Gold Coast based electric bike designer and manufacturer Dillenger has reached over $100,000 in funding for the production of a new version of its popular folding electric bike, the Cheetah.
"That's the world's most affordable electric bike and it's offered for sale with a real warranty and from a company that offers true after sales service and support," Dillenger Director Sam Sewell said.
Not only has Dillenger raised over $100,000 in 15 days, there are still 30 days to go.
How does it work?
Kickstarter supporters are able to get themselves onto the Cheetah by pledging for a reward. Each pledge for a Cheetah increases the funding by $399 + shipping and in return the supporters get a new Cheetah all for themselves.
With 30 days to go, Dillenger is still looking to promote the ongoing success of this project.

Dillenger Pty Ltd
Dillenger began in 2007 when the founders of a small Aussie-based engineering firm were looking to build a custom bike frame made from an intricate arrangement of stainless steel rods. This seemly ‘run-of-the-mill’ hobby project led to the intriguing thought – ‘should we motorize this thing?’ Being engineers, the temptation to motorize anything was just too much to bear. This prototype vintage space frame chassis electric bike proved to be a bit of a hit and the company was asked to produce a few models locally for existing clients. One thing led to another and before long this engineering firm was obsessed with everything electric bike related.
