Why build the Shed ONE motorcycle



Rewarding and Within Reach

Riding anything on two wheels is life enhancing. Riding something you built magnifies that. 

Part of the traditional motorcycling lifestyle was modifying, tuning and carrying out a major service with just a small range of tools - something that has become much trickier with advanced, high performance engines.

Building your own Shed ONE electric motorcycle, as with any self-built custom, puts you back in control. 





Upgrades and Future Proofing

The Shed ONE electric motorcycle is designed for long term use having a modular design for easy repair and upgrades via slot-in modules.

The Frame ONE customisable frame can remain a constant for any level of component upgrade.

We will support Shed ONE builds for life.






Accessible Parts, Info and Advice


Forum websites such as Endless Sphere and ElMoto have lots of advice from contributors who've built their own electric motorcycles and conversions from scratch.

Parts suppliers such as Thunderstruck-ev have downloadable schematics, parts manuals and help guides including video.

We are offering a free 1hr Taster workshop to answer your questions on the Shed ONE motorcycle. Just call to arrange.






Simple and Flexible Design

Electric motorcycles have fewer major components to squeeze in and around a frame e.g. no air intake, exhaust or cooling systems.

Apart from the motor which typically needs to be near the driven wheel, the other components such as battery cells and motor controller can be located anywhere - weight distribution permitting.

Our configurable frames mean the customisation possibilities are endless.




The Time is Right

Batteries were the one component that stifled electric vehicle progress for decades. This has changed due to the huge commercial pressures to produce clean electric vehicles.

The convergence of inexpensive CNC machinery, dedicated maker forums, e-shops and easy worldwide delivery means there is a wealth of readily available motorcycle custom parts that can be used on your own build.





The Psychology Perspective

(it kind of gives you permission)


Psychologist Maslow represented the layers of human need in a handy triangle.

The top 3 layers  explain why YouTube has thousands of videos of amazing, bonkers, life-enhancing, sometimes life-threatening self-built stuff.

Basically, Maslow seems to be saying we can't help it.
