Are Electric Bikes Too Expensive? Why not start making “homemade” bicycles in wood! This is a great job done by an expert in carpentry.
The Electraply is an electrically assisted bicycle (eBike) that has a simulated motorcycle feel, unlike any other. And for good reason: Its frame is made of wood! This is the stunning creation of Avi B, a British expert in carpentry who knew how to combine the best of his favorite materials and pedelec.
up to 45 km/h
To create his bike, Evie Bee was inspired by a Yamaha SR 250 Scrambler, one of the most popular motorcycles in the world of custom two-wheelers. The Electraply chassis is made of plywood, and was designed on the Rhino 3D.
The structure is mainly made up of layers of poplar and birch. Stainless steel was used to hold the bike’s frame firmly in place, and of course for the suspension and wheels as well. The 26-inch Smart Pie allows the motor vehicle to go up to 45 km/h.
The 35V and 12.5A Yose batteries give the VAE a range of 35km. The weight of the two wheeler is 30 kg including battery and motor. AV Bee is planning to launch a crowdfunding campaign for those who want to buy the vehicle, but most do-it-yourselfers can start building the Electrally themselves by following the instructions given by the designer.
