Vehicle1980 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.
MotorUnite Motor MY1018Z unknown
DrivetrainShimano 3 speed rear cruiser hub
ControllerYi Yun YK42-2
Batteries2 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 Voltage24 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.

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.

This bike is always being tinkered with. I hope to get a permanent battery rack now that I have some reliable batteries.
