Instructions for the electric motorEven though electric motors have been around for a while, so far I have not found any instructions that would enable the do-it-yourselfer to build a motor that is actually useful. That is why I decided to develop my own electric motor using simple materials and tools and which could be replicated by any tech-savvy person. More information can be found on my website.
The following provides a quick look at building such a motor.
- One side of the magnets (56 disc magnets type S-30-10-N) is roughened with sandpaper.
- 28 magnets are placed on the rotor.
- The magnets are mounted by slightly lifting each one individually and then gluing it on.
Test driveThis impressive video shows, that this modified motorcycle can reach speeds of 110 km/h, which is equivalent to an engine output of approx. 26 kW!
