Hi all.
This is my first ever post on anything like this.
I have 1 and a half C5s. One I have converted to 24v with the Porter 5 controller (only i melted the gearbox. so i am waiting for the upgrade part).
I will post some photos of it very soon.

Thanks Area 51
It still needs a bit of tidying up though.
But to be honest I just looked on here and used a lot of ideas from Chas.
I have a three speed Sturmey Archer hub to install.
