    Last summer I built an electric motorcycle. Its built on the frame of a 1987 honda cbr. It has 6 batteries for a total of 72volts. During my testing, it has a 0-60 time of 6 seconds, and a 0-40 time of 2.5 seconds. With the performace settings, it has about a 10 mile range. With the correct settings, it can get an estimated 20+ mile range.

    This would be a great commuter bike. It could be driven to work, charged (the on-board charger takes about 2hrs.), and then driven home.

    I do not have a title for the bike (thanks to our lovely DOT). However, everyone seems to have a friend-of-a-friend who can "get a title".

    I am currently in college and could use the money. I can email pics if anyone wants them. Feel free to make me an offer. like i said, i need the money so any offer will be seriously considered.

    Thanks, matt z
