Vehicle1973 Auranthetic Charger
Found this little gem while buying a Tote Goat mini bike. Bike has been in dry storage for many years, she is in good condition. Owner said batteries are gone, but I'm going to charge them anyway to see if there is any life.

On a side note, I am building an electric Honda 500 Shadow with a direct shaft drive, no chain. My Advanced DC K91-4003 motor arrived just yesterday (8.26.08).
MotorKDB Permanent Magnet DC
KDB Permanent Magnet 1 HP 24 Volt
DrivetrainChain drive with a KDB Permanent Magnet 1 HP 24 Volt motor
Whatever Auranthetic uses, I suspect it's a solenoid setup using one then two batteries.
Batteries2 group 27 rv deep cycle, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Flooded
System Voltage24 Volts

Original charger (Transformer & pair of Diodes) would cook the batteries. You could hear them boiling in the morning !

Again this is from Auranthetic documentation, sound way too high.

Conversion CostCan't say, wife might find out ;-)
I'm very interested in any information other may have about the Auranthetic Charger. Plan to restore and add a modern controller.

Here is a nice web page about the Auranthetic Charger electric motorcycle:
