DIY Electric Motorcycle Project

by Lennon Rodgers
Motivation: Breathing car fumes on my bicycle for a few too many years, and a life-long affection for motorcycles.

Challenge: To build a new stylish electric motorcycle that is practical for around-the-town driving, with a cost under $3,000 U.S., while only using new parts available on the internet.

Result: Below is my finished product. I call it eMoto.
