The creators of this contraption could sure use some lessons in industrial design from Apple, or even the creators of the first generation Zune for that matter. However part of the beauty of this bike is that you can actually modify the design since you build it yourself. Atomic Zombie sells the plans for $14.99 online. You then track down the necessary parts, practice your welding skills and bolt in some batteries. The three-battery design shown has a 62 mile range. You could easily modify the design of the frame to accommodate different batteries or even equal sized wheels. It's not pretty but it will get you where you're going quietly and cleanly. You can check out a video of the LongRanger in action after the jump.
