|Location||Shelby, North Carolina US map|
|Vehicle||1980 Huffy Bay Pointe |
Bought this bike in rough but usable condition. I was planning to buy another bike, but this bike is just so simple to work on and reliable I decided to stick with it.
|Motor||Unite Motor MY1018Z unknown|
|Drivetrain||Shimano 3 speed rear cruiser hub|
|Controller||Yi Yun YK42-2|
|Batteries||2 Yuasa Genesis, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Flooded|
Bought these new old stock at a hamfest for $5 each. Even at $40 each online I wouldn't buy a different battery. Yuasa makes the best batteries I have ever used.
|System Voltage||24 Volts|
|Charger|| Thunder Power TP-610C / Razor float charger|
The TP-610C does an excellent job at charging but the Razor charger is much more convenient to use. It will most likely be mounted to the bike.
|Instrumentation||Schwinn Bicycle Computer|
|Top Speed||28 MPH (45 KPH)|
Wound out in third gear pedaling like a madman. This bike was made for riding around the neighborhood so 28mph is quite a feat. Top speed on flat land without pedaling is around 22mph.
|Acceleration||Strong pull coming off the line.|
|Range||10 Miles (16 Kilometers)|
10 strong miles up and down hills
|Seating Capacity||1 adult|
|Curb Weight||75 Pounds (34 Kilograms)|
|Conversion Time||4 months|
|This bike is always being tinkered with. I hope to get a permanent battery rack now that I have some reliable batteries.|
