Go bikers! They save the world!
The batteries were scavenged from my Autonomous Telepresence robot, Sparky. We purchased a new Perm132 motor, golf cart controller, charger and throttle from Electric Motorsport in the East Bay. The owner Todd is a builder and racer of electric motorcycles, so he was able to offer us great advice, especially helping to determine the correct gear ratio and spocket size. These components were not exactly inexpensive, but almost all the other materials were scrap, junk, or part of some other project, so ultimately the cost was reasonable.
Another website I might suggest is: http://ElectricMotorcycles.net
