Finally on the Road
« on: 02, June, 2013 - 20:27:24 »
So... After 6 months,
3 MFK Police tests (think MOT, but with the police),
1 Complete rebuild and deep clean,
2 Motors,
3 Controllers,
25km of indoor testing,
30 Meters of Cable,
1 Small fire,
And about 100 hours or work,
My Sinclair C5 is now road legal here in Basel.    I can now get back to the interesting add-on projects I'd started at the end of last year. And to see if any other C5's in the region fancy a meetup  8)



I'll like to thank everyone on forum for the very very valuable resource that is the c5alive forum  ;D 8).

Pat

Hi Luke,

That head light is a wopper.  ;D ;D

Yes, it is  :( - But that is one of the legal requirements here in Basel where I live (it is a motorbike front light - which is what my C5 is classed as here  >:( ).   The plan is next to replace it with an originally sized one, once the local police etc, have seen me on the road for a few more months......

Any pics of the inside of the 2 motors

Sure:

But I only have the one in their now (a very small and slow 250W).  I was only listing what I'd gone though to get to this stage  ;)
