I have played around with sound effects on an iPod playing through a sound system on an electric motorcycle.

Wonder if I could get some TRON motorcycle sound effects that would play?

ug... too tired to blog.

Instead, you can follow THIS LINK to see photos of what I did today and YOU can try to figure it all out!

My new buddy Stefan stopped out again today to lend a hand. It's him you see in the photos.

The cycle is now rolling and looking pretty darn good!

Yeah, I'll be fine.

The big thing is to design/build the chain guard and re-do that bad battery bracket weld!

A hand with the wire harness in the future would be great!

Ben, that looks great! You've done a brilliant job on this bike, and a high five to anyone that helped is in order.

If they're going to look like this in the future, I'm sure you could sell one or two.

I like high-visibility. The yellow is eye-catching.

I do NOT believe that "loud pipes save lives" - but having a "loud" color couldn't hurt anyways!

You'll also notice that I have reflective lightning bolts on my helmet! (They didn't have yellow helmets at the store when I was shopping....)

The ligntning bolts on your helmet are a nice touch. It would be cool to have them light up when you're accelerating.

"If loud pipes save lives, imagine what would happen if you learned to ride that thing?"

LOL.

"It's a shame you spent all your money on that bike, and couldn't afford a helmet and some proper gear..."
