Ok I'll bite, what batteries?

Ideally I'm looking for a early to mid 80's 400-600cc import cruiser bike with a blown motor, chain drive, disc brakes and a ******* PINK SLIP. I figured I'd end up using some combination of cells salvaged from a Prius or something. That's the only way I figured I can get the capacity I need and weight down to where it won't overload the bike. I only need 20 miles worth of range but 55mph top speed at a minimum.

Electric commuter would be bauce.

Mine has drum brakes, and no pink slip. But it never had a pink slip so I can apply for a title.

I should have said at least a disc in the front, I know disc/disc was not exactly a thing in the 80's.

I'm never going to fight a pink slip battle again with the CA DMV. Its not worth my time and the aggravation. Unless of course the bike is exactly what I want, and very very cheap. As in nearly free.

Something like this would be almost perfect: https://monterey.craigslist.org/mcy/5287041574.html

Mine was free.

I called the OR DMV. And I need registration records for the VIN from WA, ID, NV, and CA in writing and then they can register it. I got all the paperwork needed. Then went to start it and it wouldn't start after sitting for a while.

Go buy that right now!

Mine is more of a dual sport.

I've been thinking about it, but I don't have the money in the slush fund right now. It's been posted for 17 days now so if it was going to sell it would have by now. If its still there at the end of the month I might go check it out. We'll see.

We need to start a gas to electric conversion thread when we get these projects off the ground, so Joe can come laugh at us.

Free brushed DC > brushless DC.

I don't expect this brushed motor to last long at all with this motor controller.

surely you know this, but the controller used has little to do with the longevity of the motor, but rather the voltage applied and the resulting current drawn from the motor that will kill it.

Remember how I don't know what mechanical (or is it electrical in this case) empathy?

I'm sure I can put around without killing the motor. But whats the point of a $3000 motor controller if you dont break things.

I lost track of who posted the Alltrax DCP motor controller which electric Jesus hates.

But I'm sure you'll make the same mistake.

Well, since you dismiss mechanical empathy, and your past history has shown you to be suicidally insane, there's always this:



It's lighter.
