Funbike edition summer 2012
Transforming a Volta into a electric recumbent scooter.
I started workinig on a electric motorbike for my son. He is
only 12 at the moment i started with the idea, but ...i knew that
development of a good design can take some time, so i hope to have
something ultra cool when he is 16. :)
At first i thought to make a complete new design. I bought hub
engines in the Netherlands. But ...building from scratch will take
for ever. And i wanted something like a quick project.
So ...i bought myself a brandnew electric scooter. It is a
EagleWing Volta. Maximum speed was calibrated to 45 km/h, which
makes it a vehicle my son could use as he gets 16 years old.
Oh yes, by the way ...if you are having fears about not being
heard in the traffic when using a electric vehicle, well, you can
do it like they did on this next video. Brilliant. :)
