The batteries have now been reconfigured into two pannier style battery packs on either side of the

the other half upright. All batteries are now upright.

Currently the Honda E/Mail is off the road for a full rebuild. The plan is to fit lightweight alloy rims and
disc brakes and a 72V Li-ion (LG HG2) battery pack.
