    electric conversion of a goped cruiser

    Hello every one,

    I'm new on this site, french and my English is not so good.
    i'd like to show you what i've done on a poor cruiser : change gas motor for an electric one.
    i've used a RC motor and electronics, made a little aesthetics and mechanics changes.
    The results are here: 50 km/h max speed that i haven't reached yet and violents starts (maybe should i set soft start on the esc). Autonomy about 20 km (estimation).
    i don't speak about the cost because I would have been able to buy a new scooter for it.

    Here a video of the construction..

    good night

    Hello, and Welcome to the Billet Board

    That was an excellent and very entertaining documentation of your innovative build. Your craftsmanship and attention to detail is quite admirable, and the scooter itself looks like it was professionally built and sold that way. Thank you for sharing and I hope to see more about this build.

    The acceleration does not look that brisk on the first day of use in this video, did you GPS its top-speed ?

    Hello!
    I've just made a little video of an "inboard" road test with gps speed measurment thats give 38km/h with only half throttle.
    I think i can do better.theoricaly the top speed should be around 50 km/h.

    hi filbo! Not if you have left the original video without Audio dubbing?
    Listen to the sound of the engine operation.

    trying to avoid reinventing the wheel

    I watched the video and your goped turned out great! I have some knowledge with electrics as I own many brushless rc planes,boats,cars and trucks. However I am not sure exactly what I need to do something similar to this. I recently acquired a hoverboard sport. It already has a brushless motor however I don't think it can handle the power of your set up. I thought about just replacing the stock batteries but after doing research I found the controller board is susceptible to failure. With that being said I would rather start from scratch. If I use the same motor and speed controller as you what addition did you use to make your controller mechanical? Also where did you get your pinion gear for the motor? Do I need the 8000mah packs or could I use something smaller 2000-6000 range. What size pinion/spur are you using? Thanks in advance! FYI the stock setup is spindle driven but I was planing on converting it to the GSR Sport chain drive setup if possible...

    Great work, I would love to hear your price lol. Making use of the stock frame mount is the greater idea ever!!!! if this gives performance of a 460, I'd totally love the option to bolt this on at times.
    It's just a scooter, it'll be fun they said!
