List of materials:
– two electric motors and controllers;
– lithium-ion battery;
– wheels and other parts from mopeds;
– shaped pipes ;
– car seats.
List of tools:
– welding machine;
– tape measure, marker, etc. .
The process of making homemade products:
Step one. Welding the main frame
We weld the main frame, for this the author used profile pipes. Since the frame is not very rich in the number of pipes, it is better to take pipes with the thickest possible wall so that the structure does not fold while driving.
We weld the finished steering from a moped with a wheel to the frame.
Step two. Rear frame
Cut out ready-made hinges from a moped or scooter and weld to the frame. Next, you can attach the forks with wheels that the author made earlier. We put shock absorbers all from the same mopeds. We weld a separate frame from the pipe under the shock absorbers, and the seats will also be located on it.
Step three … Installing motors
We fasten the corners to the motors, and then center them and weld the fasteners to the main frame. That's all, the motors are installed, it remains to connect. Each motor has its own controller; for synchronous control of the motors, the author connected the controllers to one throttle handle.
Of course, it will not be superfluous to put a switch that will allow you to quickly switch to the mode of operation of one engine, which will save battery power. The author has a self-made battery from 18650 cells.
After assembly, the author carried out the first tests. 4 people rode on a homemade product, the structure withstood, the power of the motors was enough.
Step four. Strengthening the frame, installing seats and painting
The author has reinforced the frame at the welding point with the steering. We weld on strong steel plates here, since this place can break from a heavy load. We put 3 seats, weld pipes or a corner under them.
That's all, the frame remains to be primed and painted.
The homemade product is ready, looks great , you can carry tourists and more. And if you have a solar panel, the homemade product will be able to recharge on a clear day from the sun.
This completes the project, I hope you liked the homemade product and found useful thoughts for yourself. Good luck and creative inspiration if you decide to do this again. Don't forget to share your ideas and homemade products with us!
