Some update guys, during the last 10 days I bought a Shit load of parts, from new blinkers… to a 3000 W motor !
Basically it’s the list :
1.72v 3000w hub motor with 17"x1.60 rim
2.sabvoton controller 72v 60A ( fully programmable , comes with Bluetooth )
4.brake lever with regenerative braking
5. 3,5 inch display for all speed, odometer, lights… Etc
6. DC/DC converter 72 V to 12V
7. Some stealthier blinkers, head and tail light with led
8. stealthier mirrors
9. Feet resting bars
10. Disc brakes for my back wheel since I will have a hub motor the original brakes won’t work
Everything is ordered !
I have as well tought a lot about the design I would use. First I thought I would use the tank as a battery. But it cannot have enough batteries inside. I decided to change the design radically and modify the frame, then I’ll sand everything and finish the parts with thermo epoxy paint. Pure Shiny black.
Unfortunately I have no Photoshop skills so the results will talk by themselves when the project will be done
The plan is to transform this moped to a motorcycle looking vehicle kind of like so
I will as well weld some side panels on each side with 1,5 mm thick steel with nickel treatment to avoid corrosion , cut these plates as I wan’t to seal the whole body to place safely my huge battery and electronics.
I have to create a removeable panel on one side to have an easy access on everything but I’m not sure how to do that yet, I 'll find a solution sooner or later
Over these panels I will use as decoration some veneer design with some very tiny layers so it’s not too heavy or too thick, gonna look awesome with pure epoxy black
The battery will be wether a 14S15P 50.4 V or a 20S11P 72V
I’m not sure yet. Will be a question of what is the speed I’ll get with what voltage , can the mathematicians of the forum help on this ? I can provide lot of info and measurements but I’m not the best at maths !
One thing is sure tho the battery will fit easily, 220 cells of Samsung 29E 2900A. They’re cheap and very good for big very large battery packs. Of course there’s better but I don’t wan’t to spend 1200 euros on cells alone ( CF/ RIP Sanyo cells for me )
But I decided not to go cheap on this build in the end I kinda wan’t to surpass myself on this one and make the best build I can make at the moment. And caring about all the details.
So I will restore every single screw of this old thing to give it a new life and live the Pinnacle of our little electric revolution.
I have already this summer did a similar build while doing my Carvon V4 esk8 it way waaaaaaaay more cheap but working very well so far. The problem is that it has a lot of inefficiency in almost all it’s parts so I don’t have a great range and the build is not very well finished
A quick snap of this one :
As always if you have any question or suggestions help yourself
I hope you enjoyed the read as much as I am enjoying building this one haha
