actually i see a few possibilities using the Wimhurst Generator as a actual generator for the driving lights, still experimental as always, but this time i want to add it to one of the bikes and the Steampunk bike is the best choice for the job...

Dude, totally amazing! Once complete, are you going to tour it around? I mean it could be the center piece of an ebike show. Best for the completion!

im going to take it too as many car and bike shows that i can, and ride it as a daily commuter on sunny days - im really curious as to how the public is going to react. i know my other EV motorcycle gets a lot of attention, but this bike will definitely draw crowds.

i expect a lot of folks will be more of a, WTF was that attitude. it should be a lot fun to ride :)

Allenokc, you ever read terry pratchett disc world?the reason is your avatar I think is death and his grand daughter Susan, and if you ever get a chance see if you can find the book or the animated tv series called soul music, death rides a bike that looks a lot like the one you are building. Keep up the great work and as the orangutang says ook !
