All I wanted was an Electric Cruiser...

So many people had a hand in completing this 2+ year project.
Anthony Hobbs/Flying Machine Bikes, initial design, frame, fork, rack & handlebar fabrication.
Mark Deezy, Sutter St. Cruisers, general system/mechanical integration, paint, powder coating, E-Hub wheel lacing & E-bike assembly, final design & guidance.
Aaron Goss, Aarons Custom Cycles, Brooks saddle retrofitting, frame & spring powder coating, copper rivets.
Doug Daut, Electric Bike Solutions, 1300W front hub motor, custom dual 52V battery setup.
Babouy Bulanadi, Custom LED headlight

I was responsible for the wood tank insert, Brooks saddle dye job, overall design & concept.

At eight feet long & 108lbs. it's no lightweight, but will get up to 26mph. on flat roads & is comfy as all hell to ride!
