We Have Clearance, Clarence

But, just barely.

Finally realized I was fooling myself about the eight-cell lithium working on this bike. Didn't want to get the whole thing together and have the smaller battery be insufficient to start the bike. So, I scrapped the old battery box I'd made and built one for the twelve-cell model, slightly bigger, more crowded, but should work.

Three weekends of sporadic, intoxicated work to fab up a battery box.

Glad I'm in no hurry.


  1. Looks like you are making good progress. Better to do it 2 or three times, rather than 4 or 5...
    My old boss had a saying, as he walked by one of his mechanics who was obviously struggling on a build. 'I see we are taking it together...' Then he'd walk off shaking his head and muttering under his breath.

  2. All that Ny-quil is reaping rewards, nice work Hermit.
