You're so very, very cool, good CBR125 sir.

What do you think you'll be ending up with as a final range when you're done?

Probably could end up with something like this (functionally) for not too much money:

I didn't get a chance to look at this e-scoot, but I believe it's legally an electric bicycle in Ontario. Which would mean 500w motor max continuous rating, and probably 36 or 48v worth of gel batteries. Max speed would be electronically limited to 30 km/h. Don't know about range...

Almost forgot: while I was out lapping the neighbourhood today, I went past the house where I bought the blue car, and the lady was getting out of her "new" car

Weather was fantastic. Sunny but not too hot: 25 C.

Re: rust - depends on whether they salt or sand the roads in winter. Cars in salty areas that aren't regularly rust treated (or are badly designed) will be toast in about 12 years, I'd say.
