Hybrid Electric Trike 130 Miles Per Gallon ! Bicycle! Tricycle! Gas Bike
Hybrid trike I put together that gets 130 miles per gallon :)
a) Is this real or is this just a fake as some of the commenters suggest?
Real... I rode it for 2 years, and then sold it...
that is the guy I originally bought my trike from. I consulted with him, because he was very interested and with what I did, he tried to make production model as seen there, but near the final stages, the people in Taiwan didn't want to make it for him.... never got made, but you can see his had some nice advances past mine...
b) What are its technical specs, e.g. range, etc apart from that it cost $3 500+
24v motor. 2 12v batteries. 30 amp (15 amps per bank) charger. Honda Generator max output of 1000watts.
Gen could hold a half gallon. I would ride it to work and back for 2 weeks, 4 miles each way before a fill up. I would charge (electrically) the trike at home, then run the charger when I left. It would idle, but as the batteries began to drain, the gen would rev higher and make more power... Eventually, it was using most of the charger / generator power.... If I ran out of gas, it would continue to go (since it has been using mostly gen / charger and I could get to a gas station and fill up again.
c) Isn't the generator loud?
No. It's a 4 stroke engine make by Honda. Often times, with just the wind blowing past my ears, I would reach back and touch it to make sure it was running because I couldn't hear it. Trike went 16 mph and when the gen was reving higher, you could hear it, but it was still not "loud".

Briggs and Stratton Powered Homemade Prototype Buggy
A short video of my homemade 3hp Briggs & Stratton Buggy.
The buggy has an upside down car differential and a 3 speed gearbox. The
primary drive is belt drive and this is used as a clutch. The final drive
is chain drive from the gearbox to the differential. The steering system is
a steering box from a mitsubishi colt and the steering rods have been
modified to suit the buggy. It isn't very fast but can tow a car trailer or
a boat trailer and it goes anywhere.

My other builds and Playlists...
This kart has a 6.5 from Harbor Freight. They do not carry these any more
but they do have the 212cc and they would be the same type of thing.

Three dog reverse trike motorized go kart test footage
This is a the first real test footage of the Three Dog reverse trike go
kart built from scratch. The only components that were sourced are the
Harbor Freight 6.5HP 200cc motor, the wheels, and front spindles.
Everything else was designed, engineered, and fabricated by D. Soetenga.
This reverse trike was built for a $350.00 budget and it only weighs 80lbs
total with a 34lbs motor. After these test runs some modifcations will be
made to the design.
Electric rescue vehicle by Gadi Dudler Design
Solar-powered all-terrain trike is a green life saver.
Vehicles that are used for rescue operations need to be smart, agile and
should be able to perform their job in the toughest of conditions. Designed
by Gadi Dudler, this solar-powered trike has all the essentials needed to
work in the harshest of terrains.The vehicle design is inspired by nature
and carries solar panels on the top of the cabin and the spoiler that
generate the necessary power to run an electric engine mounted on the front
wheel. The rear wheels are mostly used for turning, but they too are
equipped with an electric engine that provides the necessary power the
vehicle needs in harsh terrains. http://gadidudler.carbonmade.com/ or
This is a home-made electric trike being tested by several people. it is
powered by a set of 12 volt gel batteries and a single electric motor. It
is chain driven and features two 16 inch BMX wheels in the rear and a
