This is nearly finished visually so may as well post it up.
2nd to last photo to be used please. Call it 'Electric NC24'

AC15 induction motor - Direct drive with regen
Curtis 550A controller
28x60ah LiFe batteries - 90V pack
DC-DC converter

New subframe
New stressed member
Profile cut motor mounts
Aluminium battery box
Aluminium welded/riveted front guard
Aluminium headlight housing for single headlight with solenoid activated high beam
Controller chill plate with machined water course
Custom hall effect sensor speedo (fed to arduino uno and displayed on backlit LCD in custom circular housing. Code chopped up from internet sources.
RFID access.
New tires, bearings, brake lines, fork oil/seals, brake seals etc.
LED indicators and tail light - entirely new wiring harness with 12v auxiliary battery charged by the main pack

Things to do:
Better cooling for motor
Water cool controller if I manage to hack it :)
Make speedo more accurate, use larger text.

Bike reaches max motor rpm at 142 km/h in its 1 gear which happens to be 88mph, just fast enough for time travel according to the Back To The Future doco.

Fun to ride but I'm pretty sure its got very conservative firmware on it, gotta fix that.
