Here's a project that caught our attention. After all, it's got a motorcycle powered by fruit.

The bike was a Triumph Daytona 675 motorbike that broke a speed record of 158.7 mph at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground. The interesting part of the project is that the fuel used to run the bike was ethanol obtained with basic equipment. So basic that it was made by students from the Prince William School in Oundle, Northamptonshire, UK in their A-levels Chemistry Lab. The bike was lightly modified by Bike magazine (just a remap of the fuel injection system) and provided for free by Triumph Motorcycles. Then the A-level students (equivalent to High School seniors in the U.S.) crushed and fermented 6,000 apples to obtain the ethanol.
