Hand built to a design of Brad Graham of Atomic Zombie fame.
This started out as a basic 18 gear recumbent trike, to which I added a 200 watt x 24 volt Currie Electro Drive electric bike motor and then thought about charging the battery by Solar panels.
The result is the SolarFox.
It has 80 watts of Solar panels fitted to the rear. When stopped the panels can be angled via telescopic struts to collect the maximum sun/light for battery charging.
It is fitted with a Solar Charge Controller which prevents over charging
As set at the moment the range on battery alone on the flat is approximately 10 miles between charges. This can be increased by pedaling.
The trike can be used under pedal power alone, It has an extra low first gear.
Power is controlled via a thumb throttle.
This Trike is in the Builders Gallery section of .www.atomiczombie.com
Shall be sad to see it go but at 71yrs. old now I need to slow down and need the space.
Trike is in first class condition, fitted with a small bag on top of carrier will take about two bags of shopping.
No Buy It Now, will let auction run.
