Solar StreetFox recumbent tadpole trike, Show Stopper motorized custom bike
Hi, I am a retired Electrician from England. Many thanks for your designs, really good. Keep up the good work.
Here is my version of the STREETFOX. I have named it SOLARFOX. It has a Currie 200 watt motor and 80 watts of Solar Panels. The panels are hinged and can be positioned at any angle, for recharging the battery when stopped.Top speed on the flat with power alone is 18.5 MPH. My garage has a clear plastic roof so I just park up and set the panels out horizontally to keep battery charged up.
~ Best regards, Trevor
The Show Stopper
Found your web site today from a post at motorbicycling.com. Been planning on making my own frame for my next bike. Your site was very inspirational...thank you!
Though my current bike isn't as creative as most I saw on your site it still gets a lot of attention when I ride. Thought I'd send you a pic in hope of gathering some of that 15 min of fame.
Thanks again for your efforts!
