Sweet... but what is it for?
I have Rheumatoid Arthritis in my ankles. It is for getting around job sites. Plus it is faster than I could ever walk. And light enough to pick up and put in my truck.
Had time today to install the brake. Fabbed a mount, everything else pretty much bolted together. The battery packs work fine. I have been zipping around the shop all week, they are still at 75%.
Wow! Just wow.
can we get a video of you shredding this thing yet or what?
maybe some parking lot slalom
Working on building a carrier for it, and a twist or two for it to be done. I'll post up some more pics. Been way busy resurrecting a Genie boom lift the boss dragged in from somewhere, while simultaneously engineering the installation of a 160 ton chiller. Maybe some progress this weekend. Did I mention I HATE hydraulic oil? I HATE hydraulic oil. And old cylinder shaft seals, and old degraded hoses. When I get done with the lift, I'm going to melt my pin spanners into a paperweight. But I did enjoy firing up the old West Bend lathe to make some pins and bushings. Did I mention how much I HATE hydraulic oil?
RA is treatable if you know how, it worked for me and it's cheap, a kilo costs $5 and you only need a teaspoon full.
Never heard of that before. I'll run it past my nephrologist first though. Unfortunately the RA is not my only problem.
Carrier mock up. Still need to find the center of gravity. Hold down latch/lock still in development. Something different is going sportier.
I finished up welding the carrier. Found that it needs a slight length adjustment. Otherwise it is what I wanted. It is very easy to load. Put front wheel in place and pick up the rear and set it in place. I will get the retention figured out and shorten it up. Does not block the license plate of tail lights. I plan on adding some running lights because I have some laying around. I went with the sport seat and Harbor freight mini trunk option. I used it on a job site the other day, and it worked fine. After I get it completely sorted, it will get powder coated. The camo seat is going on my fishing paddle board. It was the first one ever registered in Florida to legally use a trolling motor.
My oil spewing nemesis is in the background. Hope to have that one sorted and out of the way this week. Waiting on a seal kit and some hoses.
Very nice set up
Pic of the hold down system. The springs are spares I had from a stock KZ-900 clutch. Pic in the wild at the store today. I stopped at Lowes and got some knobs to go on the threaded rods.
Finished up the carrier yesterday. Dropped it off at the powder coat shop this morning. They are busy, said it will take a week. Booooo! I told them Fast Idle can restore two motorcycles from rust to better than new in that time frame. Pics when it comes back coated. Otherwise, it is finished. Of course with me, nothing is really finished as long as I have it.
Isn't that the truth.
Stuff is never finished until you sell it.
The scooter is a keeper. It is completely unique!
Got the carrier back from powder coat. They did a really good job. The scooter is really easy to load. Took it shopping. Had three people ask where I bought it.
lookin' good... all it needs is a titanium milk crate.
I had said it only takes a couple of minutes to unload. Yesterday I started the timer, put the phone in the cup holder, unloaded it, sat on the seat and stopped the timer. Took 43 seconds. I am working on a quicker cam lock version of hold down. The project is pretty much wound up though. Maybe some incremental advances as stuff needs to be adjusted, etc.
work on your wheelies....
