Kickstarter - a history of electric motorcycles

Inside EV's writer, EVMC2 blogger, and all-round EV good-guy, Ted Dillard, is writing a book on the history of electric motorcycles. It's probably the right time to do it, just before the big players start to come out with some of their own creations.

He needs to raise $10k to cover publishing costs, paying photographers, conducting research, and to take 6 months off to write it. It's pretty cool because the Australian electric bikes, and in particular the eFXC racing series gets it's own chapter! It's fair to say we punch above our weight down under.

Anyway, I reckon it will be a real gem - he's a great writer and it will be full of fascinating stories and nuggets of knowledge. There's something a book offers that a screen can't offer.

Please chip in if you can - it's going to be the first major book documenting the development and progress of electric motorbikes, and should be a real collectors item in years to come!
