    HaHa I have a solar charger. It's a small kit but will work for charging my 12 volt for the lights, they make a electric hub the puts energy back into the battery when pedaling or under gas power, the problem is the only make it in 26" wheel & I am running 20" wheels,..maybe someday

    Nice Work

    I love the work you did on your trike... did you build the frame yourself? How does it handle corners at speed?

    @hairstraightback
    The frame is a Sun USX-EZ3, I built & designed the bike mostly off the shelf parts, some fabrication was needed, Welding
    It corners OK the rear wheels are on a 3 degree camber that helps with the corners, but like any delta trike it can lift a wheel or roll if you take a corner to fast. I have almost 4,000 miles on the trike without any problems.

    The body is off a ultra lite aircraft & it weighs 13 lbs before I cut the bottom, So maybe 10 lbs
    The bike fully loaded with gas, tool box, batteries, spare parts weighs in at just over 200 lbs
