Bottom line

Michael Blast’s Greaser is an impressive-looking retro bike, reminiscent of the ‘Board-Racer’ style motorcycles of the 1900s to 1920s. It’s easy to assume that this is a case of form-over-function. However, while the Greaser is heavy and a little underpowered on steep climbs, owners mostly report a fun and satisfying ride. It isn’t high-speed and the range is limited to 25-30 miles, but it gets a number of owners to and from work on their daily commute.

This E-Bike is Impractical, Unruly and Totally Lovable

It’s big, heavy, hard to steer, bulky, uncomfortable. You have to be a certain height to ride it. It doesn’t adjust very well. You know what? I don’t even care… this is a badass bike.

Greaser Electric Bike by Micheal Blast – Initial Impressions

It’s a great bike to ride. It’s a lot of fun. It looks cool. If you cycle all the time, it is definitely something that you can get faster than with your own pedal power.
