A friend of mine was just at the BUB all-motorcycle Salt Flats event, and said he saw a "sparky" electric motorcycle from the Bay Area. He said the driver was familiar with the Kostov motor I'm using in my conversion.

Anybody know who this is? More details would be appreciated. Please speak up if you are on this list! How fast did he (or she) go?

There are three that have been on the flats recently
(within the last 2 years) that I know of at this time.
If you look at the BUB attempt last year, that looks
like a Kostov motor with the "keepers of the Blue
flame." Max speed was 75mph. Its at the bottom of
the page with the list of runs from that time in one
of the links.

HI-
This might be Henry Deaton. He used to have a very fast electric bicycle
called "Sparky the Wonder Bike". FT.
