Johammer J1 Electric Motorcycle

Johammer J1 Electric Motorcycle 00

By far one of the strangest looking electric motorcycles I’ve seen, the Johammer J1 looks like it belongs in a sci fi movie. Built by Johann Hammerschmid and a small team of engineers, the J1 does away with traditional motorcycle design. The electric motor is integrated into the rear wheel, while the front wheel utilizes hub-center steering coupled to a double wishbone suspension. The mirrors include a hi-res display that shows speed and various other info. The bike will set you back $31k or $34,500 depending on the size of the battery pack you choose.

Proud Indian Motorcycle Owner-Circa 1918

Ind

I love old Indian motorcycles. This picture here comes from the University of North Texas’s archives. The picture was taken circa 1918 by Winkelmann’s Studio. This particular Indian V-Twin is outfitted with a few optional extras: acetylene headlamp, Klaxon horn, air pump, toolbox, and a rack. The owner looks pretty proud of his machine!
