Weird and Terrifying

In the always weird and terrifying Craig’s List world, this might be the weirdest yet, solidly belonging in the WTF? category.

New Picture

That's at least 300 pounds in just the batteries! Bet it handles like shit.

I'm trying to imagine getting out from under all of that battery acid in a tipover. You could be naked and more than a little uncomfortable, even if you fell over parking that thing, in about the time it takes to say, "How come I'm soaked? It's not raining."

The picture is blurry, but it does say 'gel battery' on them, so no acid spillage.

I've seen a couple of Goldwing conversions over the years, but mostly the early 'naked' versions.

This one is an example of the 'travelling science project' look that I hated so much and despite being such a vast bike, the builder has had to but two batteries in the absolute worst position up in the top-box.

If you want to see many more bad examples, plus a few good ones, then check ot the EValbum;

At least that's something.

There are some interesting examples of engineering on that page. Thanks Paul.
