Yes, this homemade electric motorcycle gets the gas price equivalent of 300 miles per gallon. Yes, its speeds hit 40mph within its modest 15 mile range. And yes, the engine runs silently with zero vibration. But don't blame the auto companies. They work really hard. And besides, with their limited resources, how can they be expected to compete with one guy who has limited mechanical training buying all of his parts on Craigslist? [hellforleather via bbgadgets]
