    Hi there. I was wondering if anyone out there would have a good condition battery box I could weld into my S1? Mine is badly rotted out. Also, still looking for an outer spoke for my 13" S1 wheels. Want to get them blasted and stripped soon. Thanks

    Dave, I'm having some battery boxes made....they will be exact duplicates of the originals.

    I'll keep you posted!

    Not sure exactly how long before they will be ready.

    I have a visit with my Fabricator for tomorrow.

    Hi Dave,
    I have a nice used one for $75 plus shipping. If this is an agreeable price I can send pictures.

    Tom, seems like that would work. Could you send a picture and approximate shipping to NC, 28560?

    Here are some pictures. Note sawsall cut on one corner. Shipping by UPs would be $32.95.

    The battery box is spot welded in. If you drill out the welds, the box will come out without mush trouble. Just FYI

    That's the old what costs less a bunch of drill bits at three bucks a shot or one $10 husky diamond blade that I could probably cut a car in half with.

    Guys, thanks for all the tips. It helps a lot. Progress is slow, but getting there. Dave
