The Petersen Museum is set to open the first ever all-electric bike exhibit.

Opening in late April of this year, the Petersen Automotive Museum is set to become the very first to host a display completely dedicated to electric motorcycles. This exhibit has been dubbed the “Electric Revolution” and will explore the history and future of the electric bike. In the collection will be 21 examples of builds from custom shops and manufacturers alike.

IMS Announces Minneapolis Ultimate Builder Custom Show Winners

IMS Announces Minneapolis Ultimate Builder Custom Show Winners The latest round of the UBCBS series has wrapped and the prizes awarded Another weekend, another Progressive International Motorcycle Show in the books. That also means there’s a new set of winners from the fourth round of the 2018–’2019 J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show (UBCBS), which took place within the IMS Minneapolis event last weekend. And, yes, the prize holders automatically get to compete in the championship round in Chicago on February 17. Within the nine announced classes we saw a couple of bikes win for multiple classes, along with a nice crop of vintage stunners.

“As the transportation industry moves toward electric-powered vehicles, it is our responsibility as a museum to accurately represent this progression with our exhibits,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “Because of the growing popularity of e-bikes, we felt it was the right time to debut “Electric Revolution” and show our audience how these ultra-stylish and contemporary designs are pointing the way to the future.”

Since zero-emissions is becoming part of the everyday landscape on the road, its a prominent part of the driving experience that deserves credit where it’s due. This will include custom, prototype, racing, and production electric motorcycles from CAKE, Neil Connolly, Curtiss Motorcycles, Alta Motors, Shiny Hammer, Blatant Moto, Joey Ruiter and more. American industry stalwart Harley-Davidson, who has graciously underwritten this exhibit, will also provide three recent prototypes from their EV program, including the 2020 LiveWire.
