1922 Douglas Pidcock Electric Motorcycle

Up for sale Douglas Pidcock 1922 Electric Motorcycle 18v

The first British Electric Motorcycle (possibly),

Originally built from a Douglas 2 3/4 frame then modified with Mr Pidcocks own frame.

Speed is selected by a lever 3 positions 6v, 12v and 18v and the clutch lever operating a Lucas solenoid switch to bring in the motor. The motor is a Morris lorry starter motor. I've had a new industrial charger made and the bike is fitted with 3 x 6v heavy duty rubber batteries.Batteries are currently showing 8-9v.

Getting from A to B on this machine is fun if a little slow, max. of 18mph approx. In the few miles I have done the range is about 5 miles or so.

I'm Asking $7900
