I sat around the house for too long this winter, and thought that it would be a good idea to get an old bike and convert it to electric. I found this 1980 Suzuki GS550E dirt cheap, and with a clear title. We threw it in the back of my friend's truck and drug it home. Everything seems to be there, except for the side covers, exhaust, clutch cable, and drive chain. Not that I really need very much of it, since I will be converting it to run on an electric motor. There are a couple of golf carts I am looking at, so I can get a motor and a control system all in one go. It is a much cheaper option than piecing out all those parts online individually. As soon as it is not below zero anymore, I'll be tearing this bike apart and putting all the combustion related parts on eBay. A 250cc dual sport with a sidecar didn't make me strange enough, so I thought I'd try DIY electric too!
