View Full Version : Hello from Connecticut

Hey everyone!

I just started my first ev project. I'm converting a 1980 Suzuki GS 450 into electric drive. I've been riding motorcycles for almost 5 years now and figured it's time to see what the electric motors have to offer. Originally I would have written these little powerhouses off, in favor of typical gas engines. However, after delving into the RC Car world a couple years back, I became a convert. I never realized how much torque you really get out of an electric motor.

I'm picking up my donor bike this weekend, so I've got a lot of research to do. I'll be poking around these forums and will ask a couple questions if I have any.
