How To Build An Electric Cafe Racer For A Small Budget

South Carolina husband and wife Ed and Tammy build for fun their own electric motorcycles for a very modest budget. They decided to build an electric Cafe Racer in the style of the Triumphs of the 70’s and starting from a 1978 Honda CB750 costing them only $250 they arrived to finish EV motorcycle featured here. And this very nice couple are nice enough, although in a very amateurish website, to explain to you how they did it and how you could also build yours. So, I will not repeat. Before you bug Ed and Tammy for more advice, just a warning before you are getting started. There is a lot of voltage on an electric bike. Wired incorrectly, these batteries can seriously injure or kill you. Summary explanation at: Juiced Drag Racing

    Go for it! The more people on two-wheels, the bigger our clout. And clout’s what it’s all about….if ya wanna change conditions for the better. Say something!

    Put it right in “their” face 24/7 until they bend to reason. 🙂

    Nice and clean looking, I like it. Most electric bikes look like toys, the lower fairing on this bike is well done.

    As the owner of a CB750 I have to say I actually like this. Most of the electric bikes out there are way too angular and futuristic looking. This has the classic Cafe Racer look to it. It actually looks like a motorcycle. I would like to see it without the Comstar rims and use spoked ones instead.
