My first chooper was all my own work. Which proved to me that I am crap at welding. So I called in a favour, exchanged a few professional services and managed to enlist a local engineering company to my cause. To be honest it didn't take much after they all had a ride on my first bike
EV Grin's all round.
They convinced me, it didn't take much, that people would buy the finished bikes, so they have looked at my little project from a future production model prospective. Therefore, they chose to use available tooling, 25mm pipe bender and simple techniques to build up the frame in a rather organic way. No plans, just my free hand sketch and some basic steering (rake and trail) rules. Then try and see what each component looks like when positioned in relation to the wheels and forks. If it's good, keep it, if not, try again.
The drive train is a Puma, 35A C'lyte controller, CycleAnaylist and 36V 20Ah LiFePO4 from China (To be replaced by LiFeBATT when production allows).
Here are a few early picks.
