I soldered the last circuit last night and plugged everything in. Turned on the switches. The LED on the controller blinked green and red. I twisted the throttle. Nothing happened. I recycled all the switches. Still nothing.

I turned everything off and went into the house to look at the wiring diagram again. When I came out, the controller light glowed steady green. I turned the switches back on and twisted the throttle. The chain whirred, the rear wheel rolled. Success!

So — I have to wait for the controller to boot.

Road test tonight.

No new photos because the bike is an ugly mess of cables and fuses and wires, all looping around the controller and motor. I need to get this snake nest cleaned up and properly insulated. Also need to bolt on a kick stand, headlamp and tail-light.
