Lightweight Chopper Al 6061

Hello from European Union!

I have built a light weight chopper prototype.
It has 400w brushless motor and 2x40A sealed
batterys and quiet belt drive. I reach 30km/h
Which is enough but not too much to waist batteryes.

The prototype might be even for sale. It needs inprovements.
It has build using quality materials and bicycle parts.
To goal was to build as simple and as light as possible but
nice to drive on bicycle roads.
It is also very exiting to drive on public roads Image


Here is some pictures. Thanks

Hi Karl,

Welcome to the association.
2000E+shipping is $AUD3800+shipping which is alot of money for what your are proposing.
for that amount you can buy a factory built electric scooter that already passes local regulations, has 3500w and does 60kmh, then modify it with lithium for 5000w and 70kmh.
You may find interest to be a bit lacking, from Australia at least.

If you want to sell this bike, i would suggest using a site such as ebay, which has the facilities for such a transaction.

a moderators note:
While we do welcome vendors making themselves known (as long as its limited to one thread and doesnt fill the site with spam) The association doesn't endorse this vendor or his bike, however does welcome feedback and comments from those who have built or used one before.

2017 Renault zoe - 25'000km
2007 vectrix - 156'000km
1998 prius - needs Batt
1999 Prius - needs batt
2000 prius - has 200 x headway 38120 cells
