2008 Vectrix for sale with bad charger.

So my beloved Vectrix is now down for the count with a failed charger and I have disconnected the battery pack for preservation (with about 130 volts left).

I don't have the time or desire to repair or disassemble the bike for parting her out, so if anyone out there is interested in a complete bike (with a bad charger) for parts or tinkering (repair or conversion to Li?) and willing to come to Alabama (Montgomery area) to pick it up, I will entertain any reasonable offer.

It's been a great ride and buckets of fun to own, but at this point I think I would rather invest any further monies in a Chevy Volt, so my Vectrix days are done.

That's a lovely colour and the charger is not ridiculously expensive to replace, so it could make a good deal for somebody.

LithiumVectrix uses an external charger on his scooter. Obviously no fuel gauge, but otherwise does the job.

He installed a charge point on my scooter for me too, but thanks to the Laird, my charger is doing the job with the new batteries perfectly well.

Anyway, point is, installing an external charge point and getting a charger is only a few hundred dollars.

Any leads on info about this modification?

I think I may have reached the point where the end does not justify the means, at any price, but any information might be helpful to the next owner.

If you decide to part it out or sell it real cheap I would be interested.

Re: 2008 Vectrix for sale with bad charger.

I'd prefer to sell it as a rolling parts bike, just because I don't have the time to disassemble it, and shipping on many of it's useful parts would be expensive due to weight and/or size. If you care to make an offer, I will certainly consider it. You can either reply here or email me at mocc [at] moccsplace.com

Aren't you the guy who was kind enough to loan me the CAN cable when Harry updated my software? If so, I thank you again for your kindness.

Yes, that was me. Thank you for your generous gift and I'm sorry you have problems with your bike. I don't think I have room in my garage for another bike but always looking for extra parts.

Re: 2008 Vectrix for sale with bad charger.

If I do decide to part it out by pieces, I'll post another note here. Parts are so sporadically needed that it seems a waste trying to put stuff on eBay, but she's got good body parts, lights, good battery, framework, motor controller and rear end, so sooner or later somebody may need something. I've got a place out behind the shed that is covered, and a cover for the bike, so she can rest in peace until she rests in pieces! HAHA!!

I also have a low profile seat and a winter windshield that I'll put up for sale in a couple of weeks, when I have time to fool with boxing ans shipping stuff.
