Veteran actor Peter Fonda wants to recreate his road trip from classic movie Easy Rider on an electric motorcycle.

Harley-Davidson bosses last month (Jun14) unveiled a prototype for their LiveWire chopper, which is powered by an electric engine.

Fonda, whose character in the 1969 movie travelled across the American South from California to Louisiana, is a fan of the new machine and wants to take it on a road trip.

He tells, "I can't wait to ride it across the country."

When asked about opposition to an electric motorcycle from traditional bikers, he replies, "To hell with them."
