    So the father/son project is at a stand still. It will have to be finish at some point because there are too many parts of the original scooter that have been sold to consider rebuilding it as...

    We are seriously considering making the battery box out of 16 or 18 gauge sheet metal and stripping the Leaf modules of their aluminum covers and most of their black padding. This would make the...

    Where do you live? Ever try to ride a motorcycle in the rain day after day? Or how about extreme cold and snow? Commuting with a two wheeled vehicle should not be just for people in warmer climates...

    I did not see your conversion before but I did now. Super nice and big scooter. The one we decided to convert presents some challenges to find room for a big battery and controller. Those pics I...

    I thought of making a prototype of the swingarm so we were busy today making it out of scrap pieces of wood. I don't have CAD software or the knowledge to use it so trying to figure everything out in...

    With more than a thousand dollars of our budget that disappeared for other house related things and the parts not selling on ebay, this project is not going anywhere anytime soon. We are disappointed...

    Thanks Nando,

    But there is no rush at all, I was hoping to get some money back selling all the bits and pieces of the scooter we won't need. But it looks like Canada Post is getting ready to...

  10. My son was not interested in spending a whole day...

    My son was not interested in spending a whole day helping me figure out how to make the swingarm lol. So I had to try to come up with something by myself. I'm not an engineer but I think I'm getting...

    Thanks Nando, after some more discussion with Vito at QS Motors, the order was changed for the controller. I bought an APT Sine Wave FOC AE96600 Controller. In the meantime, the scooter is in pieces....

    I have been talking by email with Vito Ho at Taizhou Quanshun Motor Co. They make the QS Motors. Vito suggested a 13''X3.5'' 8KW 273 50H V3 motor with a Kelly KLS96601-8080I controller. So this was...

    We started tearing down the scooter, I am enjoying drinking wine while my kid sweats and remembers ''lefty loosy''. lol. One thing bothers me though, I am having the hardest time trying to find a 12...

    We are planning and planning and planning. I am a little worried at how tight the batteries fit in the chassis, I see from the plans we made that we might have to put a couple divots in the chassis...

    The adventure begins. I wish I could change the title of the thread. I took possession of a 2007 Yamaha Vino 125cc today. It is pretty clean, it's blue and runs great but the performance is pathetic....

    I looked at Vectrix many times, but I've read reports from people in Canada who had Vectrix bikes and could not register them. I read from a particular person who had two of them for sale because of...

    Something killed this project :mad: Insurance! The best quote I got was half of what I pay for car insurance, home insurance and life insurance combined. Sometimes life sucks. So now I am looking for...

    I hope I can make it happen, right now, all I have is $3400, I figure I need an extra $2000 to make it happen. :(

    Thanks Hughes,

    My Leafs stay within a couple degrees from ambient temperature pretty much all the time, and the voltage has not gone below the nominal 3.7V per cell. Although I don't pull as much...

    We sat down last night and made a short list of what we would need to build this project and how much money would be involved. :O It sure ads up quickly.

    Honda PCX 150 - $1400 (estimate, can be...

    Thank you Spoonman,

    You make a good point about thermal mass, the idea of stripping the Leafs was only if it absolutely becomes necessary to make them fit, but if they fit with their casing on...

    The kid and I had a good discussion on our options. We are still considering the Honda PCX 150 for the conversion. But we did come to more realistic expectations for range considering the scooter is...

    Thanks Spoonman.

    I've been going back and forth between a scoot or a larger motorcycle for weeks and even though I said the decision came down to a Honda PCX 150, I am still open to discussions....
  25. Father /son project - Was Honda PCX 150 but changed to Yamaha YJ125 Vino

    My son Gabriel will turn 12 in a couple days. He is not a sports fan, he is not really a team player. He is more of a nerdy kind of a little guy. We tried for years to get him interested in all kinds...
