Pedelecs Built with Actual Retro Parts by Agnelli Milano Bici

Luca Agnelli is a craftsman schooled in antique furniture restoration, but he's now turned into a bicycle creator sensation with his Agnelli Milano Bici retro jewels. Luca's aim was to solve one of the biggest styling problems of modern days - pedelecs packing the latest technology and looking like old-school two-wheelers.

His creations employ actual vintage parts, such as fuel tanks of old bikes and mopeds. Then comes a most interesting work whose result is to modify a bicycle to style it accordingly, obtaining an image that is coherent with the design language of yore.

This makes sure that no two other bikes are identical, and Luca takes a great pride in this, too. With many of the components modified in so many ways, the diversity of models is ensured. In fact, it would probably be harder to find two bikes that are identical.

From springer to girder forks, whitewall or two-tone tires, a variety of sprung seats to custom leather grips, handmade accessories and parts with varying types of finishes, Agnelli Milano Bici has them all, mixed in ways that yield sensational pedelecs.

The tanks are obviously not housing petrol, and are used to conceal the battery packs. Not always available in the friendliest of shapes, these tanks are elements that make a crucial difference in the big picture. Also, cue suicide shifters that regulate the pedal assist and flowing fenders making these bikes even sweeter.

There's not too much energy stored in the rather small tanks, with the cells being 36V 10 Ah supplied by Panasonic and feeding Chinese Bafang 36V 250-Watt rear hub motors. Still, these bikes appear also to be significantly lighter than most of the pedelecs available, and this makes pedaling when the batteries run dry a much smaller effort.

For availability, pricing and special customization, you should contact Agnelli Milano Bici. Enjoy these sizzling hot photos and make sure you feast your eyes on the multitude of bikes on their website.
