The history

An artist’s dream

Ever since his childhood, Dutch artist Janpeter Eilander has had a dream. An electric bicycle, that would combine two worlds of passion: science and art. Where ratio meets emotion and functionality finds form.


In 2012, Janpeter decided to stop philosophizing and to start acting on the realisation of the electric bike of his dreams. To make the world a more beautiful, playful and sustainable place. Inspired by the ancient Taoism philosophy and the famous Harley Davidson design of 1912, Janpeter entered the adventure and started the project of his life. B4 Bikes was born.

An icon is born

During spring 2012, B4 Bikes proudly presented its first prototype: the E-Cruizer. Hand-crafted in close cooperation with none other than the European Space Agency, B4 Bikes showed the world the result of art and science going hand in hand.


After three years of extensive development in the fields of design, technology and production, the B4 E-Cruizer is one of the superior models in the electric bikes industry. Ready to conquer the world. Fully prepared to become legendary.
