My son has a physics/science project that involves designing and building.
For his project he would like to convert his kick scooter to an electrical scooter.
He will have to design and build brackets and a frame extension to make this happen.
I have been looking on your website and have many questions on what products will work together. Here are my thoughts:
- 5.5" Rear wheel, Item No. PCH-REARWHEEL (does not look axle is included)
- Axle Item No. PCH-AXLE (will this work with this wheel?)
- 24 Volt 100 Watt Item No. MOT-24100B
(Will this cog that comes with the motor match up with the cog that comes with the rear wheel?)
- I didn't find the cog diameters on you website, so I will need help selecting the correct one. I would like center of motor to center of wheel to be 6".
(Two) 12 Volt 5 AH Item No. BAT-12V5A
This is where I'm a little confused.
I was thinking Item No. SPD-24120
with throttle Item No. THR-35WG and brake LEV-25.
(The big question I have: is the motor used as the brake when the brake lever is pulled? It would be nice if it worked this way.)
Would also need connectors for controller if not provided.
If this controller does not use the motor as a brake, would it be best to use brake band Item No. BRK-60D with brake lever Item No. LEV-50L with brake cable and no speed controller and throttle Item No. PLN-THROTTLE for a single speed scooter?Hope this make sense. Any advise on parts to use and any helpful ideas would be appreciated. Once I have a list of components for this project, I will be ordering as soon as possible as this is a time sensitive project for my son
Thank you for all the information.
What would your best guess estimate be on how fast this would go with a 110 lb. kid and length of run time.
I realize that I have selected items at on the lower scale and may think of up-sizing depending on estimated speed and run time.
I want to make sure we have an enjoyable and usable scooter for the money spent.
100 Watts is a very low powered motor and would slow down a lot when going up inclines. For higher speeds a 250 Watt motor would be better, and for more run time 8Ah-12Ah batteries would help a lot with that.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
