This E-Bike by Harley Davidson is the Sixties Kind of Cool
The pandemic has certainly helped make cycling cool again and this latest creation by Harley Davidson is definitely something that the hip kids wouldn’t mind being seen riding.
Yes, if you haven’t heard, Harley is now making bicycles, electric ones. Earlier this year, they revealed their first two production e-bikes, MOSH and RUSH, under their offshoot brand, Serial 1. Priced between US$3,000 to US$5,000, they are not what you’d be getting your kids when they start to learn how to ride, but what you’d get yourself for commuting around the city and wanting a little boost from the battery and motor.
The MOSH/CHOPPER, however, is not available off the rack. It is the first bicycle under Serial 1’s 1-OFF custom series as the company auctions off a custom one-of-its-kind e-bike model a few times a year.
The MOSH/CHOPPER has all the features and functionality of the MOSH/CTY, including the maintenance-free Gates Carbon Drive belt, a mid-mounted Brose motor, hydraulic disc brakes, internally routed cables and wires, and integrated lighting.
What makes it unique from the MOST/CTY is clearly the sixties aesthetics, with a low banana seat that has a sissy bar to lean against and high handlebars for a relaxed arm position, which means this bike was made for cruising…and doing wheelies.
How much would you part with for this unique bicycle? Well, someone thought it was worth US$14,200 as the auction closed with that as the highest bid. AND the winner had to pay the shipping cost. Someone must have liked it A LOT.
