A friend is machining the motor and bearing plates to mount my TransMag 532 motor. I have to make the clamps, to mount the motor/bearing plates to the frame, in the next week or so and then I will be able to mount the motor onto the frame and start on the final design for the ‘body work’ and seat.
Also, I will be setting up the final drive but again after the motor assembly is mounted in the frame.
