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.
