Looking at a road trip to IN to pick this up for $250.00, anything I need to know before I buy?   It will be my first electric horse.

Get there as soon as possible.

Let the owner know you are on the way.

Don't stop for lunch....you can eat on the way home.

Does this take a standard 12v Marine deep cycle battery?

I think it takes three of them,  36 volts.

It takes 6 batteries, so 6 volts each? 

 

Where do you get your batteries and what is the cost?

Yes, 6 batteries, 6 volts each. I can't tell you the cost but they aren't cheap. The same batteries that most electric golf carts use. :)

I'm swring the batteries are 90-150+ each.  Anyone know if you could use 3 12 volt batteries?

i would think you can, same voltage and all. only difference i would guess is the amp hours, more batteries more/longer go

Well,  I have it home.   I'm hoping to resurrect the batteries by desulfation.  I want to do a full restoration,  and collect impliments for it.  I know this will be a slow process as it is my first and my bill fold isn't nearly as full as some.   Here are some pictures.   I have included the serial number plate in hopes someone can shed some light on the history of this machine. 

 

Cheers!

:text-coolphotos:                 Those poor battery boxes sure do take a beating.

Yes,  the back panel on the rear box needs to be replaced entirely.   

 

 On a side note I'm kind of thinking about painting it GE yellow on one half and wheel horse red on the other worth a half GE logo wheel horse logo in the round spot on the grill.
