Vintage a step above

Exceptional customer service right from the start . Every company should take lessons from A-Z from Vintage Electric . Absolutely Amazing . My wife loves her Vintage Tracker she has owned several electric bikes over the years which in there own right were made very well made, with that said The Vintage Bike company is what all other should strive to become . #1

Lots of room!

It took a while to figure out the hooking system for the bags but once figured it's ok. I love the fact that it's 100% waterproof. Secondly, there is a LOT OF ROOM inside these bags! And the outside pouch is a nice dividend. All in all, 4 out of 5 stars. Would be five but I would prefer a zipper closure over folding and clipping-but that's due in large part to never having had a bag that closes like this before.

Great company!!

Hello everyone, I have owned my 72v scrambler for over 8 months, so far I have had a great experience! When I first got my bike the race mode pin did not work, it was a solid month of in and out of the shop. Eventually I contacted vintage electric, the emailed me back with in the day saying they would send a van to my house to come pick up the bike and take it to there main office in LA, within 3 days the bike was back at my house in perfect condition. Their customer service is perfect and I have no complaints, since then I have had to replace the brakes 1 time and had to get 1 new tire. Everything on this bike is perfect and made to last, I highly recommend you pick one up if you can.

Great service. Fast and accurate. Product works perfectly. Can't go wrong with Vintage.

Outstanding Bike

I purchased a 72 volt roadster about a month ago. This is my first electric bike purchase. I have never been more pleased with a bike in my life! I never expected how comfortable and powerful this bike was going to be. I have always messed with Whizzers and other gas powered bicycles, but this bike is incredible! The quality of the bike is amazing. The staff at vintage is amazing. I plan on purchasing another one for my wife, she absolutely loves mine. If you plan on purchasing a e- bike , look at vintage bikes and compare, and remember you get what you pay for. Mr. Davidge , my friend, you got this one RIGHT!

Does a great job!

This post really smooths out the ride! I will say that it can feel a little sticky but only because the post angle is pretty laid back. I've taken through some pretty rough terrain and was super impressed. After trying a thudbuster-style post this is so much better. Highly recommend and the fact that the light stays intact makes it a winner. Easy to install as well.

"Never be afraid to own the best...

...because you will always be happy with it." (to finish the quote) I was born in the early 60's and have been a sports nut my whole life. BMX racing was my favorite. I still ride but aches and pains have started to put a damper on my fun-factor. I have been considering electic (bikes) for about a year now. Saw an older gentleman zipping by on a Vintage with the biggest smile. The bike just looked gorgeous even though I only got a glimpse. After searching tons of thumbnail immages on the web, I finally found they have a website. Saw the price and hesitated. As it turned out, they were local to me too. I went to the shop and met Cameron, then Andrew. It was a great experience talking about our love of bikes. After taking a test ride, I was hooked. I bought a Scrambler and couldn't be happier. Hang on tight, this thing really moves! This is the most fun I've had in years. Now I'm the guy zipping by with the big smile. As for the price... my buddy said after he road it... "worth every penny". I agree.

This machine is brilliant!

I've got to hand it to the folks at Vintage Electric Bikes. I just received a limited edition Green Scrambler and have been on a few rides. This machine is a brilliant blend of classic retro styling and high tech performance. I have been riding e bikes for 11 years and this bike is truly a monster. All the power you could ever want (and more) makes this a truly unique bike. The motor is virtually silent, all you can hear is the sound of the tires on the road. The power delivery from the motor to the rear wheel is smooth and seamless. Also, the support from Cam and Eddie at the shop was great and they are always ready to help you solve any issue. I was hesitant to purchase this bike (or any bike) without a test ride, but it met the criteria for the bike I wanted and I am so glad I went with a Vintage. Will take it off road soon. Happy riding.

The Wait is Killing Me!

When first looking for my first eBike I ran across an ad for Vintage and I couldn't look away and as hard as I tried to find a bike I liked better for less money, I am so glad I went with this model. Eddie and Cameron were both great and helpful. The bike shop they sent my bike to was so happy to work with a bike of such high quality and even though they don't handle Vintage, yet, they said it was the nicest and fastest bike in their shop and proceeded to point out all of the quality items on the bike they really liked. The owner can't wait to get his own now. My title says I can't wait, true, I picked this up 6 hours ago, but my helmet won't be delivered until tomorrow sometime, then is game on. Thanks Vintage Bikes.

