Vintage Electric produces board track bicycles with a spark
Visually inspired by the board track racers that thundered around the early-1900s ‘Murderdromes’, the handcrafted machines boast some wonderful details. These include a battery box that assumes the appearance of an engine casing, and leather saddles and grips produced by London-based specialist Brooks – the bike also sports modern technological highlights, such as regenerative braking and optional LED lighting.
Beyond the myriad customisation options – which can be specified through Vintage Electric’s online configurator – the company also offers custom paint jobs, such as the military-themed example shown in the gallery. Prices for standard versions start at a quite reasonable $4,995.
