If you weren’t already impressed by the number of 3D printed bike designs that have been unveiled over the past year, perhaps this futuristic looking motorized bicycle will get your gears going. Created by New Zealand and UK based company ETT Industries, the Trayser is no regular e-bike, as it is the first of its kind to allow its users to 3D print replacement parts.

The e-bike, which was made available for pre-sale about a month ago, costs £1,700 (about 2,430 USD), and boasts an impressive structure and aluminum frame design. Reportedly a breeze to ride, ETT’s Trayser e-bike is powered by a 42V lithium ion battery, giving the bike a solid range of 60 miles an hour (with minimum peddling) at up to 15.5 miles per hour. According to the electric bike company, to fully charge the bike’s battery should take about 300 minutes.

To maintain the one-of-a-kind e-bike, ETT has gone in a new direction and has made .STL files for certain replacement parts available to its clients. Listed on its website, under their Future Factory heading, are 3D printable files for the Trayser’s rear mudguard and mudguard bracket, and its front brake clip. The company’s other motorized bike, the Raker, also has 3D printable parts listed, including accessories like a cup holder, iPhone mounts, and speaker mounts.

As the forward thinking company states on their website, “We want to help all our customers to personalise and get the most from their electric bikes, by offering them unique and interesting parts, as well as spares, that they can 3D print at home for free.”

According to the company, their “future factory” selection, which admittedly is rather limited at the moment, will keep expanding, allowing their dedicated riders to not only find new replacement parts to 3D print, but to get involved in the e-bike 3D printing community.

As the files are available for free download through the company’s website, you can easily 3D print your own Trayser or Raker parts at home, and if you don’t, you can simply 3D print them through an additive manufacturing service such as Shapeways. For those without 3D printers who want to view the files, ETT Industries suggests using Autodesk Meshmixer, which can also be downloaded for free. Additionally, and I’m sure this goes without saying to all you makers out there, with the .STL files on hand what is stopping you from customizing the designs further and turning the e-bike into something truly of your own.

The Trayser is currently available for order through ETT Industries’ website in a limited range of colors, including bright blue, white, grey, and dark blue. Check out the video below to see how it rides:
