Homemade Electric Motocycle Gets 300mpg

Yes, this homemade electric motorcycle gets the gas price equivalent of 127 km per litre. Yes, its speeds hit 65kph within its modest 24 km 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]
