An Inspirational DIY Electric Motorcycle

With all the talk and hype about going and being green, I'm surprised that companies the size of Harley Davidson and Kawasaki weren't able to do what this 22-year-old college student did in just two months.

Tom Miceli built the Ion during his final year at Appalachian State University. He studied industrial design, and his senior project required him to create something that reflected all he’d learned. Given his love for getting from Point A to Point C while passing Point B in a blur, his choice for a project was a no-brainer.

"I wanted something eco-friendly that didn’t sacrifice performance," Miceli told

I'll stop talking and give you a chance to see this for yourself. The first video is the finished product --The ION electric bike that Miceli built in two months. The second video is how he made it. Simply put, it is amazing and inspirational.
