How much??? Don't ask

Lost track of the expenses for this creation. Went with a 1300W front hub motor with dual 52V batteries wired in parallel just because the frame already weighed 78lbs. With motor, batteries, ECU &...

Electra Tall Frame

I stumbled onto the Tall/XL frame Electra C1 a few years ago, its only available in a single speed but I've since swapped that out for a SA 3 spd. setup.

I've made a few other "changes" to the...

Powder Coating is your friend

Granted I'm coming from the custom beach cruiser community but EVERY bike I've built or designed for a customer has always ended up at the powder room or paint shop. A road bike should never cost...

E-Bike or Cruiser?

It started out as just an addition to the cruiser quiver until I realized that pedaling a 65lb. stretch custom cruiser up the street to my house was not gonna happen.

The stats. 1300W front hub...

Monark Springer on Electra

Purely for the sake of comfort had a custom fork made up for the old Electra C1 by Anthony Hobbs. Might weigh 12lbs. more but...don't skip leg day!

Cheating???

All they need to do is see an 8' long, almost 85lb. steel framed beast & they nod their heads in approval. 1300W front hub motor with dual 52V battery setup will still only get you 14-17mph.
