Taking old materials and making them into something brand new and completely eco-efficient it is exactly what Purdue University student Tony Coiro did with his 1978 Suzki motorcycle. Costing only a mere $50 at the time of purchase, over $2,500 was spent on the redesign and retrofitting of the bike.

This one-of-a-kind motorbike after its transformation can now go 24 miles per charge and a top speed of 45 mph -- all powered by solar energy. With this Tony Coiro breakthrough technology, the Purde EV Club is set to patent and commercialize its unique designs. Stats for Scrap Metal Eco Bikes Trending: Older & Mild
