Well, the lump of a motor sitting in the of my garage, my thoughts turned to (as it [the engine] was practically What a shame, I thought, I am about to chuck away a good, modern, constant speed, lightweight gearbox integrated with the engine) and searching for some expensive item off a BSA or summat, when it to me that maybe it could be intact with a bit of luck and that’s just what I

I disassembled the engine, removed the primary chain, then the gearbox case off of the main casing. By removing the clutch I a splined input shaft a final drive front fitted straight onto.

I reassembled the layshafts in their order (even still had the indicator available) A single of stainless steel plated the and (this isn’t shown) an oil seal (I found that the would’t change rear it was filled with oil) to the shaft. The outer part of the engaged with a suitably hole in the plate I mounted the on, and I had myself a gearbox! solved my drive ‘connection’ problem as it bolts straight in and connects to the final drive chain. I I did have to fill it with or it wouldn’t change gear — this did make more difficult,

Latest Pictures half the batteries taken off

in May 2005. The controller I am using was as a 48v controller. I was mildly surprised to that I needed to supply the 48v as two strings of 24v. When the overload situation became I wondered if I could take one of batteries off, and connect the 24v to both ends of the controller without blowing anything up. It

Quite nimble now, but range of course.

I have both of the 24v chargers to my one pair of — it will charge as fast now.

Spent an afternoon going up and down the road. Chain thrash loud — no I.C.E to it out!
