    New Top Speed Set (Downhill) 60 mph

    I knew this motor could do it... it was on a long gradual downhill a few miles from my house.

    (different than in the video)

    The bike in the video is homemade and looks like this:


    ...I'm using a few more NiCads (the gray tubes) but otherwise it's roughly the same bike.

    I'm nearing 6,500 miles on the bike overall... it has been a good build.

    (built in the summer of 2006)

    My avatar is of my next project, which is not yet operational.


    The motor is only a 500 Watt Unite, but I've done a complete Rewind of the motor and you can read about it here:


    ...I'm pulling 1400 Watts out of a 500 watt motor. :idea:
