Additional FeaturesVector (a mathematical quantity that has direction and magnatude) has a custom paint job that was a result of a paint scheme contest. All the boys and their moma each colored a blank bike and we chose from there.
This was a summer project for my 4 sons (ages 12 to 16). I created a course and they went through the course diligently. They had to do the research, sit through lectures, take test and make presentations as well as do the conversion. It was really fun for all of us and we had no expirence with EV's before this. The constraints of the project were to finish with something we could ride on the road, Do it using as much recycled stuff as possible, do as much stuff as possible ourselves.
We are testing a talking about what the next project is. thanks to the EV community for all your help and support.
