Not ready for prime time, but headed there (does it wheelie)?

Those are cool. Very powerful. Word is that they fall way short of their range estimates, however.

You are likely correct. To me the first logical application is in the scooter market, although the fuel savings won't be as great there, so much larger cost of ownership price gap.

Trials bike pics

By popular demand, pics of my trials bike for sale. Montessa Cota 314r. Seems to be in good shape, but frankly I know nothing about trials bikes. I do know the tires are dry rotted and it needs a new kill switch. I have done nothing to this one but ride it a couple times and park it in the garage. Come get it for the ultra-low price of $1,000 American dollars.

Screaming sorority chicks were all over by my office today. Earplugs were essential.

My father was working on that before moving to TX. Never quite finished.

I saw one driving through town the other day. I'm guessing it was his as I doubt there are two running around NWA.
