Woo Hoo! It has wheels and a seat! It's staring to look like a real vehicle!

Is that body cladding to disguise the body details during testing out on the road, similar to what the car manufacturers use?

Looking great! Does the wiring include brake and turn signal lights? I might be able to give some guidance with that.

Guidance appreciated, its a quest harness.

Warren, the bubble wrap is helping, l sanded a month for the wrap to go on (hate it). Iam just wondering where flex points will be. I haf to build in strengthening ribs and handholds for customer so that will cover that if there is a flex. Innegra will handle flex& brutal though. Fun now! 71 here today.

Start with a wiring diagram with color codes like the car manuals use. Timing transistors and capacitors activate the flashing. A micro switch at the brake lever for the stop light. Light fixtures for trucks and trailers accept LED bulbs now. See Napa Lighting, Grote, and Dietz catalogs. We would bond aluminum pieces to fiberglass forms for tapping plates. Angle stock and tubing could work too.

It came with everything, thanks for catalogs. The lil' LED's are easy, just drill a hole & glue in place w/windshield adhesive. Ray said he would come help.

Putting in a 4 exciter sound system from parts express.

Our son and his family live in Fayetteville. We should get together next trip. Riding the strip mall roads are the most challenging. I'd think carefully about doing Skybo.

My bike rack for the back of the van will hold two uprights but I am game to try most anything, well not quite skydiving;) Our son got married in his uniform, jump boots and all. I met with Greg Coombs of May Street in Southern Pines last year.

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.
