Update: 4-13-2017, we have completed our first two Custom Electric Flyers. The first iteration went to Becky, whose friendly persuasion helped this project along. The electric bike frame you see below is a replica of the original Indian motorcycle, and the front fork is a Harley touch, which adds some elegance to the bike. The Electric Flyer you see on the rack is capable of speeds up to 50mph. However............
the more robust electric version will be far more elegant and functional, with the addition of:
The Electra Flyer can be customized to look exactly like any of Indian motorcycle. This is our next build with the addition of dual disk brakes, a Harley front fork and of course the leather saddle, as comfortable as a lounge chair.
BETTER YET, WE NOW HAVE DESIGNED AN ONBOARD CHARGER, REALLY!
GENTLEMEN START YOUR ENGINES!
This custom electric bike sports pedals to qualify as a Class I, Class II, or a Class III electric bicycle. In reality it's a motorcycle posing as an electric bike, because it is capable of going 50 mph and over 60 miles on a charge!
The faux cylinders can each hold up to 10ah at 52v, and the newly widened tank will hold another 30ah. The fins of the cylinder heads will be anodized black, like the original Indian two stroke engine.
Note: This is not the final placement of the exhaust pipes, but a mock up. Ultimately they will be polished or blued. The spark plugs are actually battery leads that will go to the controller hidden in the tool box behind the seat post.
The aluminum motor casing will be polished as well as sport an embossed cowling that will cover the chain going to the reduction gear. The Astro motor is capable of putting out 3,500 watts of continuous power, and nearly 9,000 watts of peak power; making this a truly awesome machine!
This is actually a motorcycle frame around which Pat has beautifully designed a housing for the DC motor, cylinders to house additional batteries, and a reduction gear going back to motorcycle rims and tires. The bike pictured here is a light weight version that will be modified to be more robust.
These bikes will offer customization at all levels of power, which will also include headlights, fenders, racks, pegs, kickstands, saddlebags, and saddles. Take a closer look at some of these classic bikes and imagine your own custom Electric Indian Chief.
The following images of Indian Motorcycles are included here to spark you imagination of how you might customize your own Indian Canyon Flyer
