    Black duct tape covering the batteries. Works a lot better than it looks :)
  4. That crank/footrest is cool. But when you pedal,won't it get in the way?

    that's a tough looking e-motoredbike...really nice :)
  6. I can see some bits of a dirt bike 'shell' would look very cool to cover the batteries there.

    Pedaling at 50mph would actually slow me down due to added aero drag compared to the extra 0.25hp a person can comfortably add. If I want to pedal around at low speeds, the foot pegs unscrew in a few seconds.

    Ideally the pegs would be farthur back and foldable, but I didn't want to TIG weld on to the aluminum frame.

    The black stuff is like what they put over prototype cars for road testing. Skunk works, anyone?

    Ya, Skunk Works. You have something hidden under there. That thing would flap in the wind if you rode it. You have Mat Huges hidden under there with a seperate set of cranks.
  12. I see now why you posted the first two picks. Those batteries tuck up in there rather nicely.
    Yea,if you had covers over them it would simply look like a bicycle with covers and a huge rear drum brake.
    That's stealth if I ever did see one.
    I want to know too. 50 mph?

    Best speed on about a 3-4% downhill was 99.7km/h. On flat ground, 91km/h. Both of those speeds were with the fairing on. Round trip average speeds of 60km/h are typical depending on traffic.
