I have the motor mounting plates fully prototyped and the final version is ready for the CNC mill. We have an old converted mill running the A.G.E. 3 system (floppy disk style). These plates will be made of 1/4 inch 6061 aluminum. Under this I'm bolting 1/8 inch chromoly as my skid plate. The mud guard and fairing are made of thin stainless with complex bends for strength. The batteries mount on the inside of the fairing in a set of four. Another four under the other side fairing and another four between the motor mounting plates under the skid plate. These sets will be run in series to achieve 60V.
