    Looks like it won most innovative at the Quail. The higher resolution photos show off the details better, but I'm interested in the specs.

    It looks like the whole powertrain/frame of an Alta with a vintage fork and a rear tube frame grafted on. Clever and well executed.

    Looking through the slide show and thought, wow, they really cleared up space in the rear triangle area - I wonder how they accomplished that. Then I noticed the pack peeking out of the fairing in...

    Isn't that what the hollow swingarm was for?:)

    The gas reservoir in the frame leaves a very tiny area for batteries or whatnot. If I was going to do a Buell now I'd look for an early tube frame...

    Had the opportunity to use a Buell chassis as a donor bike, but I couldn't wrap my head around the full tank frame in an electric conversion. Love his crazy ideas, though.

    Race organizations are often associations of manufacturers. Honda/Kawi/Yamaha/KTM etc. don't want to lose races to electric bikes until they have something to sell in that space. If Alta (or other...

    Regen set ups

    Some discussion of regen came up on the electric throttle thread. In an attempt to keep things ~somewhat~ organized around here, I thought I'd start a new one.
