et loose the fire and brimstone, grab the pitchforks, and storm the castle, because Wannabe Choppers has built a—gasp!—electric chopper. We may sound melodramatic, but that’s only because when Wannabe revealed it had built an electric chopper during the “Biker Build-off” at Germany’s Custombike Show 2017, you’d have thought they’d just pulled back the sheet off Frankenstein’s monster. While Wannabe’s build-off competitor, Harley-Davidson Wurzburg, took a more traditional approach by squeezing a Milwaukee-Eight engine into a specially built Softail frame with a single-sided swingarm, Ricky de Haas opted for the road less traveled, crafting a scoot from cast aluminum pieces that at first glance looks like a chopped Ironhead. He called the bike “AlSi9Mg” after the aluminum chemical mixture used throughout the build. Needless to say, once they learned it was electric, European purists were none too happy about the result.
