Shanghai Customs Honda eCub Scooter
Thanks to regulations that have made motorcycle plates prohibitively expensive and scooter licenses affordable for everyone, the custom scene in China has shifted from the former to the latter. The Shanghai Customs Honda eCub Scooter is a perfect example. Using the venerable Cub as a base, this electric vehicle has all its wiring hidden, including the battery packs and controller, which sit in a custom box where the engine used to be. It's controlled via a motorcycle-style throttle and is also equipped with a front headlight, LED brake lights and blinkers, and chunky tires on 18-inch aluminum rims. It can carry an average-sized adult up over 30 miles at speeds up to 30 mph, and since it retains the holders for the rear foot pegs, it's easy to add a second seat for passengers.
