Long time and not much new, but things look promising.

Well, only a couple things to report, the adapter and spacer plates are complete, the clutch assembly is working (Mostly, still have a minor issue somewhere which is causing the flywheel to grind on a few bolt heads). I have taken it upon myself to build my own controller from scratch and I have had a bit of success with that, the logic board is complete and the next part is designing the main MOSFET and heat-sink system, that should be interesting.

MOSFETs for driving the motor, each one is rated for 1.5 KW.
Logic board for the controller, it's rather shoddy looking but it works surprisingly well.
And of course the motor and transmission assembly, the motor is a bit on the heavy side.
