Thx and yes i did mention it before, just thought it would be nice to share and document it in its own threadhjns wrote:Very nice kitten, I think you mentioned it in another thread as well.
I just started with a Big Hit build myself, slightly bigger motor, though.

Your not worried about the strength of the frame? Looks exciting if it holds up. How wide is the frame? enough for 6cm lipo?
Thats awsome Matt, at least you can convert it back to a normal bike if needs beLussy wrote:Deffx,
Finally finished my build (nearly). Didn't end up welding to the frame but used epoxy to attach a alloy box.
Bighits are a good donor bike.

I got the frame cheap, but building it up is going to cost $iovaykind wrote:That thread with the Norco would be mine Good to see it inspired you. After riding the ebike for quite awhile, and taking it off curbs and small jumps.. I have to say that even with the two panels taken out, it didn't feel like there were any issues whatsoever. That being said, I think if I were to do it all over again, I wouldn't. It really was a lot of work to get all the batteries and controller in there. What makes it worse is that once its all done, I didn't have access to the guts. If a cell were to go bad, I would be stuck with really no solution. Hope you can figure out a way to fix the issues I encountered.
Anyway, I long sold that bike and made a good profit off of it Happy ebiking and be safe!
Yes no problems here either, fingers crossed, touch wood,Bill Nye the science guy wrote:My welded frame has taken a good beating without any problems, no heat treating. a machinist told me that a quelch in water will harden the aluminium. the aluminium welded on is alot thicker than the thin light weight tubing of the original frame. I haven"t let my bike do any ghost rides down any hills but I throw it into alot of rocky areas. my opinion is heat treat is a non issue as long as the whole frame doesnt reach a very high temp while welding.
Bikes look awesome. vids always appreciated.
