The Super sport was found in the back
room of a local Motorcycle shop. We
will have set it up as the Factory
sponsored race bikes of the late 70's
with correct fiberglass and tank. It
is street legal, but has been
raced in the Historic Moto Gran Prix.

ControllerKelly KDH12600D,24-120V,600A
I would have liked to continue using
Alltrax, but their controllers voltage
stop at 72 (90 max) and we are
increasing our capacity to 105 volts.

Kelly,s Controllers have gotten better
with the newer line of Opto-isolated
units. I will report my findings after
the first race of 2013.
