    Slick is the word I was gonna use to describe it too! Great job, I bet it is fun to ride.

    Very nice, shades of a board tracker.
    If you think you can't do it, you're right!

    A cafe racer needs Clip-on's. I talked to your Chiropractor, and he agreed with me.

    Nice build

    What's the display, some form of charge indicator? Or is it a throttle position?

    Looks amazing! Like a scram-jet bike.
    People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

    Thanks for the interest. The display is battery voltage which gives you some idea of the remaining run time. Top speed is 28 mph on level ground. That is too fast!
    I did build it in a Scram-jet configuration but I am having trouble getting it up to operating speed. Every time I hit 88 mph, I go back in time to the beginning of the thread...



    I may need to turn off the flux capacitor...

    Don't let the feds know you are developing flux capacitors or trump will put a sanction on your popcorn supply..... That bike looks sweet!
