Default Re: fall from grace

its the trike in the avatar but with a hub motor. I like the hub motor okay but you actually get more torque and speed running a scooter motor without a controller. It allows the motor to take full advantage of the battery voltage. The controller somehow doesn't put out as much. That way I had the solenoid and direct connections to the motor. Wish I could have figured a way to save the drive wheels rubber and still got the power.

By the way I have a 2hp gasoline generator puts out 900 watts of ac current. Will run a battery charger so I can run it while I fish if they won't let me hook to the city power at the lake. Of if I go somewhere without power.

Like the guy who blames me I blame you Norman for adding the last five years to my life and the fifteen more. You were my mentor and I appreciate all your help.

Deacon,
I'm glad as well to hear that you are in good health and still riding. We are all making concession to old age and the people around us.

Very nice trike and as you say the benefit is that it can carry sla batteries. Please keep in touch with us.

Steve.
