Rat Rod E-Bikes

Throw in some found parts, trashed e-parts, hub motors, hubless wheels, Superman handlebars, RGB LED lights, cruiser coaster brakes, make some air-suspensioned & slammed frames, spinners, smooth battery/gas tanks, RGB LED light strips, etc. Add rat rod lifestyle, skilled craftsman-level DIY fabrication and wicked cool creativity -- you get rolling art on the road!

Made by Jarrett Carter, a master technician at BMW. Each one is one-off, made in his shop, JRat Customs.

E-bikes are not nerdy, they could be wickedest cool!!

Nice.

I like the scooter style frames, and the COE truck. I know where there's a 1958 GMC COE sitting is a fence-row with a dozen other old trucks. I wish I could convince my brother to drag it down the road to his place.

In the second video at 3:34-2:53 they show one of the [two] rear wheels spinning. How does that work, I wonder...

Seeing that most of them are FWD with hub motors, the rear wheels are mostly free-wheeling or he optionally adds pedal power with coaster brakes. Looks like he had it slightly tilted on one of the back wheels and he spun the one wheel off the ground for their cool video. He also used free-wheeling spinners.

Actually, this got me excited in designing crazy-themed e-bikes! There are many more wild e-ideas around the world, but this artist used SoCal custom car vibes and custom chopper themes.
