Velorapida | Vintage Electric Bikes

Making an electric bike not look electric is a difficult task, but Italian brand Velorapida have managed it beautifully with their collection of bicycles with a vintage flavor. The electric bikes are inspired by vintage frames and have a secret battery pack smartly hidden inside a stylish leather satchel or charming basket buckled to the handlebars. The bikes are equipped with a 5 speed 250-watt motor and can travel at a speed of 15 mph for a distance of over 35miles. via
