    I have talked to several experimenters that buy a wrecked "Zero" motorcycle and use all of the electric system.
    There was an article in Kitplanes a few months ago, I think a motorglider fitted with a "Zero" electric system.

    Dale Kramer of Lazair fame has a kit for that aircraft. I believe there is another one, Thundergull? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eYIfGGk2yg

    rkirk --- You can also contact SunFlyer. I think they are based in Colorado. They have a propulsion system that they have been putting in Arion Lightning airframes for flight schools. Supposedly a 1 hour endurance with reserve.
