Part 1 of a series of videos tracking the progress of the electric trike.

Specs for temporary setup:
+Worksman Eagle Lite CB Adult Tricycle
+24v 250w brushed electric motor (Currie?)
+Two 12v 10ah batteries wired in series = 24v 10ah
+Throttle, controller, charging port, charger, on/off switch, led indicator, fuses, and wiring harvested from a Schwinn Missile FS electric scooter.

While this setup is fun, it's not quite powerful enough for this trike, that's why it's temporary. We plan on getting a front wheel hub motor kit from www.ampedbikes.com very soon. Stay tuned for part two :)
