Battery box »BattBoy HM5 Type« by Bates

Item №

Modern gel or Li-Ion batteries offer a significant advantage - they are leak-proof. Those who ever experienced spilled acid in their horseshoe oil tanks will highly appreciate this fact. On the other hand, owners of classic bikes do like the looks of their original energy store and the corresponding cover and mounts. With a Bates BattBoy Battery Box you can have the best of both worlds, because what looks like a period type HM5 6V accumulator on the outside can house a safe, modern battery within. Just hook it with two eyelet wires to the terminals on the bottom of the lid and you are all set. Perfect for 6 to 12 volts electrical system conversions, too. When using suitable Antigravity versions you even have some storage room left for a few small spare parts, safety vest, Cuban cigars, etc. Ain´t this one heck of a cool solution for an old problem?

Yeah, there is stuff out there that almost looks like the real thing and costs way less. Not here at W&W CYCLES, though. If you feel like supporting product pirates rather than the originators and makers of high quality parts for your bike, fine with us. We're gonna stick with the real thing.
