LocationRiverside, California United States map
Vehicle1985 Honda Interceptor
Converted originally in 2010 with 8-Optima D34/78 batteries, then tried out Thunder-Sky, which failed, then bought and installed some CALB cells to my satisfaction
MotorAdvanced DC K91-4003 Series Wound DC
I am over-volting this motor at 120 volts
DrivetrainDirect drive
ControllerEvnetics Soliton Jr.
Yes, I put an insanely large motor controller in my motorcycle and it is worth it.
Batteries36 CALB/Skyenergy 40Ah, 115.20 Volt, Lithium Iron Phosphate
These are way better than Thunder-Sky.
System Voltage115 Volts
ChargerElcon 1500 watt
HeaterBeen thinking about scavenging motor, controller and battery heat by way of a fan and tube into my jacket, but I live in So Cal, so it's not going to be necessary for now.
InstrumentationI made a holder for my smart phone, which I use for my 0-60 times, gps, speedo and any other computing needs I may have while riding. JLD-404Intelligent Ah meter.
Top Speed87 MPH (139 KPH)
I have different sprockets that I change out for testing performance
Acceleration0-60 mph in 7.783 sec
0-87 mph in 14.7 sec
Range26 Miles (41 Kilometers)
I am very throttle happy and a lot of my available capacity gets lost as heat in the cells. If I were to limit current from the batteries and drive like a sane-r person, I might actually be able to break 45 miles in good conditions and at 45 mph.
Watt Hours/Mile142 Wh/Mile
Freeway whr/mile is over 180, while in city driving I got 142 last I checked, but my average speed was 35, max of 50 and I'm not trying to conserve for maximum range yet.
EV Miles
Current:500 Miles (804 Kilometers)
    As of 5/17/2013
Seating Capacity2, but I'm sure in certain countries, 3or 4 people would find places to sit and there's definitely enough power for that kind of weight.
Curb Weight530 Pounds (240 Kilograms)
The bike weighs almost exactly what it did stock.
Conversion TimeInitially converted in less than 3 days, but I have been reworking it since then, so it's technically still under the knife.
Conversion CostSoliton: $2000
CALB cells: $2000
K91-4003: $500
donor: $1000
misc: $1000 and counting
Additional FeaturesI cut apart the fuel tank and created a trunk-space therein. I managed to centralize most of the mass such that I have enough room where the gasoline used to reside to fit 5 dozen eggs, a gallon of liquid beverage and nook&crannies for things that like nooks and crannies.
I have yet to trim some weight and further centralize the mass and make it more aerodynamic for better acceleration/range/EV grin.
