So much easier if you would post the pic instead of a link.
Can't see it. Hope it looks good.

parts list for those looking to duplicate

junk mx500 60 bux
leeson .75hp ebay deal 60 bux shipped
yk43b from china 42 shipped
17 tooth 5/8 bore sprocket surplus center 10 bux
10 feet chain 20 bux
3 18ah batteries 101 bux ebay
8gauge wire and connectors 12 bux
300amp switch 15 bux
large aluminum L 2inch by 3 inch bracket for motor mount 12 bux
hose clamps 5 bux
master links and half link 8 bux shipped
345 bux but i already had the controller , and the switch , and the hardware.. but assuming you can find a cheap mx500 , and a cheap industrial you can do it , it takes scouring ebay and craigslist daily, being lazy this build will cost you 800 just for the motor and bike.

Recently had ACL surgery so your signature at the bottom is spot on. Craziness is beginning to set in :roll:
