Global climate change is a very large problem facing the new generation. This means that from now on people will have to change the way they live in order to help deal with this growing problem. One of the major causes of the climate change is thought to be the carbon dioxide that is released from burning petroleum based fuels like in gasoline automobiles.
The purpose of this project is to convert small vehicles that are used frequently, such as motorcycles, over to electric to help slow the release of carbon dioxide and thereby slowing the global climate change.
This project is focused on the final goal of converting a gasoline motorcycle that will be used for local commuting with a range near 20 miles. This will also be based on the assumption that this will not be the primary vehicle for the end user. It will be a vehicle for daily commuting or short trips.
