    Hi there - new to EV life. Excited to see your project take shape. Wondering what torque / power / range figures you're aiming for / how comparable to the newer models Zero released etc.

    Torque: shooting for ~85 ft/lbs, Power ~50 hp, & range ~40-50 miles. I’m trying to hit about 60% of what a newer used Zero sells for, but for a little less $$ & learn along the way too.

    Great find!

    Agni brushes last about 2000 miles. Easy to inspect, just remove cover. You can buy new ones as I did last spring.

    I feel that I'm at a real cross-roads here. The battery would be the next thing to tackle (besides the chassis updates) and that would be my next major purchase.

    I live in the continental US's most-remote major city (Albuquerque) and the idiots with licenses around here make riding in the city about NO fun. So, most of my riding is outside the city so the distance it would take me to get out of town to where I like to ride is already exceeding a practical battery range. Even if I went with Tesla cells and built my own pack from them (a more expensive option than the 13x Leaf cells which top the list of options I'm considering), my expected range with them is only at ~100 miles.

    So, for me, for where I live and for the areas I like to ride in... I'm thinking my E-moto options are the new Zero SR with Battery Tank option, or petrol powered. If I end up with a petrol cycle, I'll likely part out or sell the entire project here to keep it going.

    Any thoughts or opinions are welcome.
