The SparkyCycle is an electric motorcycle built from a Yamaha 400 that had a blown engine.
I stole the idea from a friend of mine, Dan Conine, who made one from a dirt bike.
The original engine was used for gearing and clutch, but the crankshaft was replaced with an electric motor for power.
The jugs and tank were replaced with a car battery.
The concept works well, however, the motor I used was too underpowered,
and the bike to heavy. I've since swapped out the motor for a 8HP gas motor I picked up at a garage sale -
makes for an interesting "scooter".
