This is a list of the different Vehicles that we have created.
TS-E: This bike was built on the Suzuki TS enduro platform. Jeremiah's first electric build. Mars motor, 48v10ah Lifebatt pack, with a Kelly controller.
EBR: Version 1- This bike was built with an old '88 Honda Hurricane CBR 600F1 we had laying around. We originally designed it as a commuter bike with a range of about 6 miles and a top speed of 30mph. The commute route was 3 miles in each direction, on surface roads with top speeds of 25mph, and opportunity charging at both destinations. We built it with a Mars motor, Kelly controller, and four 12 volt/50 amp hour Lead Acid Batteries (SLAs). We did some testing with different gearing and got it up to 35mph with about the same acceleration. This who.e build was done in Jay's carport.
Version 2-After getting a couple of AgniMotors for a race bike project that we are working on, we swapped out the motor for one of the AgniMotors, instantly 45mph. Awesome motor! This bike turned into a test bed bike, so we haven't done too much work on getting all the lights and everything working for getting it registered for road use. We will be getting that soon.
Version 3- Be-Ev.Com worked a deal out for some conversion components and got some new lithium batteies in the deal. We swapped out the 4 heavy SLAs for the 85 volt 40 amp hour EIG batteries. We were so excited about the new batteries that we just threw them into the build and went out to test it. Instant 65 mph! Very fun bike. We also got another Mars motor in the deal, so we are now also putting that in the bike so that we can use the AgniMotor for it's original purpose in a race bike.
kanEtuna: This is a project in the works. The donor bike is a '90 Suzuki Katana 600. We orignially were going to put an AgniMotor into this build, but after ordering the custom rear sprocket, we realized that it was too large to fit into the swingarm. We were so excited to get the project started that we ordered the sprocket before noticing that the Katana swing arm radically curves in towards center. So we are talking with EnerTrac to make this the next test bike for their new hub motor.
Raleigh ebike: This bike was commision for BeFit4Riding.Com. It was built on a Raleigh 24" framed cruiser bike. We used a 9 continents motor kit and a 48v10ah LiFePo4 battery pack. Working on making a custom LED headlight for it at the moment. We are working with BeFit4Riding.Com to temporarily use this bike as a demo bike for people new to ebikes and want to 'check it out' and give them their first EV Grin! After a few test rides, we found that for the everyday lay person trying an ebike for the first time, it was prudent to switch the full grip throttle to a thumb throttle. Bike off sounds exactly the same as bike on, and we had a couple of people accidently twist the throttle after getting off the bike and trying to move it around. That bike can wheelie!!!! We put a cycle analyst on it and clocked a top speed of 31mph!!
Phat Chopper:We got this bike as part of a multi vehicle deal involving a few boats. It is a chopper style bike from Phat, with enormous ape hanger handle bars. We got a 9 continents front hub motor kit with 36 volt 22 amp controller. We used a 48v10ah LifePO4 battery. We also insatlled a Cycle Analyst data system. Since Jay will be the primary rider with this bike, we were able to go back to a full grip throttle. We have a few modifications that we are still planning for this build. Check back for updated versions soon.
