Motorizing it!! (Part 1)

So my wheels came in the mail a few days ago. They have abec 9 bearings so it rides much smoother than it did before.

These are 90mm 78a wheels. They are HUGE and awesome.

I spent about a half an hour mounting the pulley/cog to the wheel. It was relatively easy because there were holes already in the hub. Its lookin’ good so far!

This took around 30 minutes to complete. That yellow stuff you see there is another sheet of plastic I cut to fit there. It acts as a spacer because the bolts were about 1-1/2 cm too long.

The wheels already had holes in them so I just stuck some bolts through them and mounted the pulley.

I have already started building the motor mount for it. I am screwing it into the trucks and securing it with some welds. There should be an update within a few days.
