Eddy, that looks like too much fun; I gotta build one of those.
I enjoyed an informal race series, but parked cars, unprotected solid objects, and only crash hats for protective clothing?
Here's something interesting > http://www.msn.com/en-us/video/peop...t-looks-like-a-car/vi-BBrO5MH?ocid=spartandhp
Hay! that's kool, sorta like a recumbent with four wheels ...........Thanks Tom .........Curt
That is just too cool! Not sure if that was the Bafang or E-rad mid-drive
motor. Either way, it looks like an efficient way to get around, with a
shorter turning radius than a bike. I want one.
Yeah I saw that on a suggested post on FB, so a motorized version that you still can pedal someone here should be working on soon?
I've been working on a velo car quietly gathering parts but the body is proving elusive and very hard to find.
Here's an idea of how it will look.
Steve that photo could have been snapped in my own neighborhood. It represents the quality of our creations designed it would seem with the sole intent of imparting great bodily harm to ourselves and much suffering to our poor mothers! Some of us haven't changed much in that regard.
Ya! Looks like mine when i was a kid,different body though, LOL............Curt
Have you fella's tried to find a good wooden orange crate these days? Not a one to be found anywhere.
I don't think there is a mother from that time period that didn't listen to the tone and degree of the crying as we came in the door so she knew what to get out of the medicine cabinet.
I don't know how my poor mother lived to be one hundred and three and a half given the number of heart stopping moments I gave her.
I love the simplicity of that design, Ed ,a 2x8, couple of
bolts, & some wheels. That would,(with a few mods), make a reasonable
chasis for a velo tadpole. I could see using corrugated plastic sheet
to form the shell.
Yesterday at the hardware store there was a gal with an electric
tadpole trike with a 2800 watt crystalite motor. That's almost 4 hp.
with instant torque. As low as it was, I'll wager it could do 50+
with a shell.
