Currie Technologies e-Zip E750 Electric Scooter (Red)
Go the distance with ease and speed when you hop aboard the e-Zip 750 Electric Scooter from Currie Technologies, which features both a deck for standing and a removable seat for comfort on longer rides. When you need to go a farther distance than a comfortable walk, the e-Zip 750 will get you there and back quickly thanks to its 12-mile range (depending on rider weight) and top speed of 15 MPH. With increased power of its Currie Electro-Drive system with 750 watts of power matched to a shock absorbing front suspension, it's the perfect choice for serious personal transportation. Other features include an easy on/off seat, folding handlebars for easy trunk stowage, 12.5-inch Street Slick tires, 24-volt/12-ampere-hour Plug & Play rechargeable battery pack, and a Currie Smart battery charger. This scooter is for ages 13 and up, with a maximum rider weight of 260 pounds.
Bike of the Century
Honda of Japan introduced the CB750 motorcycle to the US and European markets in 1969 after experiencing success with their smaller motorcycles. The bike was targeted directly at the US market after Honda officials (including Soichiro Honda himself) repeatedly met with US dealers and understood the opportunity for a larger bike. Under development for a year, the CB750 offered two unprecedented features, a front disc brake and a straight-4 engine with an overhead camshaft, neither of which was previously available on a mainstream, affordable production bike. These two features, along with the introductory price of $1495.00 (US), gave the CB750 a considerable advantage over its competition, particularly its British rivals. Cycle Magazine called the CB750 "the most sophisticated production bike ever" upon its introduction. Cycle World called it a masterpiece, highlighting Honda's painstaking durability testing, the bike's 120 mph top speed, the fade-free performance of the braking, the comfortable ride and excellent instrumentation. The CB750 was the first modern four-cylinder machine from a mainstream manufacturer, and the term Superbike was coined to describe it. The bike offered other important features that added to its compelling value: electric starter, kill switch, dual mirrors, flashing turn signals, easily maintained valves and overall smoothness and freedom from vibration both underway and at a standstill; later models ('91 on) included maintenance-free hydraulic valves. On the other hand, the bike was difficult to get on its center stand and tended to throw chain oil onto its muffler. Unable to gauge demand for the new bike accurately, Honda limited its initial investment in the production dies for the CB750 by using a technique called permanent mold casting (often erroneously referred to as sandcasting) rather than diecasting for the engines – unsure of the bike's reception. The bike remained in the Honda lineup for ten years, with sales totaling over 400,000 in its life span. The CB750 is sometimes referred to as a Universal Japanese Motorcycle or UJM, although certainly the bike has earned notoriety of its own. The Discovery Channel ranked the Honda CB750 third among the top ten greatest motorbikes of all time. WIKIPEDIA This is a small piece of the puzzle.
Bike'n Trikes @ O'Connell Street in Dublin, Ireland, our love, weekend - 28/03/2010 - enjoy the evolution on wheels with fun and grace! Magic in the heart of the irish capital!:)
A tricycle (often abbreviated to trike) is a three-wheeled vehicle. While tricycles are often associated with the small three-wheeled vehicles used by pre-school age children, they are also used by adults for a variety of purposes. In the United States and Canada, adult-sized tricycles are used primarily by older persons for recreation, shopping, and exercise. In Asia and Africa, tricycles are used primarily for commercial transportation, either of passengers in pedicabs, or of freight and deliveries. Human-powered trikes are usually powered by pedals, although some models have hand cranks. Motorized trikes can be powered with a variety of methods, including motorcycle engines, smaller automatic transmission scooter motors, and electric motors. The term "tricycle" may or may not include motorized Three Wheeled Cars, depending on local laws. BY WIKIPEDIA! ENJOY!!:)
electric bike engines
The internal combustion engine that powers the modern automobile has changed very little from its initial design of some eighty years ago. Unlike many high tech advances, engine design still depends on an understanding of basic fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. This text offers a fresh approach to the study of engines, with an emphasis on design and on fluid dynamics. Professor Lumley, a renowned fluid dynamicist, provides a lucid explanation of how air and fuel are mixed, how they get into the engine, what happens to them there, and how they get out again. Particular attention is given to the complex issue of pollution. Every chapter includes numerous illustrations and examples and concludes with homework problems. Examples are taken from the early days of engine design, as well as the latest designs, such as stratified charge gasoline direct injection engines. It is intended that the text be used in conjunction with the Stanford Engine Simulation Program (ESP). This user-friendly, interactive software tool answers a significant need not addressed by other texts on engines. Aimed at undergraduate and first-year graduate students, the book will also appeal to hobbyists and car buffs who will appreciate the wealth of illustrations of classic, racing, and modern engines.
