Krautmotors owner and former product designer, Rolf Reick, has created a customized BMW R60/6 that looks like it came right out of the '70s, but start the bike and you might think something's wrong. That's because the bike is fully electric, all the details have been maintained with a few tweaks here and there, but this special R60 has an all-electric soul complete with a contorl unit, DC converter, a wheel hub motor in the front wheel, and a battery pack inside that classic tank. It's also got a programmable controller and electric throttle and the tank has been finished in a stunning silver lacquer.
