Speed sensor

Today I went out with Nancy and bought a Bell bike computer to use for speed and distance measuring.  I tested it with a drive motor running off from one of the 12 volt batteries.  I got a speed of 6 miles per hour with no load on the wheels and there was no interference from the motor on the speed sensor operation.

Another small task completed today was drilling 8 holes in the battery trays for the safety chain mounts.  I will ask Allen if someone at his shop can weld in the 3 trays and the 4 safety chain mounts at some point.  First I want to double check that everything I need to do is completed.

I also used a pin vice to drill a hole for mounting the sensor.  You can read more about that in the next post.
