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.

Pulled over by the La Mesa Police while riding my velomobile
I was thinking about asking the next LMPD Officer that pulled me over to
send a departmental email out so I don't have to explain it again. I
thought it wasn't my job to get the info out. After my interaction here and
giving it a little more thought I think I'll just call and see if I can
talk to the Training Officer, no big deal. It seems like whenever I'm on a
bike I can't have a good interaction with the Police

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.

Instant e-bike: electric bike conversion kits
Reaching legal speeds up to 35 mph (though generally closer to 20 mph),
electric bicycles are an option for many commutes. They can be pricey- up
to about $3000-, but there are plenty of conversion kits on the market to
turn your conventional bike electric. Original story here:
