Emory Motorsports Outlaw Bike12:15:00 PM
Emory Motorsports, famous for creating the Outlaw Porsche culture, has collaborated with Vintage Electric on a new bike. The Outlaw Tracker bike is designed by Rod Emory, a third-generation car customizer revered for tastefully chopping and channeling classic Porsche 356s. This bike is pure California, designed to appeal to tastemakers and rebels alike. Outlaw Tracker production is limited to only 50 bikes. All come in Carrera Silver, one of the most distinctive colors used on the Emory Outlaw Porsche 356s.
The Outlaw Trackers’ suspension fork has a classic moto-inspired inverted design. Road-race valving and premium components are the two-wheeled equivalents of Rod Emory-prepped vintage Porsche race cars and Emory Outlaw 356s. The Emory Outlaw inspiration also extends to the bucket headlight with Le Mans-tribute mesh grille. A bright LED headlight adds modern technology to a retro-appearing component. The Outlaw Tracker also has an integrated rear taillight; both lights are powered by the main battery, and wiring is hidden inside the frame. The 702 watt-hour lithium battery is housed in a special heat-dissipating aluminum box. This gives the Outlaw Tracker a range of up to 35 miles between charges. To maximize range, regenerative braking power recharges the battery while riding. Tapping the regenerative braking button smoothly decelerates the Outlaw Tracker, allowing the 3-phase brushless electric motor to recoup energy. A sophisticated computer located in the battery box provides smooth anti-lock braking. The Outlaw Tracker uses Shimano Alfine hydraulic disc brakes for optimal stopping power, even at 36 mph. Schwalbe Fat Frank tires provide the traction necessary to conquer most urban excursions. Their woven KevlarGuard material provides superior flat protection.
Emory Motorsports and Vintage Electric both believe that combining traditional handcrafting with modern technology creates timeless products. “The Outlaw Tracker is about disrupting the status quo,” Rod Emory says. “What Vintage Electric is doing to the bicycle reminds us of what we did to Porsche 356s a couple decades ago. We are stoked to be involved in this project.”
