Vintage E-Tracker: Retro Style with Today’s Tech [VIDEO & PICS]
Dec 01, 2014
The Vintage E-Tracker may look retro but it has today’s technology to create a fashionable e-bike for fun and practical transportation.
The folks at Vintage have based the E-Tracker styling on the early 1900’s board track racing bikes.
To follow with that style they have incorporated the battery into a case that is reminiscent of a gas engine in the main triangle of the frame. With today’s technology they claim that the large 52V 12.5ah lithium battery can be charged in 2 hours; that’s quick!
E-Trackers are available with a variety of customization options like color, assist (throttle or pedal assist), power, and accessories. Some of the options add cost to the baseline price tag of $4,995.
There are 2 power options available for the E-Tracker. The street legal option that limits the power to 750 watts with a max speed of 20 mph. Vintage also offers the Race mode that ups the power to 3,000 watts and speed up to 36 mph. The Race mode is for off-road use only and it adds $99 to the base price.
Vintage states that they are focused on quality and that “the E-Tracker is built to stand the test of time”. An example of that is their use of Brooks leather grips and saddle. Those Brooks components add to the E-Tracker style and they are also know to stand the test of time; in fact they usually get better with age!
