Going for a land speed record is a right of passage for any new technology, and electric vehicles are no exception. No matter how advanced propulsion systems get, mankind's genetic-level need for speed requires that it be pushed to its absolute limit to see just how fast it can go. Former BMX champ Shea Nyquist is building his own electric motorcycle and aiming for a streamliner world record with it, called the Lark Streamliner. Nyquist's home-built frame has a massive wheelbase for high-speed stability and weighs around 1,700 pounds — and has done 80 MPH at 10% throttle in testing. Even for an athlete used to balancing on two wheels, riding the bike has required every bit of skill he can muster. Check out his YouTube channel to watch the project as it develops.
