    This monstrosity weighs 120 pounds, but I have a 48 tooth gear in the front, and a 16 tooth in the back, next upgrade needs to be a internal three speed hub, usually am going at 18mph on average. The bike is might be a J. C. Higgins Freightliner, early '60s, but nobody knows.

    Everything sits on 1" thick solid wood, except for the speakers, 5/8" plywood. Switches go to the Bluetooth receiver, 9 band equalizer, sub amp, speaker amp, and tail light, there is a button on the handlebars for the horn, and a turn signal switch below the handle bars.

    The unit top right is a Bluetooth receiver, the black box is a nine band equalizer.

    Far board is a 600 watt amp for the sub, near board is a 2X100 watt amp for the speakers.

    Found something cool for only a buck, so I'm gonna add my 3000 lumen headlight, as an off road light for it. [​IMG]

    My project table is just a bit cluttered, light runs on 12v, and I have a plenty big enough one of those on the bike already, just gotta finish the edge

    I don't have anyone that could video me riding it, but here is a walk through of everything.

    Then realized I forgot to show the blinkers.
