Conversion Time200 Hrs, which included complete restoration
of every part, calipers, bearings, frame
body work etc.
Conversion Cost$4,500 including $450 for donor bike
Additional FeaturesDecided to incorporate CVT from golf cart. My belief is it will
reduce work load of motor on starts and hills resulting in
longer range under real conditions. The Nissan Leaf and Chevy
Volt use CVT's so there must be an advantage.
