The Electrified Bicycles of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Bike Path

Friday, January 9th, 2009

Well, it was bound to happen. The Panhandle Bike Path in the more urban part of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park has become a veritable freeway for motorized vehicles. Of course the term “Pandlehandle Freeway” was the proposed name for a big one for cars and with multiple lanes back in the day. It was planned to be an extension of Interstate 80 but the whole shebang got cancelled, leaving us with the Fell and Oak one-way streets instead.

This e-Go Cycle2 Classic electric motorcycle looks right at home on the bike path, zipping along. Buy one yourself for just $1550. Or make your own! You’ll have to start with a couple of 12-volt lead-acid car batteries… You’ll probably end up being a hero at Burning Man.

What’s next? Kawasaki Ninja and Honda CBR sport motorcycles on the bike path?  

Pictures forthcoming.

Stay safe.
