My friend ray and l have paid some learning curve BAFANG dues for many months. Its paid off now, i turn the wrenches and order stuff and ray does all the wires and laptop work. I sent to vegas to have soft-start firmware installed @ lectric-cycles/the erad people.

I tried to talk customer out of a bafang, glad i lost because l like the bafang alot and have learned much. The bafang is a rewarding option. It has its uses and will be needed over next 30 years of infrastructure in usa of bikeways for the masses.

Amature body bondo builder like me can draw sections and buy a profile guage from ebay for shape. It helps much on the plug being made.

I wanted wide rear cowling, thinkin about L & R under skin carry compartments mounted in rear cowling for light stuff. Worked on this plug forever.

KEEP ROLLING ON GREY DURATEC TO READY FOR SANDING.

Just ongoing velomobile lift iam trying to perfect. Jack up a loaded velomobile with your foot and let it back down with other pedal.

Rear saddle turned out great, just add some felt. Finish front saddle tomorrow.

Older style lift (older photo), l keep mod’ing it,, ready for more mods over next couple weeks. Lay under velo with pad and pillow and adjust 6 tie-rods for hour and other stuff: my 4 wheeler up in the air, it has took me away from 3 wheelers. Best money l have spent in years (the quattrovelo rear-end) to learn about what ls handed down from the euro leaders.

FOLDS UP TO THE WALL 20” X 50”.

Now i have it going on in true fashion up front on the macpherson strut and mag wheel. Magnet on inside front spoke of mag wheel. Lil polarized red light thing from bafang with two plastic ties mounts great on front strut (right side). USA invented macpherson strut from Chevrolet engineer /dr. Macpherson 1955 or so.
