I came into this project because a friend showed me a website showing
home-built electric vehicles. I thought to myself "hm... I bet I can
do that," which is usually the start to many hours of work. With
basic knowledge of electrical systems, a lot of reading, and a
surprisingly small amount of trial and error, I ended up with a
working electric motorcycle and couldn't be happier.
