Details of the MacArthur/Corbin Bike

I took some detail shots showing as much of the original build as I could, both before I set it up with the CALBs and after I returned it to original trim.  Here are a few of them.

One response to “Details of the MacArthur/Corbin Bike

  1. The first motorcycle I ever converted had a very similar setup: three 12V Group 31 batteries, small ADC motor and small Curtis. I built it to go up Mt. Washington but never got around to it. This was almost 10 years ago, shortly after my friend Dave and I met with folks at Mt. W. about reinstating the Alternative Energy day. THAT obviously didn’t work out and nothing happened until your recent effort. I hope they do it again some time. 🙂
