Hey everyone! Check out my new ride I recently got ! She’s a beautiful Electra electric bike, however I can’t find her anywhere on the the web. I understand that possibly she was a regular bike then converted into an electric, but I still can’t find just the frame anywhere ! Can someone help me identify her !? Thank you all in advance !

Hi Angiecita,
Welcome! I have seen a non-motorized version before (same paintwork); but nothing with that battery "tank" and motor. Due to the matching color scheme I would think that it was a stock build, but it may be a very nicely done custom job. What is the word on the seat stay tube above the chain guard? I would think that it would be the model name unless also custom added. They are supposed to be quality bikes, but that was when the company was small and independent; I don't know who makes/distributes them now. I can talk to some bike shop friends and see if they have a clue since it should be a fairly new model. I assume it was used when you bought it (?). Did you get it from a shop or personal owner? I would ask the seller if they know any history of it, or you could contact Electra directly (best bet); providing that photo and the serial number. I would think that they could give you the model and year, and inform you of any modifications made at the factory (possibly a special order), or if it was modified by an owner or retailer. Also, try a post on "RatRodbikes"; Electra made some "chopper" style bikes back in the day (maybe still do) which that community may be well acquainted with.
Take care,
Jesper
