Big Boy Bobber

Hidden away on EV Album I found this beefy electric bike from Hungary – an “electric bobber for rare peoples(sic).” What a wonderful, interesting design.

Made out of water-cut Al 6082 aircraft aluminum alloy, the Big+Boy uses a Crystalyte Crown TC-80 Brushless DC hub motor and a custom-made prismatic cell battery.

I love the Hungamerican description of top speed:

“70 MPH (112 KPH)
easy ride to 35mph (56km/h)
littlebit havier to 60mph (98km/h)
hard ride with over 60mph (98km/h)”

I’m not sure what that means. But RANGE is more clear, and seems very promising:

“60 Miles (96 Kilometers)
60 miles with city ride 40mph in mountain town
70-80 miles with city ride 40mph in flat town
50 miles in heavy traffic with many stop and go
and high speeds
between lights (20-60mph)”

There is a sidecar version with a 300 mile (480km) range “that have 2 motor, second in sidecar wheel. maximum speed is almost 100mph (160km/h)”

SORRY. NO PICTURES OF THE SIDECAR.

The cost appears to be 2300EUR – not sure if that includes shipping – BIG BOY.

You should poke around EV Album – it’s a very ecclectic mix, including snow blowers. Here’s an example of what you’ll find (my secret EV conversion wish – Fiat X1/9):
