John Surtees is the only man to win the Grand Prix world championship in both car and motorcycle in the same year. Here is his championship winning Ferrari being warmed up in preperation for a hot lap by Sir john himself.

 I have decided to dedicate this days page to electric bikes!

                        If you watched Cafe Racer TV then you will recognize this little number. Norton featherbed frame and electric power. I watched this bike humiliate normaly aspirated motorcycles on the track. Forced to start at the back of the grid, by the end of the second lap, it was in the lead!

                                                                       Enertia bike
While this bike is not electric, it is alternatively powered.

When I first saw this I loved it, then it was pointed out to me that I don't shave! I can't get past the fact that it looks like a Schick concept. Look at the mustache detail on the wheel pants, the scissor detail over the headlights, maybe a barber designed it.
Now this.....this is an electric bike that I could own!
