It depends on how much of the frame you mean.I saw on TV that Morgan builds a wood frame for their car and was wondering if a similar frame could be made of laminated bamboo for a reverse trike. Specifically, I would like information on the best epoxy to use for laminating the bamboo.
I thought Hybrids were typically heavier? This is in the range possible by a pure EV... if you can charge at each end would be a breeze.I am planning a 2 seater trike as light as possible, hopefully under 500 kg, to meet the majority of my transportation needs which are a 120 km round trip over hilly terrain repeated 2 or 3 times a week.
I will probably have to make it a hybrid to keep the mass as low as possible, I am considering using a sub frame from a disposable econo-box to support the front end and the frame and ICE from a small Honda motorcycle at the rear. The bamboo would be used to support the skin.
Unfortunately, I can vouch for this....and it doesn't have to be broken to get to the slivers! Just slide your hand along a nice milled edge....It is also razor sharp when cut and if it shatters it will produce thousands of needle sharp splinters from the break point.
