This Canadian built custom was designed for long distance hauling, and recently finished a 5,000 mile trek to San Francisco from Ontario, Canada.

SPECIFICATIONS

Type: Human-Electric Hybrid (pedal, motor, or both)

Motor: 800 Watt Brushless DC (1.1 HP)

Batteries: One 48 volt lithium @ 20 amp hours (good for 60 miles or 30 without pedaling) AND One 48 volt lead acid @ 14 amp hours (good for 30 miles or 15 without pedaling) TOTAL = up to 90 miles per charge!

Breaks: Two Avid BB7 mechanical disc breaks on rear axles.

Carrying Capacity: 200 lbs. PLUS driver weight (orriginal driver was 245 lbs.)

Max Powered Speed: 20 mph

Auxiliary System: 12 volt (car cigarette style plug) can power 100 watt inverter (included)

Indicator Lights: Red l.e.d. tails lights and a high powered incandescent headlight (both independently operable)

This is the tank of bikes. Built from industrial grade parts and overpowered in order to climb steep hills with a load. She's just finished a cross country tour, and she's looking for a new gig.

With a good, solid base like this, the possibilities are endless.

Would make an excellent:

-Ice Cream Cart / Food Vendor
-Downtown Package Delivery
-Grocery Getter
-An other cross country trip ;)


My name is Paul Myers, and I built the trike, so feel free to ask any questions by email, phone, or text.

Nice job of building your own vehicles and then doing a huge ride on them. Looks like you guys had a great journey. How many miles did you average per day? Did you recharge more than one per day?

We travelled about 60 miles per day once we got into better shape and out of the constant hills of kentucky.

We only ever could charge over night because our chargers were low amperage.

Having said that, our final day was an 80 mile day over the remaining california mountains and down to the shore.
