Hi how,

If you look over the 2 or 3 most recent pages of this Electric Bikes forum you will see 6 or 7 threads which I started concerning the Lightning MC. Also, you might enjoy the November issue of Motorcyclist Magazine which has a 2 page article on the Lightning as well as reviews on other Ebikes.

On the cover is MotoCzysz. And that is a nice bike, just a little slower than the Lightning ;). If you find the MotoCzysz web site, you can find where he will sell you a motor and controller package. As far as obtaining the motor which the Lightning uses, you may be able to come across a GM S10EV factory truck on auction or parts thereof in a junkyard somewhere. That would be the only way of which I am aware to get an EV1 motor, and where the Lightning motor was obtained, not by "ripping it off an EV1" :)

Regards,

major
