Added you for speaking the truth about Global Blaming.
Hi Mike, The bike looks a something like you would have set up. I figure with all that speed potential in the various kits, you could get a motor with enough torque to cruise at 20-25 without draining the batteries. There has to be a happy middle ground, I would think that 1000W would be more than adequate, or maybe less I really don't know. Take care glen
btw heres a CL ad for 20 wheels, not sure if you needed them or not.
hows your build coming? ive put mine on hold.
Another thing you have had 535 visits, Wow that's more people than I ever known. You must be magnetic or just plain great. glen
I just read professor has not made any friends yet, well if that doesn't say it all. It's me, I thought I wrote your number, anyway I lost it or something. When you get time give me a call sometime, that should be easy after all it say's you have no friends "yet". Glen, It's friday 6:40 and real hot here. Take care Mike.
Happy, yes and no. Really, I just took off the engine and alternator off the Mongoose. Too much tail weight but it did work!
I am doing an in-frame for the components on a different frame that I streched. Now that I know it works, this next build is my winter (when I can ) project and will do pics when I get done.
I am using the HF 79 up front in the frame (took off the tank and muff.) the alternator (just got a 24v internal regulator for it) goes right below the engine. Yesterday I widened the crank so my feet will clear the engine and alt.
My plan is these components will supply 24 volts to charge the battery and supply current to run the e-motor. I got a controller and throttle coming, so it will act like a normal e-bike. Pretty big project though.
Do you have photos of your gas generator bike? I saw some cool military trucks from the 40's that had a diesel generator and electric all wheel drive with a motor at each wheel.
