Gold & Leather E-Bike: Serial 1 Unveils Highly Exclusive MOSH/TRIBUTE

Vintage design, premium components, plus leather and gold: Meet Serial 1’s MOSH/TRIBUTE e-bike. Ooh la la!

This weekend, Serial 1 pulled back the curtain on its first limited-edition ride — an e-bike. But not just any e-bike. With this limited-edition MOSH, Serial 1 launches its new S1 Series of electric-powered bicycles.

Not familiar with Serial 1? It’s motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson’s own bicycle brand, founded in 2020. The limited-edition S1 bike made its debut at the Electrify Expo on Sep. 18. (Electrify is the biggest “e-mobility expo” in the U.S.)

The S1 MOSH/TRIBUTE e-bike “pays homage” to this vintage prototype

“The S1 MOSH/TRIBUTE pays homage to the stunning vintage prototype that inspired the creation of the Serial 1 e-bike brand,” the brand said in a press release.

That’s a big ask to live up to in just a single bike design. But Serial 1 did it.

The S1 MOSH/TRIBUTE is possibly the most exclusive e-bike ever made. How so? Production of the S1 TRIBUTE will be limited to just 650 units total — 325 available in the U.S. and 325 in Europe.
