Default 48v conversion parts.

I have found a 1997 cc ds 48v cart for sale locally but I am wanting to build a streetbike powered cart, so my question is what would the complete 48v electrical system be worth to sell someone as a complete conversion or even piece by piece. Thank you. Can't wait to get started on a cart but I'm on a budget so just trying to plan ahead a little.

I read with some interest your post. I have a 1996 cc 48 volt and experiencing some electrical problems. I would be interested in the electrical bits you speak of. Controller, OBC, speed control resistor assembly etc. I am in Australia but happy to pay shipping if parts costs are reasonable.
cheers
Lee

I don't want to rain on anybody's parade but, The beauty of a 48v conversion is the lack of on-board computers and the use of high amperage controllers to give that boosted performance.....
These stock components are more suited for repairs than upgrades.... The slowest cart I ever owned was a 96 48v stock cart with it's 225 amp controller.

My advice is to find a gas cart to make your conversion easier. The electric carts are direct drive differentials.

There are lots of people here willing to help
Mostly they have already made all the standard mistakes and now working on the unusual... results will vary.

Yeah I have been reading on here for a while. I was just thinking if the 48v stuff was worth enough I could get the cart practically free and do a solid axle like rifter because the way I play I don't think the cart rear will hold up. But if I decide reverse is important I will definitely be looking for a 4 stroke gas cart. Any other tips that you can think of would be appreciated.

my observation from both reading about and building hotrod golf carts is you will get more use and seat time out a stock cart....... but sometimes the fun is in the build and a few memorable rides.... which is why I have a big gasser and a big Electric cart sitting outside the shop but I jump on a stock cart to run to the neighbors house...... Enjoy.

Yes I love wrenching on anything with wheels and a motor. Or adding them to something that didn't come with them . I had been messing with one seater karts/buggies but wanted a two seater to take to swap meets, car shows, bike rallies.
