The Faraday Porteur Electric Bike ($3500) doesn't even look like it has a battery. Unlike most electric bikes that look like skinny electric scooters this guy looks like your standard everyday bike. But it has a couple little secrets, a 350 watt motor paired with a 195Wh battery which provide pedal assistance for up to 15-20 miles. With a flip of a switch you can turn the assist off to use as a standard bike. The Porteur also features a US-made steel frame, standard 26 inch, 35mm tires, and weighs 39 pounds. They're taking orders now with delivery expected late summer.
The Moto Guzzi V50 By Revival Cycles ($TBA) is another hit by the guys from Austin, Texas. This commissioned project started off with a bike that had been ridden cross-country a couple of times and served its owner well. Some of the many customizations they made was to completely detab the frame, swapped out the tank for one from a Yamaha RD400, custom built a new CNC for brace, rebuilt the electrical and many more improvements. The result is an absolutely stunning piece of work.
