Motorcycle racer and parts maker Mike Corbin's dream is electric, and it went into production this month. It's the Corbin Sparrow, a "personal transit module" with three wheels, one seat, an electric motor and an eye-poppingly curvaceous fiberglass body. Corbin, whose Corbin-Pacific Inc. in Hollister, about 90 miles southeast of San Francisco, is best known for its motorcycle seats, describes himself as a "niche hunter" pursuing a childhood dream of one day building a car.
