Well, bitches, you read it here first. Dave at Juicer has sent me some shots of his AMAzing latest addition to the Juicer line, and, what with two bikes now, a line it is.
The 36V Stretch-Cruiser, dubbed “The Citizen”, is a heavily (and beautifully) Deco Era styled copper-and-chrome, 30mph, 20 mile range (without pedaling) dresser with all the amenities – even fenders, a headlight and horn. I’m going to shut up now and show you the photos… they pretty much speak for themselves.
Yes. Yummy gorgeousness.
Here are the specs.
This is a street-legal bike, considered a moped in California. It’s capable of 30mph and a 20 mile range without pedaling. It’s got a 2-speed transmission. Yes, you read that right. Two speeds. It’s running a 1000W Currie motor and Headway LiFe04 cells. Brakes are a coaster-brake operating on its large-patch 3” rear tire, along with a 160mm disk-brake up front. It’s running swept-back bars and a Cloud Nine saddle. It sells for $3300.
Granted, there are only two bikes offered by Juicer so far, but this really is the beginning of a true lineup of products. At 48V and $5000 for the flagship “Ranger”, you really can start to pick the bike that suits all your needs.
OK, the details: Juicer Electric Motorbicycles LLC is the work of Mr. Dave Twomey, and their site is here: Juicer Electric Motorbicycles. They also have a Facebook page that has a lot more in the way of photos and updates, so “Like” them here: Juicer Facebook Page.
How much fun is this? …complete with brown cord sport-coat:
Just in case you’re a little vague on where his inspiration comes from… here’s a shot from their Facebook album. That should clear things up.
