Madeira Gravity Battery Timelapse
Having obtained a Yamaha 125 motorbike from the scrap yard, the first task involves removing the easily accessed, unneeded components from the motorbike: Seat, exhaust, fuel tank, handlebars, forks, front wheel, wiring harness, brakes, suspension components and fluids.
See our guide for the complete step-by-step build.
With the majority of the components removed, the frame is the next target for reduction.
The exhaust manifold and fuel delivery and ignition systems are removed along with the cylinder head and piston, leaving just the connecting rod attached to the crankshaft.
