This is basically a sub-genre of E-bikes focused on overtly emulating vintage 1920-50’s lightweight motorcycle styling, yet applies it to – Electric Bicycles. As you can imagine I was thrilled at this discovery, but had no idea where to showcase this information, Some friends recommended I start a website but thought this would be expensive? plus I’d be getting ahead of myself, first you need to build your audience… So instead I opted for a more cost effective approach – a Facebook page!
Wherein I would create individual photo albums dedicated to one-off Custom builds, including the companies currently producing ‘electric cruiser bicycles’ alongside correct links to webpages and social media outlets. Needless to say, it gained some notice; a few companies actually started branding their electric bicycles E-cruizers’ which although wasn’t my decision still made me smile –a lot!
Then in December of 2015 I approached a custom bicycle builder E-Zine (digital magazine) about publishing an article on this emerging custom culture, to which they replied ‘only if you write it, and also get the appropriate photo permission’ (Which I successfully did)
Recently however, this Facebook page finally reached a landmark of 1100 ‘organic’ page likes (Basically Not-paid-for) and in the future I hope to publish two books on this custom E-bike culture, one being the first ever A-Z guide to electric cruiser bicycle companies, the other being an in-depth one focused on Custom one-off builds and the individual creators of them.
Also, I wouldn’t mind being a writer for the E-bike industry, But would need to prove my writing credentials first with qualifications, experience and published material. So any advice on article writing (for motor-vehicles) would be very much appreciated, the how-to’s, and techniques.
