Why choose a retro electric bike over regular e bikes on the market today?
The style of a retro e bike is unique and nostalgic. The e bike itself is meant to harken back to the early motorcycles from the past (Indian/ Harley, Excelsior etc). Vintage! complete with a comfortable seat and an upright riding position. This style of e bike is perfect for anyone who wants to make a statement on their daily commute or weekend joy rides.
In addition to style, retro electric bikes are also known for their quality. These bikes are built to last a lifetime, and they offer comfort, power and durability that other bikes simply can’t match. If you’re looking for an electric bicycle that will give you years of trouble-free operation, a retro electric bike is the way to go.
Fat tires, comfy saddle, springer suspension = added comfort
Another benefit of choosing a retro electric bike is the extreme comfort during operation that it provides. Thanks to the upright riding position and the cushioned seat, you’ll be able to ride for hours without experiencing any discomfort. This is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy a leisurely ride or make their daily commute more comfortable.
For many people, the appeal of a retro e bike lies in its vintage appearance. These bikes have a classic look from the past that is both eye-catching and timeless. If you’re looking for a bike that will turn heads, a retro electric bike is the perfect choice.
Retro ebikes ride just like any other electric bicycle, but they offer some unique benefits that make them ideal for certain types of riding. If you’re looking for a leisurely ride, these bikes are perfect; however, if you want to get some exercise, they can be ridden in a pedal assist mode. Thanks to their quality construction and comfortable seats, retro electric bikes are perfect for anyone who loves the journey.
The Unconquered Custom
The Unconquered Custom is a retro electric bike with all the style of a beautiful old Indian or Harley, but with all of the features associated with a hi tech electric bike with an electric motor instead of a noisy engine. These retro styled electric bikes ride like a motorcycles, feels like motorcycles, and draw the eyes of the crowd as any retro styled ebike should.
At Unconquered Customs we know that electric bikes are not new anymore, and you can no longer wow people just by being electric—you need to do better than that. So we have provided our customers the means to create custom retro electric bikes at their own price via our online design tool and we then set to work putting these unique designs into production and onto the road!
We believe our unique combination of client driven customization and new school tech has resulted in a line of custom electric bikes that look as good as any gas-powered bike out there we even kept the gas tank (swapping out the gas for a 52V battery)but with a silent motor, and a more refined design.
Old school looks and quality meet awesome new school tech with extras - pedal assist and hydraulic disc brakes to name a few!
Before we began to develop our product, we knew our custom retro ebikes had to tick several critical performance boxes: Top speed had to be fully programmable, a minimum range of 60 + km per charge. Each Unconquered Custom sports a host of impressive technical specs. The components within our builds are of the utmost quality from the motor (with power for 390 + RPM delivery) and chassis each machine is built to last a lifetime. Our vintage electric bikes incorporate geared hub motor drives. Each motor is hand laced into the spokes, dished then trued into the rear wheel of the bike. The motor can either be programmed to kick in responding to your natural cadence via pedal-based sensor providing you with 5 x levels of pedal assist. Or the bike can be programmed to accelerate your ride in pure twist throttle mode. If you live in an area that's wet or hilly, you’ll be interested to know that we provide a powerful 1 hp motor along with many extras like hydraulic disc brakes, and extra wide tires to help prevent you and your cargo from skidding into traffic. If yours is a longer commute, leave your range anxiety at the door!
Incorporating retro looks into an ebike
The overall aesthetic is not as easy to create as it looks—in fact, customizing these bikes can be incredibly difficult. Making a complex product look simple is one of the hardest things to do, and that’s especially true with Unconquered retro styled ebikes. The ‘tank’ on these vintage style electric bikes always seems to get a lot of comments. Putting a faux gasoline tank on the bike may sound unnecessary. But at the same time, and particularly with this retro style of ebike, some sort of heritage and natural evolution in the overall look of the machine from early American motorcycles was required.
Most retro ebikes have a drop in/perimeter style frame, where the battery box fits in the middle and the controller sits on top under a ‘tank.’ But each Unconquered Custom sits on an 82-inch-long tube framed chassis. ‘The chassis is super strong and adds a retro/soulful element that most retro ebikes just don’t have.’ With clever use of lines, bends, radiuses, and angles, it all works
Our wheels are 26-inch aluminum, front and back, dressed with 3 inch fat tires and customizable performance front ends. And the detail we try and make as good as the engineering on not only obvious items like the leather seats but also things like the CNC’d foot pegs, mounts and brackets.
Each Unconquered Custom retro e bike comes equipped with a digital display, 5 x pedal assist modes, twist throttle control, and a battery level indicator plus all the other gadgets that you would expect from a high-end electric motorcycle.
Our battery lithium ion polymer cells are Panasonic built for extended battery life, and the lcd and controller options are Bafang (two of the best companies in the world for this type of tech).
How to customize a retro e bike to fit your specific needs and preferences?
It's simple! Use our Design a bike tool to create a classic aethestic that is unique to your style adding or subtracting components to fit your price and performance preferences. And we'll take your design and selection results and put them into production and onto the road!

Choose how fast you want to go, how much pedal assistance you need, or operate with twist throttle only if you prefer along with 30 other programmable options!
Over 30 different programmable settings!

- Create a unique PIN for bike ignition
- Program power delivery and top speed
