  2. where I can get it , and cost

    What I really like about your project is that you used a lot of upcycled material. Now if you could only get more sunshine in the UK you'll be the next Trump! (Hmm that might be an insult, Got it Bill Gates!)

    that should have said dyson😉 started

  8. Ake Hilding says:

    I must say I'm impressed, it looks great.

  9. Beautiful build. Some people who used a shock fork and a powerful motor up front had a problem. The motor pulled the shock fork off their bikes. Again, beautiful build.

    whats the score regarding parts list and suppliers,drawings etc or do you build and sell.


  11. wow amazing trike good job, this is what we need more of in England more like sir Clive sinclare

    Nice build, very creative. But can you be more detailed on the specs? How many hours of recharging, are those 15AH batteries, how many miles can it do on one charge and last but not least; is it allowed on public roads?

  13. Mike Nelson says:

    Regenerative braking? The existing wheel rim caliper brakes don't seem adequate for the additional weight of batteries, motor, et cetera. Recommend fitting some bicycle disc brakes, like the ones used on mountain bikes.

    in favour of any E-trike that has no saddle and if don't have to hook up to a power supply even better and pay electricity bill. Power company are all for E-bikes hook up at home and pay for power .If have a E-bike make own solar power better still get someone Qualified to rig up solar power pack safety first. Anything with a relative big surface area for solar panel. Nothing to ridicules and not too low to the ground that no one see you.

  15. Niall Lawlor says:

    Any solar trike with the surface area for sufficient solar panel to power battery in descent time frame and water proof would nice

  16. Türk Best says:

    good job! did u use any "solar charge controller" between solar panel and batteries ?

  17. John Doe says:

    Great project! You could put more solar panels on the roof.
