ZAP DX ~ looking for spare motors, or source.
hi everyone. i've been riding motor-assisted bicycles since 2006. i travel long distance, so i've never been able to utilize an Electric-Assisted Bicycle, altho i once cobbled together a "tri-brid" using a Currie US ProDrive in tandem with a Golden Eagle.
phooey, i can't figure out attachments, so if you'd like to know more about what i do, this is my personal ad-free site: http://mb-rambler.mysite.com/
anyways, i've snagged a ZAP DX, and need info and/or parts.
i'm interested in scoring spare used motors, or learning where new replacements can be had.
The ZAP DX motors were derived from REVCOR motors used as a wiper motor on some cars.
I got started with a ZAP DX kit back in 1995. Are you sure this is what you want? Why not add a hub motor to your existing ride?
The controller board is just this little postage stamp of a board with very few components as I recall, and was designed in the early 90's long before anything other than lead was available. That said, lead and lithium follow a similar charging algorithm so I suppose it'll be safe with lithium cells so long as you don't try to fill the pack completely using regen.
I have a zap motor and circuit board. I don't know much about it but we jumped the motor to a battery and it works. Looking to sell it. I got it off an Electra bike I bought