It's a great bike. Lov it.

I ride it in the neighborhood all the time on pavement, but finally got it out on some good gravel last weekend. Didn't feel the need to engage power that much, probably used it for 5 or 6 miles out of 28 and never saw a visible decline in the battery life. LOL, I don't believe there will ever be a reason to ever ride this in gravel over setting 3, (Its scary).
It's a great bike. Lov it.

The anticipation was met with exceeded expectations of the bike

I recently took delivery of my Vintage Electric Roadster. The anticipation was met with exceeded expectations of the bike. The workmanship and pride that went into the design and assembly of the bike was evident from tip to tail. Every component appears to be of.premium quality. The first ride went as they say “ just like riding a bike” except faster, easier and much much cooler. The bike turns heads and not just because I was bundled up riding it in 40° weather. The ride itself is truly a stunner. You definitely get what you pay for. Eddie and the TEAM @ Vintage earned my trust and answered and continue to answer all my questions and concerns. These are bike guys with class, style and performance in their DNA. Vintage is clearly the leader in the US high-end e-bike game.

"What else is there"?...

Received my Shelby bike in July...
Incredibly amazing, from riding comfort to managing speed selections...
I do own another e bike...not even close!...
Rarely do I ride more than 20mph, but I did do the 40mph they claim!..
If you only need the power for headwinds and inclines, you will get over 120 miles with 2 bars remaining!...
The owner and other personnel are always there for you too!...
Exceptional business and product...
What else is there?...

The bike handles perfectly, stops on a dime and everything is as advertised

I bought my Rally a couple of weeks ago from Eddie at Vintage and it was incredibly pleasant and seamless dealing with him. I was a bit hesitant to buy a bike without benefit of a test ride, but after watching video reviews, reading everything I could find online about the Rally and talking with Eddie I felt good about ordering the bike. They shipped out the bike the same day to a local bike shop who assembled the bike at Vintage’s expense. That’s class!

The mechanics at the shop were marveling over the build quality of the Rally and I was absolutely blown away. This thing is literally a work of art!

Now the fun part. I got on the assembled bike to ride home, set it to pedal assist level 1 and took off. This thing has absolutely silent gorilla power that feels like a natural extension yourself. The perfect melding of man and machine, I felt like Tony Stark in his Iron Man exoskeleton. And that’s at level 1 assist.

I came to a hill, thumbed the assist up to level 2 and actually started accelerating up the incline with very little effort on my part. Just for fun, I increased to level 5 and the way the bike took off reminded me of hitting the power band on my old 2-cycle Yamaha RD250. I’m sure that level’s 1 & 2 will account for 90% of my riding. The bike handles perfectly, stops on a dime and everything is as advertised.

Anyway, after test riding a lot of different e-bikes over the summer that seemed both underpowered and cheaply made I am overjoyed that I found the Rally.

Great bike!

Having a blast with this bike! Solid, fast, intuitive, and looks great as well. Super easy to ride around town, makes the work commute much more enjoyable. Happy with the purchase, looking forward to getting a lot of use out of this for many years!

Sleek design

Loving the Cafe- took a leap of faith since I couldn’t test ride and couldn’t be happier. It’s every bit as beautiful in person as in the pictures and an absolute joy to ride for my bike commute. Seeing as how I’m nowhere near a dealership, the team in CA was able to help me with sizing and accessories over the phone and responded quickly when I had a minor issue with the charger, overnighting me a replacement. The bike was delivered to my doorstep in perfect condition thanks to the good folks at Kitzuma. Great experience all around.

Although this was an expensive purchase, I found it to be one of the best purchase experiences of...

