Man that bike looks great. Hoping things start going better for you. Need some good pics of it!Thank you man! What battery/motor/controller?
22hp means you’re gonna have at least $2000 into it before you even start the build... believe me when I say this, just go get yourself an EEB frame. I think the eeb can be had for less than $400 and it is way more efficient than building your own. Even at this point in my project I’m still considering it. Probably the next big fuckup I have, is gonna motivate me to cut my losses and buy it. I’ve already spent $300 on frame building metal and fiberglass alone not including welding wire, grinder wheels, and about 30-40hrs.
I don’t like the dirt bike look but hey, it’s all cut out with one of those frames. Easier than a CG build. But not gonna look as good as this. My thing is vintage American Schwinns so I guess I’m just stupid.
See custom battery enclosure thread on ES should give ya some ideas.
