OK. Took your advice and started on my trike. Some stuff i got laying around so i have knocked up a frame. I found a mini bike fork in the trash and made it to suit part of the frame i also salvaged from the dumpster. I had some tubing so my progress is good:
I had 24 cells of A123's but 3 went duds, so i salvaged 16 good ones to make 48V pack with few spares. i still need to weld aluminium box and make a cover but all in all its going good. Tomorrow i am going to pick up 1kW front motor and 40A controller + thumb throttle and charger, i guess for this contraption thumb should be better, what ya think?! I will lace up the motor in Alex Rims DX32 20" and have a hookworm mounted as i have spares of them. Have a Tektro comp disc brake at hand, so will use it.
I still need to source 2 go kart wheels cause i like the way they look on these trikes but which ones are best to get? I was going for Jets at 130mm wide with 17mm axle bearings. Good stuff
The wheelbase is 1100mm, the width at the rear will be 1000mm and headtube angle is something like 20*-25* from vertical. Any errors i made here?
I cant source a decent seat for little money, but i think i can make on myself, something like OCD has, will get some use of the sawing machine i have
Thats about it
