    Some updates.

    I may use Headways for this build. I have a chance to get a bunch at a good price, so I'm testing them right now. Hoping to get enough to make a 72V/60Ah pack (144 cells). Still trying to figure out the BMS...

    Turns out, the series motor I was going to use will stick out right over the right foot peg. So I'm going with an ME1003. Since everyone's getting these fancy motor mounts, and I just got access to a CNC, I designed up my own spiffy ME1003 mount.

    NOTE: This design has been changed. See the updated design here.

    It's 1/2" 6061 plate. Dark areas are 1/4" recesses.

    Bolt holes are rotated so that the motor terminals will fit around the swingarm and frame. I'm using low-head socket caps, recessed to make room for the chain.




    Here's the CAD for CNC...the CNC takes vertex coords and then "blends" the corners. Convenient so you don't have to manuall program all the curves. I've got it all programmed up, just need to find time to do the milling.

    Mine's prettier.

    You gotta move the type/make it smaller so it doesn't hit/get overlapped by the bolt yo.

    ( I know... everybody's an Art Director)

    Just wait...I've got "plans".

    The outer holes are recesses, the bolt sits down inside so it won't overlap the text. Also, it looks like the text touches, but that's just because of the line thickness in the low rest image...in reality there's a gap.

    Nice mount Noah.
    Blue Anodizing would look killer with with the Headway batteries. Just sayin...

    If what I have in mind works, will not be anodizing.

    My first CNC project - success!

    This is "stage 1" of my motor mount.

    Stage 2-3 will hopefully get done this week, if I can find the time.




    Bolt holes are recesssed with low head socket caps to make room for the chain.

    I couldn't just rotate the bolts out of the way because of the way the motor terminals have to be positioned.
