Harley-Davidson Schwinn Sting-Ray-Like eBike Sells For 14,200
To help launch Harley-Davidson’s new Series 1 eBikes is commissioned a custom one-off that is inspired by the Schwinn Sting-Ray bicycles from the 1960s.
Harley-Davidson just launched their new Serial 1 line of eBikes. To help give it a little boost it plans on featuring custom one-off bikes. It helps spotlight the line and also gives direction for buyers wanting to customize their eBike. And customization has been critical over the decades to the success of its Harley-Davidson cruisers. It hopes this will also be the case for its Series 1 bikes.
This custom Harley eBike is inspired by Schwinn Sting-Rays bikes from the 1960s
Kicking things off is this Schwinn Sting-Ray-inspired bike based on Harley’s MOSH/CTY model. Whether you rode one as a kid or have seen them in collections, the Schwinn Sting-Ray has always been a unique and desirable bicycle. And translated onto the MOSH/CTY eBike it looks equally as cool.
In many ways, the Sting-Ray mimicked some of the features of old choppers from the 1960s. Ape-hanger handlebars, sissy bars, and even the banana seats were all taken directly from customized Harleys. So this is a Harley copy of a bicycle that was copying Harleys.
For paint the eBike got a candy blue over silver micro-flake
The paint is a candy blue over a silver micro-flake base coat. It too reminds us of the 1960s “Spectraflame” candy colors. Panels of freak dots on some panels are pinstriped in a light blue hue. Other panels get a psychedelic stripe pattern. Offsetting certain areas of the frame are white pinstripes.
In all, the paint presentation is screaming custom 1960s Harley choppers. The finishing touches include the metalflake handle grips and the iconic white leather banana seat attached to a chrome sissy bar.
Harley wants to shotgun eBike customization which is the hallmark of its cruiser bikes
“Customization is such an important part of the motorcycle ownership experience,” Serial 1 brand director Aaron Frank told Rideapart. “For decades, people have been modifying their motorcycles to reflect their unique style and taste. The 1-OFF Series applies this same spirit of individualization and personalization to eBikes, showing people just how much fun it is to create an eBike that suits their own unique personality.”
The MOSH/CTY is a one-speed battery-powered bike capable of up to 20 mph. A 250W motor gets its power from a 529Wh li-ion battery. The range is a hair over 100 miles, and it can be fully charged in five hours.
You could do this yourself for well under its auction price of 14,200
This first custom Series 1 eBike was recently auctioned off for 14,250. That is way more than the price of a stock MOSH/CTY at 3,799. It’s also way more than it would cost you to do a conversion like this yourself. And that’s the point.
You can go out and do your own version just like the hundreds-maybe thousands of Harley owners inspired by choppers like the Captain America bike from Easy Rider.

Talaria Sting vs Sur Ron: Key differences
- Weighs more, 138 lbs vs 110 lbs
- It’s bigger… wider and taller
- ground clearance
- Longer seat
- Wider rear swing arm which fits a wider rear tire
- Bigger battery 38 Ah vs 32 Ah
- One battery connector instead of two
- New Throttle
- New display with more control
- Better regenerative breaking that is now more easily adjustable
- New Start button: because it’s easy to forget the bike is on, the start button helps to prevent accidental wheelies
- New Gearbox which replaces the problematic Sur Ron belt
- Gearbox requires an oil change every 1000 km
- Less noisy
- powerful initial acceleration
- Decreased turning radius
Why choose the Talaria Sting over the Sur Ron?
Stock and out of the box, both bikes are very good for riding streets and light trails.
The Sur Ron would be better for shorter riders and street riders since it is smaller and more lightweight.
The larger, more powerful Talaria seems to be more suited for heavier and taller riders who do more trail riding but the initially jumpy acceleration will take some getting use to.
A big consideration that many neglect in the decision making is maintenance and the Surron jackshaft and belt drive are notorious for needing repairs and replacing.
The Talaria eliminates that issue by using a sealed gearbox. Yes, the oil will need to be regularly changed from the gearbox, but that’s pretty simple compared to replacing bad bearings or a busted belt.
The heavier and bigger Talaria feels more like a motorcycle and it’s definitely more punchy off the line.
In conclusion, the Talaria is a bigger, heavier version of the Surron with some nice upgrades that should require less maintenance while the Surron is the time tested classic electric dirt bike with plenty of 3rd party accessories, parts and support.
