Have the same interest here. Still just in the "thinking about" phase.
Based on what I've seen out there, you really need to go with six 6V
batteries for longer range. I have a Honda 750 and I want to try to mount 4
upfront where the engine was and 2 in the back like saddlebags. I have one
hot tip for you though Wilde Evolutions has some 4QD motor controllers at a
good price, I think it was $325. They support regenerative braking and are

drive motor speed
07/04/00 06:31 PM
Does any one know the max RPM of the drive motor on an E-15. I am playing
around with the idea of making an electric motorcycle out of some of my
spare Elec-Trak parts. I have never worked with electic vehicles before,
other than my E-15. Based on the tire size and gear ratio of the bike I
have laying around (Honda cx500 Turbo, shaft drive), I would need 3000 rpm
to go 70 mph. Would the motor have enough power to push it? I would
estimate the loaded weight to be around 950 pounds, using 3 12V batteries.
Could I get a 25 mile range out of it? If anyone has worked on a electric
cycle and would like to share info, you can email me direct.
