IT'S ALIVE!!!!

Yes finally I was able to drive this thing and it actually seems to work exactly as planned, imagine that! Great low end torque, decent top speed around 20mph, (frankly faster than I need in the woods), no smoke, and only the whir of the electric motor and chains. Still some work to do before it's water ready, but this thing is really cool! So much nicer than the old 2 stroke that was in it. Pictures and video to follow soon.

This thing looks great, fantastic job.

How long will it go on a charge?

Is there a page with a description of what you've done that I'm missing?

It goes between 1/2 hour to an hour, depending on how I'm using it. If you click on the Blog Archive links starting with February you can follow the whole build process. I'll be glad to answer any other questions.
