With electric vehicles on the rise, many people are steering away from the classic combustion engine. To keep with this theme, we have decided to convert a gas powered motorcycle into an electric one. There are a select few companies who have started manufacturing electric motorcycles. We wanted to add our own twist and incorporate the ability to trailer a solar charging station for the convenience of the rider. This would extend the limited range of our motorcycle to help with any long distance needs the driver might have. We plan on keeping our budget low to make it a cheap consideration for people getting into the electric vehicle community. To raise funds we plan on using a combination of crowdfunding and finding corporate sponsors. The end goal of our project is to make a cheap electric motorcycle that will be able to get power from the sun and easily recreated by the average person.
