They have already raised more than a third of their $A11,615 goal to complete the documentary. Donation incentives range from a pillion ride for a day to world premiere cinema tickets, film credits, t-shirts and commercial sponsorship options.
Fred and Finn begin their journey on 8 October 2018 and you can follow their progress on Twitter and follow their progress on the Charging Bullet website.
Fred’s 1961 British-built Royal Enfield Bullet was originally shipped to India for military service and returned to Britain in 2013 when Fred bought it and planned a restoration.
However, when it was resting on his work bench with its old and worn engine and gearbox, Fred decided to convert the vintage petrol bike to run on electricity.
It features 12 lithium batteries from a Nissan Leaf electric car in the bike’s custom-made laser-cut steel subframe, with six more in the panniers.
The Charging Bullet still only has 75 miles (120km) of range, so the Charging Bullet will require plenty of recharging breaks on its 1200-mile (1931km) journey.
