Hey all, new to the group. Came here from the Zappy Yahoo Group.
I recently purchased an old Currie Scoot-E from Craigslist for $35,
and was wondering if anyone had any technical specs on it?
I can't find any info online... Currie Customer Service is a joke when you have a model that's about 9 years old. This is my first E-Scoot...
I believe it has a brushed/finned motor, but I don't know what wattage. I am also looking for tips on replacing the 3-wire plug thumb throttle. All the parts stores I've found online are out-of-stock for 3-wires. I was thinking of just wiring in another potentiometer, but haven't yet. It has a chain-drive, not direct drive, and I don't think it freewheels. I also can't find a controller in it, just a fuse, but no controller. All the throttles I've looked at, even the out-of-stock 3-wires, seem to require a controller between the throttle & motor.
Before the throttle broke, it seemed to be running fairly well.
Top speed I'd guess is somewhere between 12-15mph, longest trip I've taken since getting everything together was about 5-6 miles, and it
still had plenty of juice left.
Since I've gotten it, I replaced the 10Ah batteries with some Rhino 12Ah ones, welded a bicycle seatpost on it, (it was a stand-on scoot),
fabricated a new battery cover to accomodate the larger batteries,
cut a hole in the rear wheel cover to go over the seatpost, added a kickstand, reflectors, & a small storage box.
Any technical info or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Here's a photo of what it looked like when I got it:
