Harley Davidson’s e-bike spin-off, Serial 1, has created a slightly psychedelic Chopper-inspired version of its Mosh e-bike. The bike is the first of a series of one-off creations from the firm and sold for $14,200 by auction.
Serial 1 unveiled its first four e-bikes in November last year. Described as, “the ultimate urban playbike,” the Mosh is the most affordable in the range with a starting price of $3,399 (around £2,550).
The Mosh/Chopper was constructed by Warren Heir Jr and Kendall Lutchman at JR’s Fabrication and Welding in Milwaukee.
While it retains all the features and functionality of the standard Mosh/Cty e-bike, including the Gates Carbon Drive belt, Brose mid-motor, it gains the classic banana seat and high-rise handlebars.
It also gets what’s described as a “Sixties-style ‘Street Freak’ paint job,” consisting of a silver micro-flake basecoat covered in House of Kolor Oriental Blue Kandy, as well as finishings like intricate panels, “freak drops,” hand pinstriping and single-stroke hand lettering.
