Yeah his conversion is coming along. He's just got a bigger Danfoss controller running on the beast from what I know.

I am only new to the EV arena - so please feel free to correct me (please).

In NCOP13 (Feb06) it says that electric drives cannot be fitted to motorbikes or trikes.
Do I have an old copy of NCOP13 or did he get special exemption?
