" That jerk! I thought he was electric to the end! Actually if you watch to the end, you'll see that I am totally being over dramatic, but props to sam for getting a new bike!

NewZeroland gets a new bike, and it's petrol powered! "

" I live in MD USA. I saw another thread where they got these. They seem to be popular but I just wanted someoneís blessing before buying them since Iíve already bought one thing that Iím returning. I need to be more patient lol

Trying to scope out controllers now but need to do more research. Not really sure what I should be looking for tbh "

" Where are you located?
I have no experience dealing with Alibaba and have heard it can be sketchy, but Im in USA and haven't used that type of battery, so I cant really comment.
As far as lighting goes, plan on making a new 12 volt wire harness for all of the lights, horn and "ignition" switch. The 12 volt circuit will compliment and turn on the high voltage side of things.
The batteries can be the last thing you buy, but it helps to decide what to go with for trying to plan how to throw it all together in the frame.
I used Styrofoam and cardboard mock ups to try and design how to fit it. "

I'd be getting 7360 Wh instead of the 2520 Wh from the lead cells I just got. I would be buying 23 of them. "

You probably need to make a few more posts before the forum system is convinced that you are not a bot and will let you download photos from your computer files via the "Insert Image" icon. "

" I unwired pretty much everything today. Took the starter and ignition out and removed 99% of all the wires out of the bike. I left the brake cables of course. I was going to remove the lights as well but figured id leave them as is for now. Next Im gonna remove some of the visible rust off the frame. The batteries I ordered came in but I still want to return them for a better set of batteries like what was suggested. Motor should be in soon. I should be fine to start scoping out a controller, correct? "

" Here is an after image of the bike after i took the motor and everything off. Had to break the chain otherwise i would have had to take the rear wheel off to get the sprocket off. Took me about 2 hours total. Do I unwire the headlights and turn signals and all that? I assume I keep the brakes the same and untouched. To anyone else, would still love any input on where/what batteries to get. I had looked on atbatt.com but not sure where to begin. I wouldn't mind getting 3.2V batteries and connecting them all in series but not sure where to go from there. Do I look for the highest possible Watt-hours for lithiums?

" Be sure to add pics here! we all want to see your progress
I don't have a good battery source. I lucked out finding one right here on this forum.
Keep your eyes open for good deals, but the perfect battery doesn't exist yet,
It makes it a design challenge not knowing what's next, as far as shape, size, weight, voltage, etc...
my 2cents of advice to anyone starting a project like this is to enjoy learning every step
of the way. . I'm still learning too, and you probably can teach me something new with your build
We are all learning together! "

" Thanks for the reply. I asked the company for a refund and will be returning them. Do you have a site where I can buy good batteries? Willing to spend around 1200 ish on them. Price isnít a worry for me. I havenít yet decided on a controller. Was working on battery, then motor, then controller. I just need to find a good battery link "
