This is my 3rd build. Another lightweight single motor topmount kicktail cruiser. I sourced most the parts from forum members.
I love the Loaded cantellated tesseract and randomly found a good deal on ebay.

Fresh carbon vinyl wrap
First time using wood inserts. It’s kinda tough taking a drill to such a nice deck. I used a dab of gorilla glue when inserting. They seem strong, we’ll see.
Been looking forward to testing these wheels, gotta good reputation. Will report back.
Enclosure from @fottaz is well made.
Picked up a Focbox and Nano-x on cyber Monday. I have zero experience with a Vesc. I have used the 12s 120a esc on previous builds with no complaints. I was slightly intimidated by the Vesc, but it wasn’t hard at all.
I’m using a panel mount bullet connector on the enclosure. Here’s a thread on the product: https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/panel-mount-bullet-connector/3294
I used Sugru to secure the connector from inside the enclosure. First time using Sugru, it’s a really cool product. I made a toothbrush holder with the excess.
With white zealous it would have been perfect, the board is georgous the green bearing is the killing detail IMO
Great job the board is sleek af
Looks amazing. What was your original esc, the 12s 120a (make/model)?
It’s the 12s esc that sells. I think it’s also branded as sleeping lion. I’ve seen it mostly used on mountain board builds.
The vesc was new when I started my first build and the 12s esc was available. I didn’t have any complaints with it, so I used it again on my second build. Really looking forward to testing the vesc this time.
Love this - really clean, great build
Very nice build!
I would recommend covering these better to avoid arcing and shorting phase wires.
This is almost the same build I am doing at the moment! Love the Tessy as well
What risers do you use?
And why do you need a extra layer of carbon?
I want to see your toothbrush holder…lol! sleek looking build!
Good looking build. Give the pooch a scratch for me and tell him he’s a good boy
What risers do you use?
I still have wheelbites with 1/2" risers while using 44° Caliber and 90mm Flywheels.
I’m only using 1/8" shock risers, no bite yet. May bump it up to 1/4" if needed.
The carbon vinyl is purely for aesthetics.
Thanks! I’ll definitely add some protection to those.
Wow!! Even at standstill?
I don’t want to test for wheelbites while driving…
I like it man, I like that 5.5mm port too!!! So clean
About the inserts you put them from below, never saw that. Doesn’t get loose when you unscrew the enclosure?
He gorilla glued them in.
this is more impressive than the build
lol I hope not. The build took like 100x longer
