Super 73 Story: a modern take on the 70s minibike
Posted by : Lithium Cycles /
The Super 73 is created from pure nostalgia and 100% American made steel. With a design that harkens back to muscle driven days of American manufacturing and a silent motor that rivals any modern electric bike, the Super 73 is something straight out of a 1970’s sci-fi writer’s dream.
We are native Californians, from the North and the South, we grew up surrounded by motorcycles, skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding. With summers spent camping along the coast and weekends dedicated to resurrecting old muscle cars, we love life in the golden state. Racing and modding minibikes was the kind of thing that was happening right in our own neighborhoods and we have the scars to prove it. Anyone with a minibike was the envy of all thrill seeking suburban towns.
As fond as we are of old-school minibikes, we were inspired to make our own version, the Super 73. A simple but elegant frame design, the Super 73 is fitted with a powerful electric mid-drive motor that hits like a punch in the face, 20" fat tires for all terrain riding, and a top-of-the-line battery to drive you the distance. This modern take on the 70s minibike appeals to not only those who remember that time, but to their children, raised in a culture of retro.
