Junk made parts
After this, Prathamesh started collecting all those junk, which could be used to make them bikes. Since his father is an electrician himself, he got all the most important items from his father’s garage. After this, Prathamesh made 48 voltage Lid Acid Battery. Apart from this, he designed a 48-volt and 750-watt motor and an electric rechargeable motor.Help of internet
Speaking to News18, Prathamesh Sutara said, ‘In today’s time, fuel prices are skyrocketing and ordinary people cannot afford that much. Even after the lockdown, I remained at home. After school closed, I thought of doing something by myself. After this, with the help of my father, I designed an electric bike. For this, I also did some research on the Internet so that I could get the right information.
Spent only 25 thousand rupees
Prathamesh has spent only Rs 25,000 to build this bike. Compared to the price of electric bikes available in the market, it is very economical.
Prathamesh said, ‘Once charged, it gives a mileage of 40 km. The maximum speed of this bike is 40 kilometers per hour. There is also a special thing that this bike also has reverse gear.
Father’s chest widened with pride
Prakash Sutara says proudly of this achievement of his son, ‘I am very happy for my son because he used his free time for good work. Even after being an electrician, I did not know much about the electric bike mechanism myself. During this adventure, I got to learn a lot from my son too. I hope that one day it will do something big, so that we will be proud of it.
