Genset mounting2818 viewsLeft side view of the genset rack. If I decide to continue using this setup, I'll probably rebuild the rack to look a LOT nicer, and paint it to match the Sparrow.
Rather than having a generator, I'd like to put about 2KWH worth of some lightweight battery in the rack. I just need more range to make it to work.

Version 1 Genset Rack3716 viewsThis one was nice in that the Sparrow "rear panel" would just slide into the tubes. Just had to extend the wiring to reach.
The problem was that with all the weight of me and Genset, it would bottom out when going over big bumps.
