I started this some time ago but lost interest, then came the the lock down and I found I had more free time on top of my already free time so started tinkering with it again.
The goal was to use material on hand and not buy anything to finish.
Had to buy batteries and some gear lube.
The rest is pretty much metal and stuff that has been laying around for way more than a year.
The running gear is Fiat.
It is 48 volt so not much more than a golf cart that will hit 40 or better.
I am guessing it is under 1,000 pounds.
I can easily lift the front wheels off the ground.
It feels like 125 to 150 lbs.
Most of the weight is in the back and my son and I can lift the back end together.
Was planning on 72 volts but it goes good enough as is for what I will use it for.
Still need to work on the alignment because it gets squirrely at 35 to 40mph.
The right front brake grabs more than the other.
I think it is because I plumbed each line directly from MC to each brake.
Climes and side hills pretty good and can spin a doughnut in the dirt so I guess the operation was a success.
