Due to schedules, new babies, holidays, and general lack of money, nothing has happened in a while. However, I scored a MAJOR epic win at work today! The maintenance dept. had a scooter that wasn’t charging properly and was being scrapped. I stripped out all the electronics, but left the batteries behind.

The loot!

Close up of the motor:

So here’s the full list of what I came away with:

  • Motor
  • Motor Controller
  • Charger
  • Fixed-ratio single speed transaxle
  • Wiring Harness – throttle, battery meter, current limiter, battery terminals

Basically, EVERYTHING that we needed! Now, to find time to get together. I was told that it wasn’t charging the batteries – not sure if that’s the charger, or was the batteries, but I’ll be sure to find out!
