Electric Speed Bike Breaks Land Speed Record

Bensenville, IL – September, 2010 – The Orange County Chopper’s team has done it again. They have designed and built a bike that has broken the record for the fastest electric-powered drag bike in the world. Yes, we said “electric-powered” motorcycle. The historical accomplishment was recorded at Virginia Motorsports Park in Petersburg, VA on September 24, 2010.

The “Lawless Electric Drag Bike” was sponsored by Aaron Equipment Company and AEK Packaging. Larry “Spiderman” McBride piloted the 363 volt, 4000 amp electric bike to a 7.469 second ET, 177 MPH quarter mile pass breaking the 176 mph land speed record for a battery-powered motorcycle. The bike, which is owned by Shawn Lawless (owner of Lawless Industries) puts out over 600 horsepower, contains an electric DC drive system, a GE 13-inch Motor and 1,980 A123 battery cells.

The drag bike itself is unique in two ways: 1) its record-breaking speed; and 2) the eco-friendliness of the battery-operated power that generates that speed. Indeed, its series of rechargeable batteries creates in excess of 600 horsepower. As result, the Lawless Electric Drag Bike is transforming the typical weak and slow view of battery-operated power into one of strength and lightning quickness.

It’s fitting then that Aaron Equipment Company and AEK Packaging have been personally asked by Orange County Choppers to serve as two of the bike’s main sponsors. That invitation came partly as a result of the companies’ past relationship with the custom motorcycle manufacturer who unveiled the “Aaron Bike” in 2008. More importantly, however, it arose from what the bike represents. The two companies, which are industry leaders in providing new and used packaging and process equipment, are effecting a transformation of their own. Like the motorbike they’re sponsoring, they’re changing the way individuals think and feel about used equipment – as a viable alternative with a new standard of quality that’s both “greener” and more economical than new.

“The reason we sponsored the bike is that it reflects what we are about as a company,” explains KC Christensen of AEK Packaging. “We’re all about quality, speed and ‘going green’. We provide the highest quality used equipment in the industry because we have the same buying criteria as our customers do. At the same time, we offer the ‘fastest’ solution for our customer’s production needs and shortest time-to-market because all of our inventory is immediately available for shipment and doesn’t need to be rebuilt. Most new equipment takes 16 to 20 weeks for delivery and still has not been tested in a production environment. Because packaging changes so rapidly, we’ll even rent our equipment to companies only for the time they need it, and you can’t get any greener or economical than that. If you think about it…every plant in the world runs on used equipment!”

En la web sí es posible tener un conocimiento claro, especialmente dirigido y ante todo con referencias importantes de todo tipo sobre fruta planta ,  pastillas chinas y bajar peso como nos gusta mucho a los lectores. Es una fuente de información altamente recomendable, que me parece que debiera ir en directorios de Internet que se especializan específicamente en estos temas, y considero que esta clase de artículos incluso pueden realzar el interés por los mismos en los casos de personas neófitas.

You won't be scratching your head so much as doing your best to not die. The game makes much more sense and with the back story Rockstar gives the Warriors gang in the game, you appreciate the movie that much more. These types of video games can educate you on about a large array of interesting designs along with give an enhance for your frequent reflexive actions.
