Here I will be continuously updating my build progress as more and more parts come in.
Here are links to all of the parts being used in this build…

Wheel Pulley: Still searching for a 38t kegel pulley but here is a 36t which will work
I am unsure about the battery enclosure and deck at this point, and was looking for help from the community. Being on the bigger side, (6ft 2, 220 lbs) I have a hard time finding longboard decks capable of supporting me without too much flex. I am worried the battery (19 inches long) will be subjected to flex depending on the deck I end up using. Is this an issue I should be concerned about?
I have this deck coming in the mail: https://electric-skateboard-parts.myshopify.com/collections/decks-1/products/bamboo-drop-through-deck
However I am interested in using a custom deck…
and need suggestions on a really stiff wood to protect the battery and enclosure from cracking. This, or suggestions for decks that are substaintially thick enough, 9 ply+
in the meantime check out this deck as a pre order which may work!!
