Vehicle2007 Chopper
a old push bike with a modified frame that has been arc welded together and has had most of the paint striped off. This "chopper" is in its 3rd stage of development at the moment and needs a controller and larger battery's. I'm going to purchase three li-ion 11.1v 6000mAh laptop battery's to power the scooter due to them being light and not having any memory during their charging and discharging cycles.

Accelerationvery quick, 3 seconds im adding a forth battery with a switching system that enables it.
