    Since I'm in the market for a Zero Motorcycle I have been reading their site's every page. When I read their 10 years of history I was taken back by their very first offering since its power train was the same that I fabricated in 2005.

    I saw the Etek motor and it brought back memories of my creation. Too bad I built mine as a scooter and not dirt bike.

    My range back then was 6 miles, but those were fun. Joined up with a racing minibike group as the only electric and by my 2nd year they handicapped me with a 50 mile long event in Arizona on Route 66. A 6 mile range wasn't going to cut it so a trailer was built to carry (6) 8 volt golf cart batteries to supplement my (4) Odyssey 680 AGMs. That poor Etek had to move a 110 lb scooter, 220 lb rider and tow a 450 lb battery trailer, but did with no issues.
