SHE’S ALIVE, ALIVE I TELL YOU…. πŸ˜†

I’m not sure if you will be able to see the wheel spinning in the pictures I’ve taken, but I tried my best, and the next lot of pictures might give you a better look of it! πŸ˜† So these ones are just showing you it set up and you can see it’s got the power with the red lights on!

Definitely need to start using some videos in my posts, at least then you’d be able to see the wheel spinning up!!! And it works really well indeed πŸ˜† which I’m happy as Larry about! So now I’m in a bit of a dilemma; I can’t decide whether to do the fenetic I’ve just taken this motor from, and put it in a bike that I’ve had for quite some time now! It’s an old and rare Sakurai bike!! πŸ˜†πŸ˜† I was going to keep it all original, but at the end of the day what harm am I doing to it by making it a bit better, more modern on the technology front etc?? So I think if I can get the motor to fit without too much hassle then I reckon on that’s what I’ll do!! But only time will tell eh?? πŸ˜†

This is the motor that I’m gonna be putting on the old Sakurai πŸ˜† And the sofa, well that’s for me when I’m knackered and the cushions say the rest for me! πŸ˜†

WOW!!! I’VE NEVER SEEN ONE DO THIS BEFORE!!!

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!! πŸ˜†

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! πŸ˜†

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!!! πŸ˜† 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!! 😠😠

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!! πŸ˜† 😴😴😴

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!!!

INSIDE THE EBIKE WHEEL HUB, IS WERE THE MOTOR SITS.

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!!! πŸ˜†

Success! You're on the list.

What a day……

Well all I’ve been doing all day and night long is chase up shipping agents, shipping companies, air and sea container travel!!! But after all that, I do have some questions for you, and I’d really, really appreciate it if you could give us some genuine, honest feedback!! Good and bad, we wanna hear everything, and don’t worry you won’t hurt our feelings! Lol! πŸ˜† So here goes:

FRESHLY IN OFF THE BOAT

So I’d love to be able to get a bit of help off everyone who reads this: it’s sort of sumat like when you have a poll;

JUST ABOUT TO UNPACK ONE OF THE EBIKES, AND GET IT ASSEMBLED, YOU’LIKE BE ABLE TO RIDE THIS WITHIN 20 TO 3 MINUTES!

Question One: Who’d like to see an ebike like I’ve just explained above?

HERE WE ARE, ALL ASSEMBLED AND READY TO RIDE!! πŸ˜†

Question Two What bothers you the most about ebikes

Question Four: What are your likes/dislikes regarding ebikes?

Question Three: What would you like to see be changed if you could?

Question Five: And finally, what’sthe most important thing(s) to you on an ebike? And you can give as many answers in reply to each individual question! πŸ˜†

All/any sort of help or advice would be greatly appreciated, because at the end of the day I’m getting these bikes for you! And it depends on the sort of feedback that I get, that will more than likely help me to make the final decisions!! Whether people want them to look just like any other bike out there, or whether you wanna stand out from the crowd, it’s all totally your own choice! πŸ˜†

FULLY ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION
