Default Re: 1980 Pedal Power front friction drive 1HP 12v

Pedal-Power had 3 units back in '80, one was 1/2 HP, one was 1 HP, and one was dual power with a 2 speed 1/2 or 1 HP setting user switchable while driving.
The 1HP uses permanent magnets, unlike most starter motors of the time

The motor on the trike was just too difficult to control, with the trike on
2 wheels going around most corners (motor was either on or off)

With the friction wheel on the tire and running with no load
the bell speedo says 20 MPH

which HP motor do you have ?
