Electric Drag Bike Breaks Quarter-Mile Record Again

by AaronEquipmentCo22. November 2010 11:27

Newburgh — Orange County Choppers announced Oct. 7 that it has broken the previously held quarter-mile record for a battery-powered motorcycle.

The historic accomplishment was recorded at Virginia Motorsports Park near Petersburg, Va., Sept. 24. Legendary drag racer Larry "Spiderman" McBride rode the 363-volt, 4,000-amp electric bike to a 7.469-second, 177 miles per hour quarter-mile pass, shattering the existing world record of 7.82 seconds at 168 mph.

The Lawless Electric Drag Bike was featured in an episode of "American Chopper" Oct. 7 on TLC. The Lawless Electric Drag bike is sponsored by AEK Packaging and Aaron Equipment Co., both based in Bensenville, Ill. The bike puts out more than 600 horsepower, and contains an electric DC Drive System and a GE 13-inch motor with a double Zilla controller.

The team running the electric drag bike at Virginia Motorsports Park got in elapsed times of 8.02, 7.57, 7.50 and 7.46. Speeds at the quarter-mile were 159, 163, 172, 174 and 177 mph. The team says that a speed of 200 mph is quite possible with this bike once they manage to find more horsepower to put to the pavement.

Coincidentally, this isn't the first time that OCC broke the record. The first attempt was on Aug. 29 at Quaker City Raceway in Salem, Ohio, where the team registered 7.77 seconds at 165 miles per hour. And this isn't the last record OCC and Lawless Industries are hoping to break. Next up is the current land speed record for an electric motorcycle set at 179 mph in September at the famous Bonneville Salt Flats in northwestern Utah.

"I'm proud to say that as a company that with the Lawless Electric Drag Bike we were able to break the same world record twice," said Paul Teutul Sr. "And we look forward to what's next with the bike."

"The entire experience of this build, from the planning and building with the OCC crew, to breaking the world record at the track, was incredibly positive and rewarding. I look forward to future ventures with this first-class team," said Shawn Lawless, CEO of Ohio-based Lawless Industries.

The sooner you begin making a plan and figuring out how a lot cash you will need the extra profitable you will be. India consists of some excellent historical regions to all kind of natural landscapes and excellent man-made monuments too. Everyone tweaks a word here and there in scripts and this one is no different.
