into pedaling if im 100% honest, but my idea of gearing it this way is for just a slow cruise speed ~25km/h....I should be able to cruise all day with a bit of pedal assistance, and not impossible to pedal without assistance. The cluster confuses the matter, I actually intended on running a single speed freewheel but the chain line was horrible so the cluster solved it and you can see the fixed position derailleur.Kepler wrote:small chain ring
definitely looks right, doesnt feel wrong though I doubt I would know, thing feels like a dirtbike with pedals with the 3" tyres, stuff the missus its mine hahahaha. Definitely a sweet pair of forks, so plush, makes peddling hard a bit ridiculous though.Timma2500 wrote:happy with the head angle?
doesnt matter, the only times I would try to pedal would be up a steep hill or cruising along slowly(along the esplanade ) if I was more serious I could put a proper derailleur on it.Timma2500 wrote:thats my fault
Agreed and seconded.Trackman417 wrote:Wow
That's a great looking bike man. Do you plan on keeping it the same color as the original frame? Could you post some pics of the batteries inside the frame?
You and Timma should start some sort of business up. It would be killer to have people send in there bike frames and you just tack a box into it.
