2017 Unique, fabulous eBike based on 1900 Harley style For Sale
Fabulous and unique "e-bike" retro cruiser electric bicycle. A no-expense-spared custom build incorporating top quality components, innovative engineering and best-of-British craftsmanship.
This bike was originally conceived as a one-off engineering project to re-create the look and feel of the very first Harley and Indian motorcycles (which were based around bicycle components). Like the original Harley and Indian bikes, this is a very stylish and eye-catching machine. The riding position is supremely comfortable and the unique suspension provides an elegant, effortless feel on the road. Steering is precise and relaxed due to the wide cruiser handlebars and fat comfort grips. Acceleration is stately and turbine-smooth, but you can nevertheless reach quite impressive speeds - hence the powerful disk brake at the back and the dutch-style hub brake at the front. Given that the bike tends to attract crowds wherever it goes, the ability to take off smartly using electric power is quite handy....
This amazing bike has sophisticated electronics allowing for USB connections to the motor to configure it to suit riding preferences. It also has LED lights front and back (with USB connection). A quality phone holder is located on the handlebars and the bike has both an integrated speaker box and a rear mount to allow a bluetooth speaker to be played whilst riding (a top-of-the-range "Ultimate Ears" bluetooth speaker is included with the bike). The front and rear saddlebags are very handy for shopping, wallets, phones - and also provide storage for a heavy-duty security lock.
Electric motor drive is via the proven and impressive 1000 watt "Magic Pie 2". Battery power comes from the centrally-mounted 36v 11Ah BMI lithium battery (charging system included). A spare battery is also included - which can be mounted on the rear rack to extend range is required. The sophisticated "Magic Pie" motor can be re-configured for either 36v or 48v operation using the USB interface (the 48v option releases significantly more power).
Power is controlled through the twistgrip on the right-hand handlebar-end (which also incorporates traffic-light-style battery power level indicators). Only 7 gears are appropriate with this kind of motor, but it is worth noting that the bike can be ridden like a normal bicycle without electric assistance if desired. Easy to ride, great fun and utterly practical too !
The unique frame and layout provides flexibility for people of a variety of sizes to set up the bike to suit their particular preferences. It has been ridden by riders of 5'6" and also by riders of over 6' and so far, everyone has found it comfortable and a blast to ride !
No other electric bike has this much glamour, elegance or genuine vintage appeal. It attracts a lot of interest across all age ranges - everyone loves it ! People especially love the fact that it is the only one in the world and that it is both old and new at the same time.
The bike was built over a period of one year and was completed just over a year ago. Since then, it has had very light use (ridden about a dozen times).
Thousands of pounds were spent on the build and hundreds of hours of labour went into the creation and development of this one-of-a-kind bike. It has been carefully stored in a warm, dry garage and polished on a regular basis. There are very few blemishes (very minor paintwork blemishes on the frame and slight tarnishing on a couple of the decorative plastic elements, but the overall condition is terrific (see photos) and will attract huge attention wherever you go.
Spares and upgrades are readily available for the motor, battery and the electrical system.
Routine servicing can be carried out by any competent cycle mechanic as the the core cycle components are all from well-known brands. A technical specification manual can be provided.
This fabulous electric bike is now reluctantly for sale to make way for the next project. So this is your chance to acquire a unique retro-style, cruiser e-bike that looks vintage, but is actually based on modern technology and the very best of British engineering ingenuity. And it is the only one of it's kind in the world. It will go down a storm at retro, vintage, custom and bike festivals - or just riding round town.
Serious buyers are welcome to inspect the bike by arrangement (location North Hampshire, UK).
