DIY electric car article on me

Hey guys,

A blogger/writer stopped out at my house last week for an interview.

Here's the article he wrote!
Fomenting Revolt | Cars In Depth

Yep, the wiring in the Electro-metro still looks crazy, although I ASSURE you it all works correctly and has fuses in all the right places...

Also, the article makes it sound like the Open Revolt controller was all my idea! Not true! LOTS of people contributed to the project, but Paul Holmes was definately the mastermind!

Great work you have done.
I really dig your electric motorcycle,it looks reasonable for the average backyard mechanic to build and would be a fun useful city bike. How many miles do you get out of the batteries?
I am thinking you gain more electric miles per watt in a electric motorbike over a electric car then a normal motorcycle's mileage improvement over a car.


Save gas
Ride a Mtn bike for errands exercise entertainment and outright fun
