Invention: Safe Electric Motorcycle
The 15 students in Mr. Mark Westlake's Co-Curricular Club came up with and built a safe electric motorcycle designed for urban commuters. This motorcycle will go 40+ miles on a single charge. The decided to build a reinforced cab, harness, and roll cage to protect the driver. By protecting the driver from the weather and other cars, the inventors hope it could find a market with urban professionals going to and from work. This club built a working model and included photos of the process, step by step. The final product has a very fun futuristic look that captures the imagination. I don't know about you, but I want one.
