My Photo Production Van Velomobile

 "Just about have the skin on the van. put the lights on but have not covered the head lights. I got to test ride today for about 8 miles. I wanted to see if I could run the batteries out. It went as fast as 30.5 mph, but I ran out of road. I still have no brakes on the rear. It stops really slowly.

The front brake is not enough. The wheels are not strong enough for the weight of the van, so I will lace the motors in a motor cycle rim. I found some with the same spoke count. The Test Ride went great. The one motor does good if you peddle on take off. After I get the other motor installed it should have great take off as well. After 20 mph the peddles do nothing"
