48V Electric Flat Tracker

Bikes Energy & Sustainability Fun & Games

This is one of the better DIY electric rides that I have come across. It’s an amazing 48-Volt, 15 horsepower, bike that uses a Briggs and Stratton Etek motor. It looks like it’s a very smooth ride. However, at those speeds I would suggest using a motorcycle helmet. What a great project!

About a year ago, my dad and I had the idea to convert a beach cruiser bike into an electric motorcycle. We purchased the bike and all the parts necessary and got to work. We modified the frame and rebuilt the bike from the ground up. When we finished, we were extremely satisfied with the results – a 48 volt, 15 horsepower board track racer.

      Yes, I agree, but compared to electric motorcycles…it’s a bargain.
