Glad it wasn’t me riding this when this happened, talk about a hoy bum!!

From the quick look that I’ve just had of it, it looks like the battery compartment has set on fire first, more than likely through an electrical short circuit somewhere inside the battery box!!! I’ll try and diagnose the cause of it when I get it all stripped down!! ๐Ÿ˜†

This one came to us a good few weeks ago now, but I just haven’t had any time to do anything with it, in fact this is the first time that I’ve actually looked at it closely!! But it does look worse than it is! ๐Ÿ˜†

Success! You're on the list.

It’s really well melted the plastics away, but everything else looks like it might be salvageable!!

I took the compartment cover off, the one were the controller sits inside! And there doesn’t seem to be any sort of damage in there! So that’ll be a bit of good luck if it hasn’t touched any of I!!! ๐Ÿ˜† I’ve nearly got the battery etc out of the frame, it’s being a bit of a sod to get it released because of all the melted plastic still holding it to the frame!! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 

Controller compartment seems to have faired pretty good, considering the amount of heat that will have been coming from it!

Well later on today, coz it’s now 04.38am and I’ll soon be getting myself off to bed, as all of this is starting to catch up with me a bit now!! So I reckon that I have a few early nights so that I can re-charge my own batteries!! Lol!! ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด

I managed to get the majority of the bike stripped down in between doing other things I had to do today, and I’ve removed the motor so I can check and test it out. Make sure that everything is good with it! But I’ll keep you all updated and informed of the progess with it!!!


And also it might hopefully help some of you out there to be able to do some certain jobs on your own, after you have been following us for a while and seeing what it is that I’ve been doing!!! And I’m gonna start to use videos instead of pictures, bcoz there’s a lot of stuff that you will be missing whilst I’m using pictures and text!! So I’ve got to get some software so that I can run it pre-recorded, or if I want to I can run it live!!! ๐Ÿ˜†

Success! You're on the list.

I love to bargain hunt and I'm forever at markets, car boots, events, swap meets ,auto-jumbles and everything else in between!! :) And then I thought that it might be a good idea to try and bring it to more people, like those who can't get out for whatever reasons, or there's the people who just don't know where to start! I was the same as you, not knowing what to do can be one of the most scariest things you can do!!! But I had to give it a go and I had my partner telling me and reassuring me that things will work out!! I wish I had his enthusiasm ๐Ÿ˜†
But I'd just like to take this opportunity to say thank you for just stopping by and hopefully as time goes on I'll be able to make it into a decent website, that is easy for people to use and find their way around it!!
So I hope that you have had a good visit, and seen something that you liked!! :) And you never know we might even end up having some deals/swaps etc at some point!!

Many Thanks for visiting The Swap Shop Store
