nice project.

I've been toying with the idea of building my own electric moto. Even got a spare rolling chassis waiting...
But it's a slightly larger frame intended to perhaps hold more battery packs and potentially hit the road for dual sports but longer range is like the electric vehicle holy grail... there's always a weight and cost compromise!

How are you dealing with the waterproofing?
I noticed you tiptoed around those mud puddles last year in the video...
Obviously the controllers and such need protection, but what about the motor?
Is a brushed motor more susceptible to moisture damage?

keep up the good work!
I'm so excited to start mine...
