Vehicle1975 Honda GL1000
It's the first year of the Goldwing. The bike is in decent shape, though the more I work on it, the more I find. I paid more for it then I should have, since I don't know if it even ran to begin with, but it was exactly what I was looking for and I have the "I want it now" complex.
Haven't decided yet. I'm thinking:

D&D Model #ES-15A 48-72VDC 10hp

Any suggestions are welcome.
DrivetrainShaft drive, 3.44:1 I am planning on putting a CVT on it that ranges from 1:1 to 3:1, which should give me smooth startup and good high end... or so I have convinced myself. I'll let you know how it goes.
Batteries6, 12.00 Volt,
Also to be determined.
System Voltage72 Volts
