I came across this awesome electric motorcycle. The owner/builder will sell for $14,000. Looks nice. I would like to know how it performs.

28cell lithium (LiFePo), AC induction drive, Curtis AC drive controller, Zivan charger and of course all aluminum battery frames. All this packed into a 2000 Yamaha R1. This bike is currently running and registered with a clean California title. This bike is a prototype that does in fact work and run, however, there is NO WARRANTY!

He has another bike dubbed the R144:

144vdc,48cell Lithium, with a curtis 144vdc 550amp controller, running a 60kw series motor.
