this is for sale on ebay, I just had to share...

I realize this is someone's pet project, and they undoubtedly are proud...

But I kinda snickered a bit...:):)

I wonder what the fuel tank is for.

Ohm my God!!
That is shocking.
I wonder what happens if it gets up to 88 mph? (<- who catches the movie reference)

I don't think it's all that bad for a garage built machine. The tank is prolly just for aesthetics.

Any of you guys build a better one?

Looks to me like it is the result of using too much acid!

I can't tell from looking at the picture but the bike looks like motor is used for strictly providing drive to the wheel. With the proper electronics and a charge controller he could recover some of the power while braking or going down hill and extend the maximum distance by quite a bit.

I give him props for what he has done so far, with a little bit of work he could get it to go a lot further.

Dang it I hate it when one favorite activity interferes with another. When I'm drinking I'm not riding and when riding I'm not drinking. O-well its better than way.

Considering the size of that tank I bet you could get a couple of Growlers in there!!

the fellow may be on the cutting edge and getting rich .
this from ABC NEWS : "
  • $4 million for electric motorcycle makers by expanding an existing green-energy tax credit for buyers of plug-in vehicles to include electric motorbikes.
*Note the price tags above reflect estimated forgone tax revenue if current credits – which have been due to expire – are extended for one year as included in the Senate bill, per Joint Committee on Taxation.
Read the entire Senate bill as passed. "

LOL
