Electric Reaper | Never summer Reaper 2016 | TB218mm | Dual BKB 6374 190KV | Focbox

Been researching and planning on building an electric skateboard since beginning of last year. Original idea was I wanted something stealth with long range but I slowly got more and more carried away and ended up with this.

I wanted to try document parts and total cost as best I could to help highlight how quickly everything adds up and how expensive building a electric board can be with quality parts. So I have added almost everything I have purchased for this build not including the price of tools like a spot welder for making the battery or soldering iron.

I have only just gotten everything togethe and not even taken it for a ride and already wanting to change things.
I got distracted from my original idea of a stealth board that is almost indistinguishable from a regular longboard, So have already purchased some Carvon V4 speeddrives to replace the whole back end with.

Guess not ā€¦

And want to replace the deck with a Hyper Beast deck by @NAF, or any kind of similar style sealed bottom deck for a more regular longboard look if I can find any.

Still have a small details to finish. I did want to channel the deck and run the motor wires through, but now that I want a new deck and carvons/quality hub motors Iā€™m waiting before I do too much more work in case I change it all.


I loved my never summer Reaper, such a beautiful deck.
