At the time the best available batteries were lead/acid Gates technology. I used 48 volts and a Lynch motor driving the rear wheel by a toothed belt. It accelerated quickly to about 35mph and had a range in excess of 30 miles. It is based on a grp replica and is still in my garage. Would you like it? The batteries are dead obviously and would be best replaced by lithium now.
