And since it's a chopper, go with the motor you like the looks of. Frankly, I think a big DD motor out frt. would look silly.
Either motor will handle the speeds you are looking for.
Thanks for that. SLA's are definitely on the plans in the very near future. Just trying to get it functional sooner than later haha.
Its lost money in the end, as they are just lead bricks but it would be good to run some tests with.
I've seen some pics with a DD motor installed and its quite a futuristic look, it looks better than I thought. Its very Blade Runner/Fifth Element especially with the shiny black/silver effect.
I ended up upgrading to a 48v 500w system which should have a bit of extra poke. I'm still working on a suitable torque arm to suit. I will try contact the bike manufacturer to find out what materials were used for the dropouts.
I just bought a 36v charger doh. I'll need to get another one now lol
Thank you all
