    1st atempt at this and after the test drive i am itching to build more.
    Will need a flat black rat rod and a hugger orange one next...now how will i power the next one...leaning towards a GEBE system with a Honda 4 sroke.

    I have a battery bag being made from black leather...temporarly they are zip tied and taped on to see how it would work...the balance feels great.

    A great looking machine!

    And it looks like that stretched frame is just made for carrying batteries.

    No speedo yet and only been thru 3 charges and it seems to be getting better...i woulg guess about 20 mph according to the traffic with almost 300 lbs of dead weight/rider.
    Handles great with the weight distributed front to back.

    Sweet ride! Was it a kit or is it homebuilt minus the hub?

    It would be neat if you could hide the Batt pack behind some sheet metal.

    now that really like.

    What would make that perfect is getting a battery pack that fits up in the 'tank area' and then a HT engine/genset setup in the usual position (theres enough space after all) - would make a wonderfully attractive hybrid.

    I wish the batteries would have fit in there...i wanted to build a gas tank appearing cover.
    What would be the options available and aprox costs of the packs...36 volt now?
