Solar Electric Bicycle

This bike has a powerful 1000 Watt motor, it has 4 batteries mounted in frame of the bike. These batteries are secured with two CNC machined plates, the brown leather ensures you do not scratch your leg on the mounting bolts. Most charging comes from a mains charger which is plugged into the back of the solar panel. The solar panel will give you approximately 15min of running for 1 day of sunlight. The bike has just had a new tough rear rim installed, a larger front sprocket has also been installed to enable you to peddle at higher speeds while using the motor. This bike has a front LED headlight and a key ignition, the plastic cover has unfortunately come off the display, this now has clear tape over it.

This bike has been a fun project, now I am ready to move onto the next project. Built in June 2012, originally the range was 28km, this has now decreased to 20km. The batteries have had approximately 90 cycles, and should be fine up to 250 cycles.

This bike requires registration if it is to be used on the road.

You can pick the bike up from Palmerston North or I can deliver the bike to you at a cost of $0.60 per km. i.e. Wellington is 140 km from Palmerston North so would cost $84 to deliver. You are also welcome to arrange another means of transport.