Eddie, I just want to give a shout out to you and your team at Vintage Electric. From my first conversation with you, to the delivery yesterday afternoon, everyone kept me updated on the progress of the build, right through to the time of delivery at my home. Jeff from Kitzuma was the delivery person and he took expert care in making sure that the bike was perfect before he left my home. It wasn’t even 5 minutes of him taking the bike off of the truck in my driveway when a gentleman driving his electric bike stopped and said “Wow, what the heck is that thing? That looks awesome?” Right after Jeff left, I was on the bike taking my first ride and I was beyond impressed. It had very quick response and was extremely maneuverability while operating it. I personally want to thank you for the guidance and consideration that you gave me when we spoke, and you were very generous with your time. I did not feel rushed by a salesperson pushing a product. You made sure that every question was answered and it was clear at first glance that you perserver on quality control and customer satisfaction. Again, thank you for everything. Although this was an expensive purchase, I found it to be one of the best purchase experiences of all time. It is great to be part of the Vintage Electric family now! I wish you, Andrew, and your whole team at Vintage Electric the very best of success.

I am obsessed with it

I purchased a Vintage Electric Shelby bike a few months ago and I am obsessed with it . It is such a thrill to ride! Did a lot of research prior to buying it and I must say , it’s in a class of its own. It’s a work of art that rides like a dream! The support from Eddie and Cameron has been fantastic. Highly recommend Vintage Electric Bikes, great company with an amazing product!

The gas in my Harley is going bad!

Hello Gentlemen.

I'm enjoying my new bike where there are miles upon miles of nature trails all along the shoreline and inland where I live, and while exercising (pedal assist) too. The area's steep hills are no challenge for this bike! The gas in my Harley is going bad!

Thank you both, for all your assistance, advice, instruction, and patiently answering all of my questions.

Cameron; Thank you again for the very nice t-shirt, it's a perfect fit. Funny thing, I always loved t-shirts with print, front and back, and this one does! I'm wearing it again today!

I know there's an online fan base, with all good things said there, and rightfully so. I'll soon share praise there too. Being in the technology field, as often as I can, I prefer to shut everything "work" off, and retreat to simple pleasures, like family, and nature. The latter, includes this bike.

This is the bike I always knew I wanted, hoped would one day exist, and thanks to the vision, commitment, smart, talented, and dedicated group that all of you at Vintage are, now it does!

Kudos to all of you, and I wish you all continued success.

You actually get more than you pay for!

Unbelievably Fantastic Bike both in looks and performance ! I purchased two Vintage Roadster Bikes for my son and myself and could not be happier. Eddie the Head of Sales was Friendly, Professional, Responsive and answered all of my questions. These are not only the Best looking Electric Bikes I have ever seen but the Build Quality is Amazing! I’m a Classic Car collector and very particular in what I purchase especially if I’m buying a “Retro Mod”. Like the Cars I wanted something that looked Retro but had up to date modern technical features.This Vintage Retro bike definitely exceeded my expectations. As I mentioned the quality of the build impressed me immediately as I purchased the bikes sight unseen. After riding the bike I noticed how smooth and comfortable the ride was. However, If you purchase the race mode (like I did) hang on as it is a performance bike if you want it to be. I could not be more satisfied with the purchase. All my friends that see it want one. Additionally when I park it anywhere, it always draws a crowd. The old adage “ you get what you pay for” is true here with one exception. You actually get more than you pay for!

I have already run into some issues (Kinda lol)

I have ridden my Shelby about 20 miles and I have already run into some issues.

1) Facial Paralysis I have a stupid giddy Christmas-Morning-Grin on my face pretty much the entire time I ride.
2) Self Consciousness - due to the above mentioned facial paralysis. This wouldn’t be too big of a problem, but people stare. They stare from their car as they slowly pass me while they’re driving 45…they stare from the sidewalks and gas stations as I zoom by.
3) PTSD - Memories of Post Totally Speedy Drives (PTSD) on my Yamaha R1 (I’ve literally reached for the turn signals a couple of times 🤣

I’m no medical professional but I think that the fix will be to put more miles on my Shelby.

Gentlemen, I am incredibly happy with the entire Vintage Electric experience so far. I look forward to having this bike be my daily driver for years to come. Yeah, I’m definitely hooked.

Eddie, thanks for your timely responses and for taking the time to speak with me over the phone.

Cameron, thanks for making the drive and taking the time to explain the details on my Shelby. You are officially my second favorite Cameron!

I will definitely do business with them again!
