Barcelona, Spain-based artisanal bike studio OTO Cycles have created a fascinating series of aluminum electric bikes whose design is inspired by mid-century craft bicycles. These retro bicycles are detailed with special custom components such as leather saddles and grips, a side tank housing the 250-watt electric motor and an LCD display with built-in computer. The LCD screen displays information such as speed, distance and battery life.

Despite weighing 23 kg, these OTO Cycles creations are capable of hitting speeds of up to 65 km/h and boast a start-stop system that goes from zero to 6 km/h without the need for any pedaling.

This particular OTO cycles line of offerings is available in a wide variety of colors including red, olive green and orange.Photo Credits: designboom, otocycles
