I first saw this on a local Craigslist ad (for a ridiculously high price) and just thought it was the cutest thing. Then I saw this vintage ad, and apparently it’s a little bigger than the mini-bike size I’d thought:
A little of the Googlin’ led me to this page: Electric Minibike, with these photos and some specs (that look like they came from EV Album):
|Base Vehicle:||1973 Auranthetic Charger|
|Motor:||24 Volt Permanent Magnet 1 hp|
|Curtis 24-36V 275A|
|Batteries:||2- 12 volt deep cycle|
|System Voltage:||24 Volts|
|Charger:||110 Volt, output 24 Volt 5 Amp|
|24 Volt -12 Volt, 10 Amp max|
|Instramentation:||Volt/amp combo meter|
|Top Speed:||30 mph|
|Range:||probably 20-30 miles|
|Curb Weight:||about 200 pounds|
…and then, I found this. Oh my. Someone has some time on their hands, along with a good sense of humor.
