Lightweight Electric Motorcycle With Bamboo Frame

For our high school senior project, we have created a bamboo electric motorcycle. This project has been extremely fun, challenging, and time consuming; this is not something you can do over a few weekends. The end goal for us was to create a working motorcycle with a bamboo frame and an electric motor, as well as to create an Instructable.

The main stages for this project are:
Setting your goals for distance and speed and creating a budget.
Researching and ordering drive train parts.
Testing the drive train
Creating a model in SketchUp
Obtaining and heat treating your bamboo.
Hacking apart your donor bike
Tacking the frame together
Epoxy-ing the joints
Creating mounts and attaching the drive train.
Final parts and safety checks.
