Vintage Electric Scrambler

Whether you like it or not, electric bikes are here to stay. That’s not just our opinion either. They’re growing in popularity and with their user-friendly, environmentally sound design, cater to a larger percentage of potential riders. Just ask Andrew Davidge, who in just four years went from building electric bikes out of his parents garage to owning his own company -Vintage Electric- in Silicon Valley complete with 15 employees and a global distribution network across both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

This particular build, called the Scrambler, is indeed based off the original petrol style and features a 702 watt-hour lithium battery as its power source, housed within a sand-casted aluminum battery box. On a full charge, riders enjoy a range of 35 miles and tops speeds of up to 40mph in Race Mode while Street Mode tops out at 20mph. Clearly they aren’t trying to break any land speed records here but rather to provide riders with a cheaper option for zipping around the neighborhood. It’s built upon a hydro-formed aluminum frame, boasts custom forks from MRP, a set of Schwalbe Black Jack tires that happen to be Kevlar-reinforced, and hydraulic disc brakes from Alfine. Also, since it was Vintage Electric that recently teamed up with Icon 4×4 for their E-Flyer, we’re fairly certain these bikes are of substantial quality. Available now for $6,995. [Purchase]
