Im making a custom light for front and back with leds from hydroponic grow light suplyer from ebay. for the front i will have 2 rows of 5 in series switchable indipended for low/hi beam (narow/wide) using 10º, 22º, 45º reflectors.
powered by mains smitchmode plug packs.
Battery compartment will be made from 120mm x 120mm x2mm channel section welded open side down into the down tube. the frame is steel and weldable with arc. ill remove a significant portion to fit this box in and will be a moderately laborious task, however it should increase the frame strength if do it correctly. some triangle pieces will be added at the ends to hold the shape of the box under stress (so it doesnt stretch out) . bottom side will be hinged at front and a number of latches and or bolts will hold it closed.
front steer tube is bigger than standard and frame needs to be modded there to. long story short; i got the wrong forks for the frame, but they are awsome and were cheap- so the frame gets modded. need tube and bearings, both have been sorted, bearings are on there way but $70 later :/ ... should see a top speed of 65kph but the torque off the line will be 175nm and peak power output at 40kph is 2.5kw (aprox) making it about the same as a 160cc pit bike in peak power output.(they are like mini dirt bikes)
ill be getting a ca v3 to help controll the power and smooth out the throttle.
probly use black epoxy paint. not a great finish but very hardy, and might cover up my shity welding.
still have to upgrade front wheel and get 203mm disk brake for it. and head stem and bar.
should be an interesting "experiment"
please give advice or ask questions....
