So I have put a semi shell on the trike. I'm missing the windshield. I plan on getting a polycarbonate sheet for the windshield. I wanted to test the aerodynamics of the trike with the shell. I was having technical difficulties with the electric motor, and so I went down a hill. It was a pleasure to ride this thing!

PS. I got a flat tire on the left side a day later(not sure why...) and my controller seems broken. I tried "shunting" it so that the 250w motor would suck all the juice out of the battery when I hit the throttle. The motor worked the night before the test ride in the day, but not in the day...

I also plan on changing the front tires to 16" wheels to give it more height off the street. I was dragging the trike uphill with the back wheel and noticed that the front would drag. I also plan on replacing the 3/8" rods with 1/2" rods for the front wheels.
