A wiring diagram of my battery pack. All wires are within an 1/8" of each other, 2 parallel, 2 series. Buddy paired, wires to and from pack balanced.

Cheetah, front fender

Well, Folks
I been complaining a lot, so I finally buckled down, had a sheet of stainless steel. Got out the jig saw, cut me out a fender. Mounted my lights to it. Will probably go with one light, just put a better bulb in. That's for the future. A little clean up on the wiring too.

Cheetah, old pics

Thought this was part of my blog, found it buried way back in bikes and pedelecs,

http://visforvoltage.org/forum/bicycles-and-pedelecs/1270

The Raliegh, my first e bike, is buried, even further,

Old pics, I, for one, am not a photographer.

Cheetah, Last Hoorah?

How and why did I build this bike? Design limitations

Why, not philisophical, short drive to work. My car would'nt heat up. Hard on a car to make short trips. I knew an electrical bike could be made. I googled, saw what others where building, where they were getting contollers, performance.

Now the How

I built off the work and effort of others. Eric Peltzer had just about what I considered to be the perfect E-bike. I built it. I did'nt do many calculations, just used his advice.

The Cheetah, putting things right

I have been reluctant to enter, My back room. You may be shocked to see what I keep back here, parts of dismembered bicycles. After a year of hacking up my favorite bikes I have repented my ways. Come with me and see if I can make things right.

Left dangling by its heel, my first mountain bike, a venerable chromemoly frame, the most comfortable bike I had ever rode, stripped of all its dignity. It called, I entered.

simple wiring help

aa_paint__brake_tail_and_turn.jpg

I have most of the wiring figured out for my rear lights. Now, how do I wire the brake lights, when I apply my brakes will my turn signal not flash. For me the easy way would be to just run a third light for my brake light. It looks to me that automotive flasher, has 2 prongs, should be run like this, does it over ride the brake signal and keep just one of the lights flashing, will both lights flash if I hit the brakes?
