Electric Honda Cub C90

This is my restoration and electric conversion of a 1980 Honda Cub C90.

The bike was finished in early 2017 and has since been registered as an electric motorcycle in Sydney, Australia. I originally built it to be my home to studio (3.4km) short commute bike and has now clicked up approximately 800km in its first year of use.

It’s top speed is 70 km p/hr and cruises nicely around the inner city streets at 50km p/hr. A perfect little double seat commuter which is easy to park in a busy city.

The bike is fitted with a 48v 3000w QS motor, 52v 20ah custom shaped battery. I have completely rewired the bike with my own custom wiring harness allowing for the head/tail lights, indicators and iPhone charging.

The original engine on the bike was not running which made it an easy decision to covert to electric. In fact, the bike was rescued from junking and upcycled to fit with the modern world.  I’m currently building more of these electric cubs in boutique numbers when time allows. It’s been a very fun ride.
