seussvilleIn honor of Theodore Seuss Geisel, or “Dr. Seuss“, who would be 105 today I offer up what can only be described as a motorcycle for the people of Seussville!

Mr. Geisel was an American writer and cartoonist, most widely known for his children’s books written under his pen name.  He published over 60 children’s books, which were often characterized by colorful characters and rhyme. 

Some of his notable books include the bestselling Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

stthomasRegardless if you love-or-hate the motorcycle – you can certainly appreciate that the project was from a bunch of high school kids.  

Designed by students at the Saint Thomas Academy Experimental Vehicle Team with the help of a $10,000 InvenTeams grant from the Lemelson-MIT program (among other donations), the motorcycle hums along courtesy of a battery-driven Briggs and Stratton ETEK electric motor. The abomination can scoot about for 40 miles and reach 60 miles-per-hour.  There’s even a GPS unit thrown in to keep the rider headed in the correct direction. I’m sure Dr. Seuss is smiling down on the design and chanting something like…

“I’m ready to ride a bike, yes I am…A green one at that, with eggs and ham”
