Shorai Battery box
A quickish update. I’m still waiting on parts to start the rewire. I’m hoping my birthday tomorrow brings some shiny treats for the bike….
The Shorai Battery arrived and I was blown away by it’s size and weight.
New vs Old
In the meantime I got to work building the battery mounting box. I’m fabricating this out of sheet aluminium. After a couple of sketch drawings I got to work using the bending brake.
A quick test fit.
Next I made the attachment strap out of aluminium as well.
Looks like this should work. I need some longer mounting bolts and some sheet rubber for protecting the battery from the metal, but it’s a start.
Next job will be to drill the holes into the frame for the battery box to mount to. I’m not looking forward to that bit!
