The 1932 classic Roadster has awakened as a 48V electric bike version! A new take on a classic build; clean, quiet, and sleek. A practical bike to carry out your daily chores and trips around town. Explore your city with faster with the Roadster Ghost City Electric Bike.

The roadster is a practical zippy revival of a bike commuting classic. It's simple and sleek. Compared to the 500 series, it is a little bit slower, with no gears or shifter. The throttle is now on the right-hand side. The bike overall has a sleek concealed look. The screen is smaller, and only has 3 pedal assist settings: Eco, Mid, and High. Not as much room for customization here.

This version comes with the rack and fenders stock but no front suspension. Also included is an integrated LED tail light as well as a headlight. The battery is to be charged on the bike only. It is removable, but not without tools. It is not a removable battery like the 500 series. The cadence sensor is a little more accurate with 24 magnets. The roadster also has a narrow allowable height range because of the flat top tube frame style.

The black is really nice.. And holy moly, this is my first ebike, so the first ride was amazing and a little shocking how fast it can go quickly! But everyone I know is jealous now, get lots of "what is that an ebike?" people stop and stare. Lol


I love how lightweight it is, love it! My only gripe is I wish they had it in more colors. But oh well, the black is cool.


Such a cool city cruiser I live in atlanta and this makes life so much easier to get around, especially on HOT days! I couldn't find a 48V bike under $1000, so this was perfect, couldn't ask for more and was super easy to put together.
