Blindspot Custom Electric Motorcycles

What happens when you tear the internal combustion heartbeat out of a vintage bike and replace it with an electric motor?  The people at Blindspot Custom Electric Motorcycles know the answer to that question all too well.  Their gorgeous vintage rebuilds take the gas-powered drivetrain out of classic bikes and rebuild them with electric motors and a series of batteries.  They’re built to resemble the originals, but drive with a green sensibility without a single sip of gasoline.  The Red Racer and Drag N’ Bag shown here (the latter in white) can speed up to 35 mph for 20 miles and 70 mph for 50 miles, respectively.  [blindspot via inhabitat]
