After working on various electric vehicles for 4 years (snowmobile & MHRT) a friend and colleague of mine suggested we use the batteries from his masters to manufacture an electric motorcycle as a fun summer project. The high tech batteries were later replaced with  a set of commercially available batteries. The name for the bike came from a type of special electrical wiring that we though sounded awesome. Unfortunately the Quebec government found plenty of ways to prevent me from ever registering the bike for road use.
