I like this one I found on EV Album a lot.

I love the simplicity and lack of tank, it looks very lean and purposeful.

What are some of yours?

Sliding forward under heavy braking looks like it can be very painful.

It is named "black death". Seems appropriate.

Besides some of the great projects I found here on Elmoto, this Ninja really caught my eye and influenced my planning.

And this one showed that you really can cram a lot of batteries into a sport frame.....

I have ridden that crf250 and it is FUN. Can't wait to ride his new improved version! Almost same weight with 2x the battery and ALOT more power.....oh the fun.

Thanks Travis! That wins battery mounting of the year award!

I've been messing with ideas on how to mount Headways by the bolt holes for almost a year now... that's SWEET!

Also, the Kingston university TTXGP bike from 2009 is slick, uses lifebatt, but they're 38120S cells

Noah's built definitely ranks - it's just so clean (in terms of design/organization, not road grime - though that too).

Phil's Ninja, too, because it showed the motor/frame/controller combo I was looking at was viable.
