Default Re: Hello from Texas

The motor, batteries, and cycleanalyst ran me 2k. if I had another 250 at the time I would have gone for the 20AH battery. Probably upgrade to it in like 3 years.
Its an investment, but keeping up with it is easy as making sure the rest of the bike is up to snuff. eventually the batteries will need replacing, but that shouldn't be for a while.
Right now its quite nice seeing my project come together, I wish it was done already but bit by bit I'm seeing it get closer to what I'm envisioning. Some day there may be a sidecar attached to my bike

welcome fellow Texan, Im partial myself to the dax F80/GenIV 40mm stroke engines, I have others and am currently tinkering with an ebay kit with what some are calling a Half Breed engine.

The GenIV engi es have the best balanced cranks of any of the engines Ive run, not hard to make a omfortable 40mph cruiser with them and their have good quality bearings.

Im not I to the electric stuff myself and probably never will be until I need one of those mobility scooters...!

Batteries will never reace internal combustion engines but for people who dont ride long distance and live in the city they're great.

Ill take the engines myself and if you go that way I'll tell you that I dont think you would regret the dax 40mm stroke engine.

There may be other s as good but the ones dax sells are the best Ive used.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
