Looking good. Southco is a good source for hardware. Any plans for a tail?

Top and rear cowling will come over next 4 months.

Get this unibody out of shop (its my doctors) and start prepping mold for another unibody & work on 2 wheeler a lil'. (2 wheeler is complete from seat backwards)!

Heres the rear cowling but i will use it to make a 2 part plug.

Yes, contrasting bright colors make for a great visual attention getter.

l just like this rear cowling because it is close and tucked up @ rear tire and weighs nothing. But also easy access to whole rear end and quick. Parts can be be easy to clean and inspect. Most velos are hard to get to back there. It holds rear wireing harness with leds and small plactic cannon plug @ firewall mount.

This cowling can also go on 2 wheeler iam building.

Nothing much more to say about my cf velo. I am finishing top. Month l will make another cf velo unibody, this one will have no battery or motor and it will have a single swingarm rear. Much lighter.

I tested it tough, 10mm chain wheel axles, macpherson strut frt suspension, tiller T-bar steering.

I love these things: l can make you one.

Went together quick painted, new nuts & bolds on unit. Watching epoxy dry for vertical rear seat mount, chain wheel, grocery hooks, etc.. May build a pick-up truck bed on back.

Looking great! Given our current state of DMV classes here in NY I could readily build a four wheel electric velomobile and call it a limited use vehicle (top speed 40 mph). Potentially a 500 mpge electric hybrid with a good aero package.

-----------------
The bafang is on this one below: bafang's go on boom or rear wheel, check out YouTube if someone is interested. Bafang is interesting in velomobile below for running round town.

I could say l never need a trike again ever. Been riding today for first time, 7 day build. Two of those on composite piece behind seat. This is money well spent and a great design from the netherlands.

This will be a great unit in my cf velomobiel photo post above.

Just finished my first seat with this new mold. Bout 45 mins. I will razor cut perimeter later tonight at the perfect cure time. Carbon sands like a dream. Lol, l worked on this plug and mold forever.

Just trimmed scrap cf excess off (8 feet) now, the epoxy was perfect, cut like butter: see the hook blade l use. I waited bout 4 hours for the medium hardner/this is epoxy, not poly or vinylester from compositeenvisions.com

[/URL]

Saves a bad mess Monday morning after full cure. Just wet sand perimeter after full cure. Same with most all molds.

[/URL]

I am using quest seat but this new seat is stretched for two wheeler and my mule 4 wheeler shop velo. I actually rode the plug before l pulled a mold from it.
