- Splinters all over my arms and legs which follow me into my bed! As you might know, they're impossible to find and pick out. But as skin naturally expells foreign objects, the splinters fall off in my bed over night. But then the next night I forget there's fibreglass splinters in my bed because I wake up feeling unprickled and clean, but alas I fall asleep in the bed of thorns again. omg I can't wait for mum or my girlfriend to wash my sheets. LOL.
ANYWAY...Here's another update
I made a seat pan and battery box out of fibreglass, that are about half done. The battery box is quite nifty, it's got a hinged lid and a lock. I need to figure out some way to mount it to the bike.
Thoughts: Weld some mounts and use Zip Ties vs Fibreglass Mounts vs Steel Mounts
Quite proud of the box so far (yay). It too a lot of time measuring, marking, fiddling, sanding, cutting etc. Next time, definately making it out of sheel metal.
Some sides are still a bit thin, which I'll need to thicken up the glass.
Thinking about a Rear Fender:
Fibreglass on up (which I hear from friends who build 'low rider' bicycles is a PITA to curve up vs A Harley Custom Fender on ebay or something.
A battery powered motorbike! Cool!
The battery looks big enough... Thinking of a way to mount the battery box and fit all the wiring bits and pieces properly. Challenging, I know. Any suggestions?
I hope to limit the use of any kind of electrical tray. That way, I can make use of the frame and keep the mounts provided. Oh, the battery box has about a fistfull of room, that I hope to fit a cigarette lighter inside for a GPS/iPhone connection. How would I add that to the wiring diagram?
(For anyone curious)
Anyone know where to find a clearer, less pixelated diagram by any chance?
A Diagram I drew up to visualise where what goes:
(n.b. There are two electrical devices which are in the wrong places)
Any help on the electrics is much much appreciated!
P.S. Larger pictures for reference:
What's the best way to learn how re-wire a bike?
Here's the Plan for Wiring
- Ignition Key switched to 'On' - Allows EVERYTHING to light up, including headlight, indicators, brake light, speedo back light and other safety necessities. Hence, when the kill switch is hit, EVERYTHING stays lit up.
- Add an Ignition Key switch to the frame
- Add a Hazard Light switch (All indicators on together)
- Add a Cigarette Lighter/Auxiliary Power - This should fit inside the battery box to power a GPS/iPhone which is I'm constantly needing to recharge.
That's all I can remember for now.
