It's still not the fastest thing on the block but way better. I'm now getting around 12-16mph on flat road with 5-7 on inclines using a GPS speedometer. I just read about the charging cycle and the Accu Power charger that came with it and from what I understand the amp reading should work its way down to 4-8 amps when fully charged. It started out at 22 amps and after 3 hours it worked its way down to 15 amps.

I think you're spot on though, even if the batteries sat in a corner and didn't get used they're a decade old so I'm going to replace them. What is a good brand to go with since I may have to order them online?
Sounds like you well on your way to a lot of fun...

Batteries? If they happen to be 10 years old that's considered 2 life times old...

Try not to order online as shipping batteries will eat you up... Search local and go an hour if need be... Buy the best you can afford and consider Trojan, Crown and US Battery the top 3 picks, NAPA, Deka & Interstate follow suit with Energizer from Sam's etc in the last...
