This Homemade Electric Bike Looks Armageddon-Ready

There are definitely some slick-looking electric motorcycles and bikes out there — but this ain’t one of ’em. On the other hand, it does look like something you could keep working in a Mad Max type environment. And in the end, isn’t that really what it’s all about?

This unnamed build by “Doctorbass” in Quebec uses 432 individual battery cells wired into a custom battery pack providing just over 24Ah at 100V. The top speed is around 50MPH, and it gets around 130 miles per charge. Plenty for getting around, if you ask me, and it charges in just two hours!

The best part is the DIY control cluster:

How cool is that? All those individual elements, wired together like something out of… I don’t even know. Just awesome.
