I live in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, and build electric motorcycles in my spare time, usually after my kids go to bed. I cover my latest builds and share what I know about other motonerds on instagram at @nightshiftbikes. You can read about my backyard studio and earlier builds at nightshiftbikes.com.
I do this mostly because I want to make unique bikes that are fun to ride. But we need to talk about getting off of oil sooner rather than later, and I think kick-ass, custom electric bikes can move the conversation forward. Electric drivetrains are way more efficient than gas, and battery tech can now give you all the range and power you want. What's missing is the design/art part to go with the tech.
If you know about a cool custom electric, let's hear about it. Thanks for coming by!
