Exclamation How do you like this trike?

Went to the beach today in La Jolla (WindanSea) and saw this trike......











I thought it was a fairly nice, clean build and kinda stealthy being electric and all......

Pretty cool, but I see a broken frame in it's future. Right under the seatclamp!

I like that deck tho.

I can definitely see that frame breaking there, and that alloy diamond plate deck does look nice!

I like it. The whitewalls kind of compliment the circles on the front hub motor. Makes a great parts chaser.

That seat should be okay. My Worksman trike is designed the same way and it's pretty solid.
That bike is pretty sick!

Actually that is the only thing it does not do. Between the low CG & weight on the rear axle it is very stable. Drifting is not possible.

The pedals work, and you can pedal it away from a stoplight. Street legal, and fun transportation. A true adult Big Wheel. Ride quality is better than I expected when I was building it.

I need to take some new pics, that was a couple of years ago. Some small changes since then.
