    One problem I've run into is the gap between the brake rotor and the motor is pretty small so the original brake caliper doesn't fit!

    I contacted QS Motor and they recommended a few from their catalog that would work. Ended up getting this one in grey. I'll need to get a new mounting bracket made based on the original design and this new caliper.

    Had some awesome help from Danny Ripperton (AEVA member) machining the swingarm blocks that hold the hub motor axle.

    Put the new blocks into the existing swingarm, swapped the tyre over and got it all into the bike. Next step is to work out how to mount the batteries and controller inside the frame. Decided to push the bike home from the workshop and got some interesting shots on the way icon_e_biggrin.gif

    thats gonna be awesome

    if you want a matching 6 spoke wheel for the front to match the rear, you could look at the hyosung gt250r/650r front wheels. would be very similar.

    Thanks for that, I was thinking it would be easier to register if I didn't change the front wheel and brake setup so hadn't even thought about doing that but would be nice to match the wheels. I was thinking I would paint the front wheel black to get me part way there
