Lawless Electric Drag Bike
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 Kendell Packaging Equipment (AEK) and Aaron Equipment Company. 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.
