The Super sport was found in the back
room of a local Motorcycle shop. We
will have set it up as the Factory
sponsored race bikes of the late 70's
with correct fiberglass and tank. It
was street legal, but is now being
raced in the Historic Moto Gran Prix.
Motor Motenergy ME1003 Permanent Magnet DC
This ME1003 is a Brush-Type, Permanent
Magnet DC motor with very high
efficiency. Capable of 11.5 KW
continuous and 23 KW for 1 minute. For
voltages from 12 to 72 VDC input and
amps continuous (400 amps for 1
Drivetrain420 Chain drive (4.2:1) with Motenergy's
new ME1003 motor.
ControllerKelly KDH12600D,24-120V,600A
I would have liked to continue using
Alltrax, but their controllers voltage
stop at 72 (90 max) and we are
increasing our capacity to 105 volts.

Kelly,s Controllers have gotten better
with the newer line of Opto-isolated
units. I will report my findings after
the first race of 2013.
Batteries160, 3.32 Volt, Lithium Iron Phosphate
We have this in a 26S5P configuration at
the moment but as of 10/2012 we are now
racing this motorcycle. We will adding 30
more cells and upgrading several
other items.
System Voltage105 Volts
Charger 2 Headway Headquarters 16 cell 10A chargers
32 Single cell LiFePO4 chargers for the
balance charge and 2 Headway Headquarters
16 cell 10A chargers for the quick charge

102MPH so far, hoping for more since we
added more cells.

pulled. Fun stuff!
Conversion Cost$3800 then
$4500 with racing upgrades
A complete writeup on the build is on

Take care!
