    Well there's 23tiny's 4 wheeler.
    There are some photos of it on pages 5 through 7 in this thread, San Diego's 7th group ride (some very good photos of it on page 6).

    Also, many people have made exactly what you speak of. Do a search on you tube.

    does anyone have contact personally with 23tiny as I PMed him and got nothing back and its been a month, also I was thinking not along lines of what is up on youtubebut a true pedal assist instead of just engine straight to rear axle and pedal redundant

    Gotta be careful with that 4th wheel though, you're getting into "car regulation" territory... even though its sub 50cc. Not sure what your laws are like in Ireland, but that's something to think about.

    The link in your first post didn't work btw, with google images, you have to click the pic then you can link the pic in the box(when the original website is in the background).
