    Very well done.

    You have been busy! How much clearance will you have?

    with the new tire it will have four inch clearance, it sets pretty low now, it almost looks like a rocket sled...

    after i get the tire mounted i'll take a picture of it...

    im also gonna order these batteries today... this was a hard decision, since i know so little about the lithium battery, but i need to learn and best way is to have some and see what they can do...

    another update

    the frame is set up for the motorcycle wheel and the larger motor...

    gears and chain are on the way and the first four lithium batteries from Manzanita's...

    http://www.manzanitamicro.com/produc...id=29&vmcchk=1

    only 12 more batteries to go, then the hardware needed to maintain them...

    the tire is S rated and mounted...

    I'll help ya, I work for them, and specialize in Headways (I have 200 of my own).

    What kind of pack are you building? How many cells? Peak discharge? volts?

    Let me know

    Looks much better with that wheel/tire combo. The bike sits nice and level. It should be a fun ride!

    sorry i havent been around in a while - im chewing fingernails right now...

    Ed is helping me with a layout - but in answer to your question, im going with 32 of cells which should produce 400 amps, but i will be testing with 16 cells to make sure everything is wired right at 200 amps...

    its my first time using lithiums so im gonna be on the edge with them, very very careful like... but if you hear the fire department running to my house you'll know what happened...
