Just thought I would post up a quick message about my bike. I love it. I decided I really wanted a digital dashboard so I built one. I've included the link to all the photos as the project "grew". I started just trying to do a 7 segment display with 4 numbers (first two would be charge, second two would be speed). Turns out the 7segments I had weren't very sunlight visible... that is to say, not at all visible. :) So I tweawked some more, learned some more, and the project grew bigger.. and finally turned into a LCD display.
I spent about $40 building it. (And alot of very geeky work with an arduino micro controller to run the LCD).
The first few pictures are of the bike after shipping. There was some damage that Current took care of no issues. Then you'll see the display project.
Feel free to ask questions. I'm pretty busy, but I'll get back to answer when I can. Next step, I think I'm going to make the numbers in the SoC (State of Charge) a bigger font. (About half the size of the speed #). I am more than happy to detail out how exactly I built it if people want to build their own. I will warn you that it isn't "simple" and does require soldering/cutting your current dash with a dremel, a bit of cussing and scary moments when you think you might have broken something. But if there is enough interest, I don't mind putting it out there for people to duplicate.
What would be very awsome (I haven't asked yet) is if Current Motor had a source for the dash "insert" that had a cutout with just a square instead of the 3 circles (2 small on the outside, 1 bit in the center). Then they could sell the digital dashboard upgrade that has a full electronic dash in it. Plugin replacement for those of us who think analog gauges are old school. :)
Laters for now,
