I can get replacement smoke for you but it is Lucas brand. Not sure if it is compatible.

No, nooooo! That is English smoke! This bike is mainly metric, same standard, but certainly no Whitworth at all !!!!

Thanks for all the info about your bike Marlboro180! I started looking at electric powered vehicles in a different way after seeing a local pbs show about a dragstrip in my area hosting a national electric powered car show and drag race,it's quite amazing the technology that's involved in them and the power output was quite impressive.

Yup, Killacycle is a fun one to watch, as well as seeing names like Don Garlits getting into the action.

My simple electric bike is down, due to either a bad BMS, or a bad cell in the pack causing the BMS to shut down into default protection mode, still working on it.

Wagon, that is a great link, don't think I have ever seen the whole thing before, but it sure brings back memories of one of my friends I helped restore a Spitfire 1800, and yet another friend do a ground- up on an Austin Healy MK II.    I can only imagine if Lucas, "Lighting by the Prince of Darkness" got involved in this kind of stuff.     - Blackholes- BEWARE!

 

Just a fun vid of the Killacycle, 8.21 sec run at 155mph.

As cool as that it to watch it is boring to hear. Sounds like a rabid electric toothbrush. Something much more exciting about hearing an internal combustion engine roaring.

A  "rabid electric toothbrush "- I like it . :rolling:  I agree the infernal combustion engine is fun to listen to somedays.

 

This might bore ya a bit, but kinda shows the power of the 4,500 W motor when things are going right, which ain't today.

I am guessing you now have a 2 speed. One super slow and one warp 10?
