Check battery terminals. They must be clean and tight. Also check the negative cable where it connects to the frAme and motor.

This is common problem when the battery cable(s) - or + corrode & "wick" the corrosion through the inside of the cable. Bending them in the middle to see if they are stiff & crunch is a sure sign.
