Solar StreetFox recumbent tadpole trike - AtomicZombie.com
"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 the battery charged up. Best regards, Trevor."
