Discussion in 'Battle Scooters' started by Jarvis, Oct 2, 2005.
Out at the pub after a meeting. Not the best scenery but some good scoots. We had two new people wanting to join today. A good sign for the scene.
A little rural scooting for the holiday.
My pal Gary on his 250 SportCity and me on my Citycom 300i on the top of Pikes Peak last week.
I bet that was a great ride!
It was a great ride!
They currently won't let you ride to the top, as there is construction up there, making you take a shuttle.
After we came back down on the shuttle, my charming friend Gary asked the flag girl if we promised to come back down quickly could we ride to the top.
She said YES!
11 month project. Success.
She rides like a dream.
So what are your mods?
Hey MJS is that the electric bike you've been working on, looks good bud, need a ride report on the performance and miles you get from a charge.
So here is the list of upgrades that I applied to "Electra" over the course of the past 11 months:
Reverted to cable-operated throttle + remote Hall throttle body
ProGrip gel grips
Acerbis hand guards
Amber turn signals
Dual PIAA automotive sport horns with relay
13" aluminum front rim
110/90-13 Pirelli Diablo front tire
CNC kick stand
CNC swing arm
QSmotor 13" V4 8000W hub motor
150/70-13 Pirelli Diablo rear tire
Custom rear fender
Progressive rear shocks
APT AE96600 24fet controller
Custom 72V 57Ah battery pack with Anderson connectors
Waterproof junction box with power distribution, 12V & 72V fuses, 72V circuit breakers, DC-DC converters, high-current DC contactor, Zeva smart precharger, and PowerVelocity Bluetooth module
Rear stop light wing
Quickie report: it has noticeably faster acceleration and higher top speed than my (modified) 150cc scooter, which has now been sold. Not 100% sure of the range but I'm guessing 50-60mi at 45mph. Long-term goal is to build a bigger V2 battery to up that to 75-90mi. In the meantime I'm a happy camper. Love the silence. Also love the slow speed capabilities -- i.e. no problem driving the bike at 1mph or less.
And I almost forgot: I can still get a bag of groceries under the seat!
Great project bud, nicely done.
En Bordeaux, pays de Tmax
Took a day off this week to do a Northern Loop out through Hwy 2 (Stevens Pass) and back through Hwy 20 (Washington Pass, Rainy Pass).
Took a few pics so thought I'd post some.
A sneaky passenger ........................................
State of Washington. The Northern Loop variants generally go through Stevens Pass on Highway 2, & Highway 20 (north of 2) through a couple passes.
Of course north or south to the east & west of said passes depending on which way you're going. I was running counterclockwise that day.
