    I'm pleased that it doesn't look like an homage to an infernal combustion powered machine, but the overall styling just lacks any pizzazz. Seems kinda generic maybe?

    I find the electrification of such an old “looking” vehicle odd. Why would someone simultaneously want to embrace the future while riding around in something that looks so much like the past?

    I looked into it a bit. The only close to usable reduction ratio in a shaft drive is the early Moto Guzzi at ~4.7:1. All others seem to hover around 3:1 which would require further gear reduction...

    Torque: shooting for ~85 ft/lbs, Power ~50 hp, & range ~40-50 miles. I’m trying to hit about 60% of what a newer used Zero sells for, but for a little less $$ & learn along the way too.

    Couple of questions for the more enlightened among us:
    1) If I use 13x Nissan Leaf cells, that would provide a more 80%-to-20% voltage of about 96vdc, yes? I want to make sure my thinking on this...
