I do not have complete drawings for the trike chassis that is in the body shell. I have posted what I have throughout this thread.
I hope this helps.

sorry for the long delay, i would very much like a copy of the patterns for the shell and any others that you think might be of help. my husband has decided to build two bikes( one for me, one for him)and he would like to make the shells out of carbon fiber.
thanks in advance
Beckie Ann
p.s: please let me know in wich way you would like to send me the files.(my e-mail... alizeea52@gmail.com)

Finished weight the body with all mounting and electrical is 45 pounds.
The frame with E-assist and battery is 50 pounds
So the total weight is 95 pounds.
I hope this helps

Hi Rick:
Rick would you please give me some information about the rod ends and tube size you used for the steering and where can I get them. I will appreciate your help. Thanks a lot for your replay.

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply to your question about rod ends. I mainly use 1/4" and 5/16 in rod ends. I use 3/8 rod or tubing with the 1/4" rod end and 1/2" with the 5/16 ends.
I get my rod ends at McMaster Carr.

Here is a picture of the 2 different type of ends I use.


By the way your project is shaping up very nicely!
