View Full Version : We made an electric 50 pitbike for fun in a few days.

Monday this was a gas bike with a 50cc engine in it. Friday it's a ripping electric pitbike with ~40hp (we will dyno when we replace the rear tire).

This was just 2 guys spending an hour after work each day to do the conversion. It was amazing, the little 50cc chassis seemed like the electric motor was just made to bolt right into place, only needed to make 2 custom mounts, make mounts for the Sevon gen4, and some straps for the Nano-Tech 104v pack.

Seriously a 4hr conversion for 2 guys to build the whole bike, I barely put in 2hours of my own work.

Enjoy!
