I've been building trikes form old VWs for a while now. VW Trikes, Teardrop Trailers, and Other Toys – trike building, trike plans, three wheel motorcycles, vw trikes, trikes, custom trikes, TRIKERS, Custom VW trike, motorcycle trikes, trike motorcycles, three-wheelers I'm thinking about making an electric trike by narrowing a Ford 8.8 rear end and driving it directly. Vehicle will be less than 1500 lbs (650 kg) including rider and batteries. Going DC to start out. I want to use a smaller motor to save weight. Any suggestions?
