    I take offense to the idea that an electric bike is “zero maintenance”. It’s lacking the typical maintenance of an engine. That doesn’t mean there’s no maintenance to be done. There are plenty of things I do to keep my bikes on the road that don’t necessarily involve the engine. Besides that, no electric motor is going to run forever with no attention paid to it. Finally, can we consider any time spent charging batteries beyond what it would take to fill it up with gas as maintenance? Because I can’t ride it during that time, so that seems fair.

    The Bolt Cafe just needs a less tear-droppy tank and right-side-up bar-end mirrors and it would look fine.

    It’s a dud as is.

    • Dave Day

      I certainly agree with you on the tank and mirrors. I also think the forks just look too skinny in relation to the rest of the bike.

  • Don Fraser

    Yeah, spend $10 grand for a new bike and then spend another $3 or $4K making it look cool and what do you have? Something you couldn’t sell for $5 grand.

      You left out the whole, “enjoy riding around on a bike you made cool for yourself and learned a little about how to work on motorcycles”.

      • Don Fraser

        I should clarify, been riding and wrenching for over 40 years and have never left anything alone, but I tend to keep stuff for a long time. Have seen lots of bikes modified by their owners and given away a short time later at a big loss. Better to buy something old like Greg Hageman at hagemanmc.com and make it better and worth more.

    That cafe’d Bolt is pretty sweet. Bore her out to 1200cc!

    What’s going on with that weird gap between the hump and the fender eliminator/tail light bracket?
