Lightbulb PMS3 - Pimp My Segway™ ]|[

Ok, Starting the photo library

Justin brought me a handlebar that was not working, but he cut it in half,
I replaced the broken guts and used that as my base for my new handlebar

First thing I decided was that I needed a Horn;

So I added a 'horn' button


Here is the base


Since I was planning on running a touchscreen / navigation / !!!
thru the handlebar I decided i needed ROOM to pass 'many cables'



And I wasnt kidding here is the wiring that I am passing thru the handlebar!



More to come

Jonathan

Looking cool! That is a crap ton of wiring you are passing through!!!

I think i will also try to do some pimping during the winter - but probably not of the grandeur of your pimping...

We will see

Thanks for your inspiration, and looking forward to seeing more and more and more!!!

Cool Post 2000!!!!!!

yup - 30 wires AND the segway set of controls.

It was a major feat to be able JUST to pass the cables thru everything.

BUT I GOT IT!!

muhahahahahahahahahah

(sick, aint I)

Lightbulb More Pictures..

Well Work continues..

I built a special base, so I can work on the handlebar



I started soldering and attaching wires


[note segway mode switch on right being used as a horn button ]

Here are some shots of me testing the GPS Interface


Here is the back side

[note the quick release clamps, to remove the unit]

And here are the interface cables


I mentioned before that the battery fits inside the 25.0 bag,
check this out!



Is that Sweet or WHAT???

Cool Trademarked?

Great job!

By the way, your thread title says "Pimp My Segway", and that it's trademarked. That's funny, I can find no record that the phrase was ever trademarked. So, I just applied for it!!! Just kidding Jon....

If you're serious about protecting the phrase you should have it trademarked. Using the 'TM' improperly is a no no....

I see the Garmin GPS reciever... but are you adding other info. or touch screen commands?

Hopefully Segay will release the mounting bracket for the i2 so I don't need to make one. Then I'll add my Tomtom 910 GPS and some Whelen LED warning lights. Post pics when it's done!

Jon,

I apologize. I looked up the law and you are absolutely right. I stand corrected sir. I learned something new today! Thanks...

CT,
Did you see this alternative to the Segway mount that Isidore found? I got two of the small ones and it seems pretty sturdy.
