PonoBill would like this I think.
« on: November 18, 2019, 07:55:48 AM »
A former co-worker was into electric cars - sort of still is. He had a 4wd Mitsubishi pickup full of a pallet of lead acid batteries to commute. A dragster pinto - still on lead acid (he had access to a LOT of batteries pulled from work -we run 48 volt plants and change out is on a schedule  - plenty were still "good enough")

Funny - the electric truck was fairly practical but he mostly ended up driving his F350 Crewcab.

I sorta' wish I had time to blow on this project (no I don't assume Pono is buying this either :D He is retired so is WAY more busy than I am  ) - this little cafe bike would be fun to finish and zip around on.

Musk's electric pickup with shattering windows, it looks like it was designed by an amateur origami student, folded paper.  The most hideous thing I've ever seen on wheels, roll another fatty Elon, you need it.
It takes a quiver to do that.
